Product came right on time and as ordered. Engraving was a nice addition as this was a gift for my son. Would definitely order from Knife Depot again.
Bought as a gift. Looks to be a quality tool. The Honing stone is a little small. I bought a Lanksy puck, which might be a little overkill.
The knife was great.
Bought this tool for our son in law. Like it so much we are thinking of buying one for us.
I took this backpacking and chopped firewood up to 4 inches thick with ease will stay in pack a lot lighter than hatchet
Pretty incredible actually. I like the fact that it comes sharpened satisfactorily. Very versatile. I've spent some time in the woods with it and found it very useful. A great chopper, surprisingly so, rivals the efficiency of a good hatchet. Unsure yet that I like the hand guard, seems like it would be useful, but it also scrapes my knuckles a little. I have other machetes, I think this one may win out as the favorite to carry based on versatility.
Great workmanship a quality made machete.
Excellent quality-presented well, and delighted those of us who have lots of woods to clean out. Made in USA Bravo!
Bought it for my husband for Christmas present He loved it. He's difficult to buy for, but he likes to work outdoors and this item was perfect.
I've owned a Woodman's Pal Premium for about 4 years now. The second one I purchased was a gift to one of our sons. This is a first class item.
Great tool, well worth money, wear glove until handle get broke in.
Great tool for all around brush clearing. The knuckle guard is a great addition. The heft if the tool reduces bounce back and makes cleaner cuts the first time.
Great product. Very well made.
For years I have been in search of a quality machete that is all business rather than show. All I have been able to find are Asian made soft metal thin blade wannabes. This Woodman's Pal is the real deal, solidly built with enough mass to carry your stroke though whatever you are chopping. Well crafted and the leather handle offers a solid perch for even the sweatiest chores.
Nice machete. Sturdy built & feels good in the hand. Great for cutting brush.
Just what the Dr. ordered.
After using this tool only once, it's easy to see why it has been around so long with hardly any changes. ALSO IT IS AMERICAN MADE!
Excellent tool. Well made, comfortable, but remember all new tools require some sharpening!
Great to see a classic tool still made in the USA!
Works great! Love it! Have been wanting one for a long time and was surprised to get one just in time for pre-hunting season. Good balance. Love having something made in the USA!
Excellent tool, arrived well packed in a professional manor in a gift worthy presentation. Has more uses than I can think of. A must have for the outdoors-man.
The machete was better than described. It's a solid durable tool that made a unique gift for the man who has everything. He was very impressed.
This is an amazing life-time tool! Everything should be made to this standard.
The Woodman's Pal is awesome!! It works perfectly for clearing brush and cutting small trees.
This is the best tool I've ever had for cutting brush!
It is an excellent multi-purpose tool for camping! The Woodman's Pal is useful for base camp chores and can be packed in a day-pack for hikes.
I like it a lot! I used it in the mountains of NC and it had a nice, solid, heavy feel to it.
We have two and find them excellent for trail clearing and brush removal.
I feel this knife will be very useful in my job. (wild land firefighter)
This is the 5th one I have bought for myself and friends. Need I say more. The engraving made it a special, personal gift and the recipients loved 'em! TD
I have been wanting one of these for a long time. It took a lot of time for me to finally justify its purchase. I am glad I did, but I wish that I hadn't waited so long. This thing is really a nice piece of work. I carry it in my JEEP, on my belt around my home. Very handy, and nicely made.
We purchased this as a gift for my husband on Father's day. I am very pleased with the construction and the engraving (I requested). I purchased the 'Pal' with the leather handle; I thought it would be more comfortable. I think we made a good choice and highly recommend it for any outdoor enthusiast. My husband has wanted one for some time, now. He has no idea it is in our closet waiting to surprise him.
It is a great item and was received in a timely manner.
It's nice to make someone happy at Christmas. This is what my husband asked for and when he opened it he immediately ran outside to try it. It easily tore up some small trees we had sprouting out of some tree stumps. Boys and their toys!! He loves it!
The Woodman's Pal is a great all around camping tool. It is nice quality and workmanship, and was a unique gift idea for all the campers in my family this past Christmas.
