This is a solid machete however it arrived dull and without a sheath.
Just got this in this morning and I have to say it's quite nice. I will say that it's a tad smaller than I expected, but that in no way lessens the quality of it. I thought nothing of the shape of the handle when looking at it online, but the extra weight in the back of the handle is actually for a practical reason. Besides fitting very nicely in hand, it adds a significant amount of force to the swinging motion for both chopping and slicing, making it excellent for chopping wood or hiking through think woods. The blade is very sturdy and the sheath is very heavy duty, likely to last a long time. Although there was a little slip in the box that state that without using the proper cleaning oil for the carbon steel blade it might rust over time, so I'll need to invest in that. All said and done, after purchasing a sharpening stone and cleaning kit to keep the blade in top condition through extended use, I'd would say that this is one of the best practical use blades I own and would highly recommend it.
great sharp machete wish handle was longer
My goodness is this bloody fantastic, the handle was real hardened wood, and the steel of the blade extended beyond the blade all the way to the end so basically it can never break, it's a solid piece; and so even if the handle falls off ,which felt unlikely since it's studded solid with steel, you still have a single piece still usable or able to be re-studded. (meaning the entire machete, blade + below = 1 solid steel piece). The balance was absolutely perfect but it could have been sharper (but that can be modified yourself very easily)It was also of considerable weight and I even used it to split fire wood! It came with a really good sheath too that fits into your belt. Overall 5/5 only minor thing is it could have been sharper.This is something you can treat badly for 10 years and it'll still be brilliant.
