Curtis M. from Ne OH
I got this to do some work in a situation where I knew the blade might get damaged and I didn't want to ruin my better tools. That also dictated my choice of a low-priced tool. It came out of the package ready to go, VERY sharp. I was able to chop down small trees with it, and its weight makes it equal to a good hand ax.
Before choosing this machete, I read LOTS of reviews and was frankly worried about getting a product that would need sharpened before using, or that would break in normal use. This one is solid, and worth the price.
