I use this machete on a regular basis now, It's a very good design as far as handling goes,,,But I had to weld a piece of rebar along the top and grind it square to weight the blade as it's way too light to be effective as a brush cutter.
I have lots of land that has loads of brush and saw grass growing on it, so a short-heavy, broad machete is very useful,,, if Condor would make this machete in a much heavier , thicker blade to give it some force in swinging it at small trees perhaps it would sell better, but the current version is like a wimpy grass and sapling cutter, that is,if you sharpened it as it's pretty dull out of the package.
This would be an excellent little machete if it were not thin as a sheet of construction paper. It's a short version of a blade you would find in the garden dept at a lumber store.
If it had more ax like qualities like a thicker, heavier back spine it would be an awesome all around chopping tool, but it's not even sharp and looks like Chinese junk one would find at a flea market. Might be good for soft cane or saplings, but not a real camp sight tool....don't waste $$ here.
