The handle is made of textured, shock absorbing Polypropylene for a firm, comfortable grip. The Polypropylene is wrapped around a full hidden tang steel core.
Polypropylene is a high performance elastomers which offer many of the properties of natural rubber, such as high traction, but with increased resistance to heat, weathering, and chemicals. The Cordura sheath features three convenient snap-button closures so you can safely keep your Kopis at your side and ready for action.
The blade is inserted partially from the top and side of the sheath; 10 rivets along the edges complete this sheath. The back of the sheath features a belt loop with heavy stitch.The sheath is designed to be worn on the right hand side. In Part From Cold Steel: The Kopis Machete is based on an ancient short sword design that was held in high esteem by the Greeks, Romans, and Spaniards. This was because its uniquely shaped blade had the weight forward balance that was necessary for cutting and chopping, yet it retained a sharp, useful point for thrusting as well.
Our Kopis Machete is quick, fast and lively in the hand, which makes it an outstanding slashing blade. But its most winning attribute is its clipped point, which makes it an excellent piercing tool as well!Comes complete with a sturdy Cordura sheath. Plain Recurve Edge, Clip Point.

This 1st Generation Kopis Machete displays beautifully and is in Used, but not abused, condition.
Blade Edge & Knife Point are sharp! Now to get really picky - when examined very closely, there are three Micro chips in the edge of the blade, in a 5/8 wide area.
On the back side, end of the handle, there is a 1/4 cut (please see 11th & 12th picture). Slight cosmetic wear to the black finish on both sides of the blade. Of note, on both sides of the blade at the tip area, the black finish is worn away - tip of blade is still sharp (please see 3rd, 4th, 9th, 10th picture).The Sheath is in Near-Mint condition. There is slight surface wear to the button and the rivets on both sides of the sheath The sheath is perfectly functional - all three snap-button closures work, all 10 rivets are intact.

Overall, a b-e-a-utiful looking and rare! , purpose built, long discontinued, Cold Steel Kopis Machete in ready to use, sharp condition. A nice addition to any blade collection and it looks so Veeerry cool!
The sheath is designed to provide passive resistance on the blade to hold the machete very securely within the sheath. For the Collector / Investor: overtime, pushing the machete into and removing from the sheath will cause wear to the blade. Additionally, a lot of Cold Steel sheaths (and, in general, sheaths from all major manufacturers), will scratch the blade when the knife is put into and taken out of the sheath. I highly recommend to Never put this knife in the sheath; this sheath will, most likely, scratch the finish on the blade.Again, this is for the Collector / Investor - and I feel it should be said once again.
