The Best Survival Weapon…Ever?

by Friday, December 13, 2013

First of all, I’m a fan of guns.

I own a bunch of ’em.

But no true survivalist could ever call themselves “protected” in
a post-collapse environment without a good gun OR a good blade.

In fact, there’s one blade that I’d have to say could actually be
the best survival weapon ever…

… the MACHETE!

There are a ton of reasons why the machete beats out firearms in
your ultimate survival weapons plan.

Don’t believe me?

Click here

Just a few small examples:

1. Proven Lethality – It’s been estimated that about 600,000
people were killed with machetes during the genocidal
Rwandan war in the 1990s. Essentially, the machete is a
short sword – and very deadly (in the right hands).

2. Stealth – Your goal in a collapse is to remain undetected
and people are naturally attracted to gunfire. If you ever
have to fire a shot in defense, police and military will
quickly come running to possibly detain you and/or
confiscate your weapon. Hungry civilians may think you
bagged a deer and will be seeking food. Either way, you
just blew your cover. But a machete offers silent, lethal

3. No Ammo… No Re-loading – Any soldier will tell you that
in a real battlefield firefight, your biggest concern is
running out of ammo. Face it, you can only carry so much
and when you’ve unloaded your last round, your AR-15 is
basically a giant paperweight. Machetes don’t run out of
ammo and it’s likely that most people you’ll be forced to
defend against will have melee weapons anyway (like knives,
bats, tire irons, shovels, axes, etc.) The machete has a
convincing advantage over all of these.

These are only a few of the obvious reasons for why the machete is such
a critical survival weapon.

But here’s the key to the machete’s true potential as a defense

It’s only as effective as the person who wields it!

Just as you wouldn’t think to buy a handgun and not take it to
the range to become tactically proficient with it, nor could you
expect to be a true “machete master” without knowing how to
actually use a machete in real life-or-death combat.

You’re in luck…

Great article, personally I think you may be right, however surely the best weapon we have at our disposal is ‘Our Mind’ we can keep it sharper than any blade, and it fires quicker than any pistol, it packs more punch than heavy artillery and will look after you when you need protection.

I’ve been a firm believer in bladed weapons for as long as I can remember–I’ve carried a knife all my cognitive years–I do carry a firearm but will still relie on a blade in an instent.

0 Thank god you said machete. I’m a little tired of people thinking they can pick up a sword after watching “The Walking Dead”. I’m a European Martial Arts instructor and I can’t count the number of people that come to me thinking they can naturally use a sword. Whether it’s a Katana or a European Longsword, no sword cuts for you. You cut with your while body, especially with your mid section and hips. A machete is a simple durable weapon that’s very forgiving of bad edge alignment. If you understand the simple concept of closing the line of… Read more »

I’d have to disagree. While a machete is an excellent survival weapon, it lacks the versatility of the straight handled GI folding entrenching tool(shovel) which handles much the same as a spiked double bitted battle axe at less weight. It can block, chop, slice and thrust. Not to mention hook an attacker or their weapon. And that’s just its combat uses. Digging(entrenching), chopping wood, prying, hammering, and even as a grappling hook. Let me know when your machete can do half that, lol.

I have to agree with you.I think you have had hand to hand combat training in the US Army.

In Vietnam we sharpened the edges of out entrenching tools for close support fighting. They are a formidable weapon.

Nepalese khukri is awesome and relatively inexpensive. Damn near indestructible. In a close combat situation these knife/machetes are pretty hard to beat. A silenced pistol is the only thing better, imho.

0 NOT ALL MACHETES are made equally either. There are some real pieces of crap out there that call themselves machetes, that are cheaply made, painted black to hide the inferior metal and generally made in some Indo-Asian country. A good machete has a slight heft to it, and the blade runs the full length and width of the handle. The handle should be easy to grip, but have a secure non slip feel to it as you swing it around. The fit and feel of the handle is important, for if it is made of cheap material and riveted… Read more »

I like my cold steel kukri, it will do everything a machete will and then some.