This is a very good tool! It is sturdy and well-balanced. It is exactly the sort of item that rounds out the complete camper's rig or survival kit. I've purchased these for friends before, and figured it was time to get one for myself. I am pleased with my purchase and expect a lifetime of service from this time-tested implement.
Great high quality blade with nice carry sheath. Superb functionality and as an added plus, American made.
The most awesome gift you can give a man.
This was a gift for my outdoors man son-in-law. He was very pleased with it! He said it would be very helpful when he goes hunting, and also in making trails on his place in the Piney Woods of East Texas.
As with all American made products, this one is built to last. A real show-stopper during the opening of Christmas presents, everyone wanted to see the Woodman's Pal. My son can't wait to start clearing brush with this machete strapped to his waist. I'm sure that he'll proudly pass it on to his own child someday as a real family heirloom.
This was a gift for my husband and he loves it!
Haven't had a chance to use this yet , but I am impressed with the quality of the item. Hard to beat " made in the USA "
I love the quality and workmanship of the Woodman's Pal and it was obviously a product that was thought out by people "in the field" rather than on a drawing board in an office by men with soft hands. I actually hate to give anything top-notch ratings but I honestly can't find a gripe with this knife. It does what it's supposed to do and it does it well. It sharpens easily yet holds an edge reasonably well. It's a machete and an axe and a billhook all rolled up into one.
This is NOT a toy.It makes cutting brush and saplings with one stroke easy. Beautifully made in the USA with quality steel and craftsmanship. A powerful, well-balanced tool. I really appreciate the versatility of my Woodsman's Pal. It's going with me to my upcoming trip to the BWCA in Northern Minnesota!
I am very well pleased with the 2 WOODSMAN PAL I purchased. Delivery was timely. It was a little pricey.
This is a super nice item! I have used these before and decided to own one. It is very useful and handy!
It is obviously well built out of high quality steel. The machete is sharp as can be and effortless way to trim brush. I think this tool will way outlast me!
This was a gift for my son. He really likes it!
I bought this for my husband. He loves it and uses it often for a variety of thing!
I bought 2 of these. One for my Dad and one for myself. I'm very happy with the experience at your website just because of the smile my Dad had when he got what he wanted for his birthday.
I should have ordered a Woodsman's Pal long before now. It is a great tool!
My Dad was speechless on this gift! He loves it and takes it out with him when he goes out to take care of his bees or just walk through the woods.
The Woodsman's Pal Premium Plus is a quality tool. You can feel the craftsmanship right out of the box. Additionally, this item is American Made which is something we should all look for in everything we buy. I recommend spending the extra money on engraving a name or initials into this item--that was the "icing on the cake" as this was a gift for my father. Plus...the folks at your website processed this order in a most efficient manner. I would buy from them again in a heartbeat.
I bought this for my husbands birthday. He is over the moon with the quality and appearance of the knife. It is nice to see some things are still made with pride and workmanship!
The Woodman's Pal machete is AWESOME! I have been using it clearing brush from my farm property and its amazing how well it works. Its so durable and it goes through some of the thickest branches. I have really put it to the test out in the woods and there are hardly any marks on it. I am so happy that I have this machete. I highly recommend the Woodman's Pal.
Unfortunately I have not had a chance to use it yet, as I bought it for up north, but it looks great and feels good in my hand.
This is a top quality materials and workmanship create a very useful tool. The balance is excellent for horizontal or vertical swing. The cordura sheath is a bit snug ( may stretch with use?). The honing stone is nice extra.
I am most anxious to use the Woodman's Pal to clear some trails in our woods. Up to now the snow has been too deep. One of my friends brought one back in 1945 or 1946 from the army surplus. I hope you get a lot of use out of it.
I bought this for my father for his birthday and he loves it! He hasn't had a problem with it yet.
Prompt service, reasonable price, and an excellent product... a good deal for me!
This was a gift for my husband! It was exactly as described and he loved it. We are campers and the Woodman's Pal makes camping much easier, especially when gathering fire wood.
I have used my Woodman's Pal and I am very pleased with it.
This is a top quality product. My husband has had one for 15 years and likes the versatility of the Woodman's Pal. This one was for our son.
