  Machete - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The modern machete is very similar to some forms of the medieval falchion (a type of sword), differing mainly in the lack of a guard and a simpler hilt, though some machetes do have a guard for greater protection of hands during work.
Machetes were the primary weapon used by the Interahamwe militias in the Rwandan Genocide, as well as the distinctive tool/weapon of the Haitian Tonton Macoute.
Since the 1950s, most modern factory-made machetes are of very simple construction, consisting of a blade and full-length tang punched from a single piece of flat steel plate of uniform thickness (and thus lack a primary grind), and a simple grip of two plates of wood or plastic bolted or rivetted together around the tang.

 Notes on the Development of the Machete
The machete, as used in America, was developed from the primitive whacking sticks used by natives to beat through the bush; some trace the design influence to the sailors' cutlass or the Californios' espada de ancha, though both of those are definitely weapons and are much more complex and much more expensive to make.
The machete is, instead, held loosely between the thumb and first finger and allowed to pivot in the hand through a large arc, thus slicing its way through the soft, herbaceous vegetation common in the American tropics and that of the Pacific Islands.
The machete is truly a common implement, in the sense that it is the implement of the common man, the campesino who does the work on the plantation, the hacienda, and the ranchero.

 Machete with Nylon Sheath - MWArt.com
Machete is a large heavy knife used especially in Latin-American countries in cutting sugarcane and clearing underbrush.
The machete as we know it today appears in many forms and shapes and goes by different names in the English speaking areas of colonization in Africa and the Far East than it does in America.
The use of the term machete in Spain is also applied to cutting implements of diverse sizes and purposes from quasi-swords designated in some areas as cutachas to short bayonet-like complex sidearms used by artillery men for clearing gun positions and for close-in defense before the age of rapid firing handguns.
