Jason Voorhees Machete
The machete knife may have originally been devised for agricultural purposes, but to any fan of the Friday 13th movies it is instantly recognisable as the weapon of choice for Jason Voorhees, the main protagonist of the movie series. Although the sight of a hockey mask and machete may have become synonymous with his character, we can attribute the reason Jason first picked up a machete, or sought to kill, to the actions of his mother, Pamela Voorhees.
Beside herself with grief and harbouring dark thoughts towards the counsellors she held responsible for Jason’s supposed drowning, an unhinged Pamela sets out to avenge her son’s death and ensure no one ever comes to stay at Lake Crystal ever again.
Pamela’s first machete victim is Claudette, one of the counsellors she believes were neglectful of Jason and responsible for his death. Many victims later, Pamela is pursuing the last surviving counsellor, Alice, with a machete that had earlier been used by Bill to kill a snake in Alice’s cabin. Alice puts up a brave struggle, striking her attacker with a frying pan and rendering her unconscious. Staggering outside, Alice is hotly pursued by a machete wielding Pamela, intent on murder. The struggle that ensues culminates in Alice decapitating Pamela Voorhees with her own machete. The event is witnessed by Jason. He salvages his mother’s severed head, sweater pants and the machete.
Jason’s mission becomes that of his mother’s: to keep unwanted intruders from Camp Crystal and to avenge her death. It seems only appropriate that Jason would select the very machete that was used to perpetrate his mother’s murder as his chosen weapon.
Although several other characters are known to use a machete throughout the Friday 13th movies including Pamela Voorhees, Freddie Krueger, Tommy Jarvis and Trish Jarvis, it is the image of Jason Voorhees, clad in hockey mask and brandishing a machete that has become the iconic image of Friday 13th movies
Best Machete Prop

Jason would be proud.