My husband was delighted with his Christmas present! This product is wonderfully crafted and should bring many years of brush cutting!
The Woodman's Pal is a fine tool. I bought one earlier for myself, and bought this one for my son as a Christmas gift.
Great tool. I had one of these years ago that was government issued and used it all the time. Unfortunately, it was stolen during a household move. I am quite happy to have a Woodman's Pal in my tool set again.
Made in the USA! Nice quality product, but wish it was a bit longer. I would have preferred the leather sheath too. I plan on buying more for gifts.
I purchased the item to clear brush and small trees from shooting lanes for hunting. It performed very well and I would recommend it to anyone for clearing underbrush and small saplings.
It is better than any other bushwhacker I've seen. It is much heavier than I expected and lives up to company claims and then some. Thanks!
This product is hefty and well balanced. Clearing brushy undergrowth is quick, whether your chopping or using the hook. Best of all, it's made in the United States.
The product was exactly as advertised and the delivery was prompt! Thanks.
This is a very well made tool! It is heavy enough to really do some good. I use it to limb up fir and hemlock trees. It works very well to clear the soft shrubby stuff too. It is a good quality tool and nice sheath too!
It is an excellent product and good service!
Works great, cleans easy, sharpens fast, and it lasts. It's also well balanced.
I bought this machete for my father on his birthday and he absolutely loved it. He uses it all the time to work around his property. This is a great knife and a great gift. The only thing I regret not doing is getting it engraved.
I am extremely pleased with the product! It is of the highest quality construction and performs fully to my expectations. I would recommend the Woodman's Pal to anyone seeking an effective and durable tool for appropriate uses.
It works great! I am very satisfied with the machete.
It is exactly as advertised. I needed to cut some paths through heavy brush to set up deer stands and found the perfect tool for the job.
This is a superb tool. I highly recommend it!
It made a lovely gift and was beautifully made!
I never saw this item because it was shipped as a gift to my son. He liked it and said that he has also done business with your site too.
It worked wonderfully. I thought it was odd that they left the very outer edge unsharpened until I slammed it into the dirt a few times. I used it to clear nearly 1/2 an acre and it's still sharp.
The machete is a fine piece of work! Everything was excellent!
When I buy something, no matter what it is, my first priority is dependability and longevity. With that said, more times than not that includes a hefty price tag. However, in the past I have spent fifty dollars spanning the course of three months for three different machetes, all of which I destroyed in a couple of days. Mind you, all I did was what the tool was designed to do. I am six foot three inches tall and two hundred and forty pounds, and can run like the wind.....very athletic for my size and I have been lifting weights for fifteen years. Basically, I bend cheaper machetes just removing two inch brush. The Woodsman's Pal is built like I am, like a brick house if you know what I'm saying. I can honestly say that this tool will last longer than I.
I have been wanting one of these for some time. We are very happy with the quality and the shipping was very prompt.
This is an excellent tool and very well made! BUY ONE!
Everything is excellent!
This product is really great!
I have been using the Woodman's Pal for trail building and have been cutting limbs 3 inches in diameter, and green blow down 4 inches thick. An excellent tool, easy to use!
NOT ONLY TALKS THE TALK BUT WALKS THE WALK ALSO. GOOD TO VERY GOOD ON IT'S ABILITY TO CUT LIMBS SHRUBS BRAMBLES AND BRIAR'S.
I love the Woodman's Pal...it sure has been a Pal to me.....I was able to cut with a single swipe and the blade remained very sharp....I used the honing stone but really didn't need to!
A very well constructed instrument that will prove to be essential for any type of camp.
This is outstanding quality and workmanship. It is an excellent camping/survival tool with more uses than a standard hatchet or camp ax.
It is a well crafted. I really like it!
It is an excellent tool for cutting brush and small trees. This is a professional brush cutting friend and my first Woodsman's Pal.
