Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
You really need to own this blade. It is too blade heavy for my ancient fighting arm but that is corrected below. The blade is strong and mine is convex sharpened. An edge that will last for a long time if you know how to sharpen convex edges. The same edge that Japanese blade makers use. Take the time, it is worth every hour of practice and the new skill will increase your knowledge of blade edges. Because the blade is tip heavy, I plan to take mine to a machine shop and have the blade cut to 18". I will then have them apply a tanto tip at a 45 degree angle. I will then have the machinist put a thirty degree inclusive, 15 degrees per side, edge on the blade. It will then fit into a GI plastic machete sheath at maximum length. I love these sheaths for machetes. Just cut to length. I will let you know how this turns out.

Good tool
One thing I couldn't Click as a pro/con The handle on this is quite large. I have Large hands but Dang this thing is big. Nice weight. It most definitively is a Machete. I took it to the field already and hacked through logs, Plywood, brush, and other natural Material. And Aside from the finish (Worn in, but that is expected) this thing is holding up amazingly well. Even more so than my 18 inch Latin Machete from CS. This is my new favorite toy. (Got the Condor Cutlass as another purchase along side this one.) From what I understand also, is the tang runs through the entire Hilt and Hand guard and it feels like it does too.
