    25 Uses of the Machete

    In much of the world, machetes are a part of daily life. Generally speaking, the machete is a cross between a knife and an ax. The machete blade is used for cutting, while the weighted upper blade provides force for chopping. Here is a few of the uses:

    1. Cut and maintain trails.

    2. Brush clearing

    3. Chopping compost to break it into small pieces that break down quickly.

    4. Cutting vegetation for use in composting.

    5. Carving and incising wood.

    6. Firewood and tinder gathering.

    7. Clearing a new campsite.

    8. Woodlot management.

    9. Creating meadows and brushy habitat for hunting or wildlife management: Diversify habitats.

    10. Hedge construction.

    11. Removing side branches from a main trunk for making posts and poles.

    12. Pruning and trimming bushes and trees.

    13. Removing vines: Apply herbicide to the chopped surface to kill the base and roots of the vine.

    14. Making homemade poles or teepee trellis systems using stakes cut from nearby vegetation.

    15. Rice, sugar cane, corn, rye, millet, barley, buckwheat, oats, and other crop cultivation and harvest.

    16. Removing cover crops or dead plant residue from gardens by scalping the above ground vegetation and leaving the root biomass in place.

    18. Useful for fending off wild animals and killing venomous snakes.

    19. Cutting livestock fodder.

    20. Slaughtering caught or trapped wild game, poultry and other livestock.

    21. Raspberry, Blackberry, Grape, and other vine pruning: Hooks work great for pulling canes.

    22. Lawn mowing: Swing parallel to the ground to clear grass.

    23. Nut/fruit splitting: The coconut being the classic example.

    24. Butchering and meat processing: Quickly break deer or large livestock carcasses into manageable pieces.

    25. Shelter construction. Cut poles and roofing materials. Useful for creating the lattice in wattle and daub housing and cutting straw in straw bale construction.
