    A katana blade has a convex edge grind (also referred to as an 'Appleseed grind') in cross-section. A machete has a wider, thinner, flat blade with a beveled edge. Authentic katana blades are differentially hardened (harder at the edge, softer at the spine, for greater durability), but machetes are softer steel all-around (also for durability).
