Well made basic utilitarian machete. Excellent handle and good balance. Best suited for relatively green vegetation.

Just what I was looking for. Had to sharpen it a bit more but other than that it is a super machete for the price, wow!

This is a quality machete. It is well balanced and long enough to hack through most undergrowth. This is a fine product!

This is the best machete that I have ever owned or used! It arrived sharp and held the edge very well. The machete is an excellent length and weight. I am ordering another one.

A very good machete. I had to do a little sharpening on it to bring it up to my personal specs,, but other than that it does a good job of clearing brush and tall weeds. There are machetes that cost a lot more and the blades are so short you practically have to get on your knees to use them.

It is a great material quality! No in field use yet, however, the handle is designed for people with big hands. So far I'm impressed. Will write more when available.

Good value for the money. Gets the job it is designed to do done in a hurry.

Good solid machete with good blade. The handle, however, is poorly designed. Apparently the designer didn't attempt to use it otherwise, they would have discovered that when you take a swipe at a 1 - 1 1/2" tree/brush, and the blade turns causing the loop in the handle to wrap around your fingers. I still have a sore fingers from that. I'm thinking about cutting off loop in the handle - making it an open handle, but I'm wondering if would compromise the structure of the handle.
