The TOPS Armageddon is not a true machete but has no problems serving as one. This big bush knife is a hybrid of large camp knife and machete and could be considered the North American equivalent of the machete. Machetes are commonly made of thin stock steel while the Armageddon is made from 1/4 inch carbon steel. Able to complete the simplest of tasks but its heft is made for heavier tasks such as chopping wood or building shelter. If you like the purpose behind hatchets and machetes but do not wish to carry two extra tools, consider the Armageddon your solution.
