Personally I'd call that a kopis, one type of single-edged sword Greek soldiers used way back when. It's too big for a kukri even though the shapes are obviously similar (and probably cribbed from another, either via Alexander's continental drive-by or possibly when the Muslims set up shop all across the area).

Whereas to me, while it may have a curved blade the defining characteristic of a machete is its straight back, like so. Another defining characteristic would be that Machete don't text.
