Pros: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Blade Material
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
Impressed to say the least
So I just got my cs cutlass machete in the mail a couple days ago and right out of the box, I fell in love. The sharpness is amazing, though there was a bit of burr on the edge. But a little time with a whetstone takes care of that. I was impressed by how little energy it took fo it to cleave a water bottle clean in half. I have had other products do the same, so, I thought I'd up thet ante. I grabbed a spare gallon water jug from my stockpile to see if the new acquisition could tackle this obstacle. First swing just knocked it over but made a cut... second swing, I used both hands (since I'm a smaller guy). The cutlass went clean through and I was absolutely floored. My only concerns was that the scabbard leaves just a bit to be desired and the handle material can get slippery. But that was a quick fix with some gause tape I bought at cvs... great job, Cold Steel and many thanks to knife center! I'll definitely be shopping more from y'all!
