So I ordered a pair of these as part of my apocalypse set, and I must say these are pretty good. They are not too heavy feel good in the hand and I can swing them pretty easy. Down side is they do not like to redirect midstroke. It appears that they are made out of a type of spring still which isn't nessarily a bad thing but they do look a bit thin about the thickness of a cleaver. The strap is JUNK cut it off! The sheath is pretty good itself though I wish it didn't have that witch symbol on it I cut it off. You will have to modify the handle I just added some charnocrylite adhesive to mine. I was kinda worried when I shook one I heard it sound like it was cracking. Otherwise not to bad a blade.
I am extremely satisfied with this model of machete. But the wrap around the handle is only secured by a small amount of glue that needs to be re-secured every so often. Which is why I gave it a four star rating. The only problem with this particular model in my opinion is the glue securing the wrap. It either needs a little more glue or a different style handle wrap.
This was one of the first swords i ordered from this site, and it just came in today. this machete is amazing. it came nice and sharp, and it feels good in the hand, the handle is a couple layers of cord, which is nice, but the piece dangling off the end is separate from the handle, which is melted to itself to stay together. so if you wanted to take the cord off the handle to use, you'd have to cut it at the end, and it wouldn't wrap back up the same. the shoulder strap is a little tight, even at it's loosest position. the sheath itself though is very nice, pretty durable.
I wish i could give it 4 and a half stars, but i can't
I bought my first sword from True Swords, maybe 4 or 5 years ago. Since then, I've educated myself quite a bit on what constitutes a good blade. While I still have a lot to learn, I feel confident I'm making solid decisions when I make a purchase. I feel this is a good purchase. While many blades are claimed to be shipped sharp, this one actually is SHARP. This machete is the first blade to cut me in many, many years. Without looking, I reached for the hilt and grabbed the blade instead, cutting my thumb nearly to the bone. It barely took any pressure to do so.
For a stainless steel blade, it holds up very well. It's light and balanced well, so it won't fatigue you. I couldn't guess what would happen in duel, were you to parry and defend with it, but for everyday tasks it's a solid piece of equipment. It retains its edge well, and so far, unlike many inexpensive blades I've purchased, the cord on the hilt has remained intact.
The sheath is a standard nylon sheath, stiff for easy drawing and sheathing. I agree with previous commentor, though: a back strap would be nice. That does not take away my enjoyment of the machete.
All in all, I love it. It has become one of my favorite pieces, and were I to need something to defend myself with (short of a firearm) it is the first thing I would grab.
This blade is so amazing! Its pretty light, ships really sharp, and is one cool looking machete. Its a pretty badass blade. I only wish the sheath had a back strap to carry it on my back. But other than that, it's definitely worth the buy.
Awesome, very sharp, lightweight and well worth the pricetag.
This Machete is very light weight and fun to cut stuff in half with it. The sheath which I didnt know is only a shoulder sheath and barley hangs on your body. But if you want to see a video demonstration go to my youtube channel PretzelNugget- Black Out Bolo Machete Test
The machete is the best. A great replica from movie while also being kick ass. My only compliant is the health it fell apart in just 4days. And I barley touched the sheath.
I love this thing, it is sharp right out of the box. I made short work the box it came in, and it is surprisingly sturdy and fun to use. I already tried to slash into a 2x4 to see if the blade was going to have a nick in it when I hit something heavy. It was fine just like it was when I opened it. Now I am not going to test it on cement and cinder blocks or anything. Because that would be stupid. I think its funny seeing YouTube videos with people that do that kind of stuff with there swords.
