Machete detail.png

The machete is an item used in the Woodcutting skill. It can be obtained from the mainland Karamja general store and Shilo Village general store or by trading with another player. It can also be found by looking in Radimus Erkle's cupboard in the Legends' Guild; however, after the quest is complete you may no longer search the cupboard for a machete and are given the message "You don't think Radimus Erkle would be very pleased if he caught you rifling through his possessions".

The machete can be used as a weapon but is primarily used to cut Jungle during the Tai Bwo Wannai Cleanup minigame. It has no requirements to wield though cutting Light, Medium, and Dense jungle requires 10, 20, and 35 Woodcutting to harvest respectively. A machete is also required to gain access to Kharazi Jungle if the player doesn't have access to the level 79 agility shortcut to the south-east of Shilo Village.

You can also obtain opal, jade and red topaz machetes, which have a progressively higher speed at chopping down the jungles. To obtain these machetes, you can buy them from Gabooty in Tai Bwo Wannai, or speak to Safta Doc and make an exchange with him. Alternatively you can buy them from players or on the Grand Exchange.
