Pros: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Materials, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Finish, Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Probably the best all around machete for the price.
This machete has lots of power, isn't too big, isn't too heavy, it has a nice handle,not quite as good as the barong, but still a nice handle. Definitely a machete to own. Holds a great edge.

jungle machete
Buy it. The handle is a hard plastic that could be challenging to hang on to - I just wrapped it with some cloth athletic tape. The sheath leaves a little to be desired but I can't complain too much - it came with one! For as big as the sheath is, to do what it needs to do, it is pretty lightweight. If it was more robust and user friendly it would probably be lots heavier. Seems to fit the bill as a utility tool / self defense weapon. Unfortunately I haven't been able to use it yet. I have seen some critical comments of C.S.'s sharpening job - to that I would say: It's a machete, not a sword. I comes with a pretty aggressive bevel on the blade, more like a knife bevel than a utility tool. That said, it may ding up a bit - hopefully the steel is decent quality.

Cons: Weight, Overall Quality, Handle Material
A bit too heavy for long term carry
Made in South Africa , this blade is a little coarse but holds its edge well. Just a little too heavy for jungle usage..
