The machete is one of the most imposing bladed weapons out there. In this clip from blacksmith Green Beetle, he walks us through the process of creating one by recycling steel found in a rusty old push-handle lawnmower. It’s interesting to see how he determines the carbon content of the steel on the grinder.
