I'm very impressed with the Camp 18
I bought a Cold Steel Magnum Kukri machete to clear some brush. I was disappointed in the quality. It wasn't sharp, the grind was off-center, and it didn't sharpen very well. I heard good things about the Camp 18 and I've had good experiences with Kershaw products, so I bought one. At this price point, it's pretty amazing. The edge is not only sharp, it's polished! I cleared brush for an hour and found that it holds that edge well though hard use. It had no nicks and the powder coat held up well. The grind is perfectly centered. The handle is very comfortable and grippy. The hard plastic sheath is well made and set up for a range of carry methods. I see only two minor negatives. The blade rattles in the sheath, which is easily corrected by sticking a foam ear plug in the bottom. I'm left handed and wanted to rearrange the sheath for cross draw from the right side. I couldn't remove the screws holding the retention strap without stripping the heads (soft metal screws). I'll have to drill out the screws and replace them with better hardware. The Kershaw Camp 18 is an incredible value.

- Kershaw 1074 Camp 18.
Good and confortable Machete, lightweight and sharp so you can use it pretty easy over time; good handle for use with the naked hand but i'll recomend to use gloves. Is a great tool for clean paths and use as survival/bivac tool. The rigid sheat offers many ways of attach it to belts, backpacks or vests and also even to the leg using some cord; is a great buy that im proud of.

A new favorite
Just used the Camp 18 to clear some overgrowth bordering my yard. When I first received it, I thought it might be a bit heavy for easy use, but the forward weight, plus the fact that it arrived wickedly sharp, made powering through alder and maple saplings, along with some cedar branches up to about an inch in diameter a breeze. And don't forget the ever present PNW blackberry vines. Raining light and steady in Western Washington today, but with the grip design and material, it was very sure and stable in the hand. It appears very well made, so I have high hopes for durability and a long use life. Doubt I'll be using it to prepare meals around camp, but I guess I'll have a good defense tool as well if the zombies, aliens, or whatever invade the Pacific Northwest. I guess my only complaint is that it made brush-whacking easy enough that I cut down way more stuff than I really wanted to pick up. Price was very reasonable.
