If I could have only one tool, it’d be a machete. People around the world have long relied on the machete, kukri (shown here), and other close kin to hunt, fish, farm, build, process food, and fashion all types of tools. Every machete has at least seven smaller tools built into it. Your creativity and practice will unlock the full utility of each, but here’s a start.
1. Point Taken
The point can drill, scrape, open cans and, of course, kill zombies. To skin big game, grip the spine with one hand and use the tip to do the work.
2. Leading Edge
The top of the blade is the machete’s sweet spot. Use it to bushwhack, dispatch game, clear shooting lanes and—if you’re brave and have a steady hand—shave your beard.
