Got 4 of these on BOGO. In its shipped form a couple of the edges were burred and the handles are gapped and not flush with the tang all around. The blade is a little thinner than had hoped, but being I bought them to bubba into the style of a poor mans daikaiju/ thai enep I think the reduced front weight should help make it feel stiffer. In the quick chopping tests I did the blades held an edge well even cutting through some dead hard wood. Overall for $5 a pop I am more than satisfied.

Definitely roughly made I can see spending 5 bucks on this not much more though. Looks to be stamped out of thin sheet metal with a quickly ground edge on it. It is pretty wicked looking but it definitely needs a better edge put on it. Mine came quick, like usual from budk, but one half of the handle was broke off. Not a horrible purchase but I would go ahead and spend a few more dollars for a higher quality blade.

My Review

I am a person who will spend hours of time researching for quality gear. This showed up in the mystery box and man, it is by far the greatest machete I've got. I love it. It's intimidating and sharp. The hook has many good uses as well. It comes super sharp but a couple swipes of my cheap sharpener and it was a razor. Made quick work of anything I threw at it. I also tested it by lightly swinging it into a log and it went 3 1/2 inches with no effort. Love it. Pros: Lightweight, Cheap, Quality tool, No rattle in handle, No flex, Super sharp out of the box, Intimidating, Made in Columbia by a reputable company. Cons: No sheathe, Rings when you hit it on something (I personally like it)

Pretty heavy beast for a cane machete. The blade is about 2mm thick, maybe 1/3 thicker and 1.75" longer than theTramontina. Definitely a chopper. It seems that they now come painted black, rather than the blue/black finish that might have been prone to rust in transit. I have yet to strip it to see the finish underneath. Pretty cool working tool. Just watch out for that snagging hook! Sharpened inside, the hook would be great for snagging small, floppy vines like Honeysuckle or even berry canes.

Ok but not great

Just got my Colombian Cane Machete was not impressed .Rings like a bell when you cut with it . Needs sharpened and has thin blade (maybe 1/8 inch thick) will be a good fishing machete but not much else .You can buy better from BudK for just a few more dollars . Not a great knife would not recommend spend a few more dollars and get something better .

Ok but not great

Authentic Cane Cutter

I laugh when I read that Gavrilan has "the best quality steel in the market" - this blade is the classic reworked automobile leaf spring, which may not make it the "best quality steel in the market" but makes for a first class cane cutter/machete. This design has been proven by thousands of peons over centuries of cutting and clearing in jungles and swamps and other tough terrains. The only objection is that the inner curve of the small hook on the back is not sharpened (easily remedied with the right tools and a bit of work). That part of the design, btw, is a godsend when climbing up steep, forested terrain and can be used to hook into a tree to make a handhold. This isn't pretty but it's a great blade for the job and available for less than a third of a Gerber Parang style machete.

Not bad

It handled the branches I used it on. It did come with quite a lot of rust on it....had to do some sanding. For the price, can't beat it. Love to find a sheath for it.

Not bad

Almost perfect

What a value for $8.99, the steel on this is high quality carbon steel. Blade came very rough ground but only took a few minutes with a file to make it sharp as a machete should be. I also sanded and ground the wooden handles flush with the tang and rounded them and now the handles are vastly improved. Hit them with a coat of poly after shaping and rounding them. This Woodsman Pal style machete is now perfection for $9, highly recommended, I will be buying another soon.

Awesome machete for the price. Did some testing on brush next to my house and the oranges on my tree out back never saw me coming. I'm a fan of the Gerber Gator series but this is almost up there with them for me. My only complaint (which is a minor one) is that my blade had some decent size surface rust on it, easily cleaned it up but that's all I can complain about so no big deal. I'll probably buy a few more while they are still this cheap to keep as spares or give away as gifts.

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.

I can imagine being chased through a Columbian jungle by a drug besotted Indian with this monster in his hand. Terifying! Then I remember I have 44 magnun on my hip. The Gavilan is awesum. Buy it.

This thing is scary looking. I can imagine some druggedout Columbian wearing only a breach cloth and chasing me through the jungle wielding such a monster and me only armed with a 44 magnum. can you see the result? The machete is impressive and very thick and heavy. Really worth the money. BUY IT,GUYS. YOU WILL LOVE

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.

better than long machete

Most people only consider the long narrow machete. Machete's don't need sharp points. But this type machete is far superior, especially for chopping. Short but wide--making it hefty and effective. 2mm thick (not 1/8 inch), but easy to sharpen. Wish it were 3 mm thick. Very versatile for close in work on thick vines and small saplings. Very rugged, full tang.

After you sharpen it you will have a Great Machete that can take a beating and last a long time.

decent machete

Looked for a while trying to find a good machete and finally settled on this one. When I first tried it wouldn't cut very good, but after sharpening started cutting a lot better. I like the hook on the end, good for raking up limbs and what-have-you. Nice machete, quality blade, handle.

decent machete