Recently, I decided to build a garage. In addition to a chainsaw and a pair of heavy duty pruning shears, I finally bought myself a Woodman's Pal. I have wanted one for years, but never really had a good reason--as if a male needs a reason to purchase another tool... I bought it mostly because of its looks--efficient. The large heavy blade with the hook made it look like it would do limbing and brush clearing more effectively than the pruning shears. I was right! After downing evergreens, birches, and many softwood poplars, the Woodman's Pal was faster for limbing than the shears and often faster and easier to use than the chainsaw for branches up to 1.5 inches in diameter. It is well balanced and not too heavy. After heavy use, just a couple passes with my diamond file makes it sharp enough to shave with. trees. Lastly, it would make a formidable defensive weapon if you aroused any animal's interest in the woods. A great tool at a very reasonable price.
The best tool for the outdoorsman that has ever been made.I don't go hunting,camping or hiking without it. When you put the Woodsman's Pal on you are ready for whatever nature brings.
Not only is the item outstanding but your price was the best around.
Very helpful tool on my property. Have cleared out some areas, and intend to do more this winter. It is well designed, with excellent quality control.
This is a first class tool. The fit and finish are more than adequate but the variety of tasks that can be handled with this implement is were one finds the true value. One of the best buys I have ever made. This truly is the jack of all trades in the knife world. This knife is tough and well constructed and will give years of good service. I have all confidence in the Woodman's Pal as an all around survival tool and plan on taking it on every outing into the wilderness from here on out.
Product and service beyond expectations. I highly recommend it to everyone.
It is a good weight and is very comfortable. Also comes sharp unlike most cutting implements. The price is worth it.
Great quality at a great price. Truly, a must buy for any outdoorsman.
Excellent tool. I should have bought one long ago.
I bought this as a gift. The receiver was very pleased with the knife. He had been wanting one and was thrilled with it.
What impressed me the most was the excellent quality and the fact that it is actually made in the USA.
Looks mean! It's very sharp and comfortable to hold. Haven't had a chance to go out and use it yet, (Seattle rain)but I can't wait!
Very effective in clearing various types of underbrush on my wooded property. The construction is first-rate and craftsmanship outstanding. Thanks for producing such a fine product.
Tool works great but is hard to get in & out of the sheath.
This is a great product that has been around for many many years! The reason for the four stars than five is the high price compared to other tools.
The machete is good quality.
Well, I did not purchase the item for myself. I actually bought 2. One was for my husband and one for my dad for Christmas. They both loved it! They said it was a great gift!
I haven't had a real chance to put it to the test, but it looks like it is advertised- tough, strong and durable. When I get a change to swing it out back, then I'll really know.
It is beautiful workmanship and I am sure it will outlive me but it is a little pricey. Still love it, TD

This was rated one of the best knives recently and it is rather unique. I enjoy using it, but tend to overdo it. It came with a sharpening stone which is great for the main blade, but tough to use on the hooked part. I need to get a cylindrical stone for that. The sheath makes it easy to carry. A leather strap for the handle would make it less apt to fly out of your hand, not that I've lost it yet. All in all, I'm pretty pleased with it!
The Pal works very well and it feels good in my hands. Cuts through this Georgia and Alabama brush with ease. Also I am very proud of the fact that its 100% made in USA.
I received this as a Christmas present. I've wanted one for sometime now and I'm not disappointed. It is balanced well and cuts easily. I gave it four stars instead of five because I would like a little thicker grip.
The balance of the blade is well thought out. The leather handle maintains its grip wet. It comes in handy when trimming back branches.
This is a nice tool and I use it for home defense.
I try to keep a path between our place and another not too far and the Woodman's Pal sure does make it easier. You won't be disappointed. I especially like the ability to cut the briar's at ground level.
It works great for cutting trail when we go hunting or hiking.
I'm still learning to use it, but so far I find it no better, and in some cases worse, than a regular machete. I use it to clear trails of blackberry and small elderberry trees. The machete has a longer reach and lighter blade, and cuts more cleanly. Perhaps with time I'll learn to love this, but not yet.
Well,I don't think the knife is very sharp. And I am not sure if I can put the right edge on it. You have to be very strong to do the things on the owners manual. No, I would not recommend it to someone else.
The "D" hand guard is hard on the back edge of your hand as you swing the Pal in the recommended hand-hold and swing described in the instructions. I would recommend heavy gloves or think about the wood handle with-out the "D" guard.
