Pros: Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Material
Loved it... You will too.
I bought one of these machetes about 10 years ago. I cannot say how many situations it was useful for.Its weight is heavy toward the tip, meaning you can to some good chopping with it. Eventually I got to the point where I left the camp axe at home. You can baton through anything. With a machete proper technique is critical - no death grip. If you see reviews of these breaking this is why, Improper operation. Remember this tool is made of a higher carbon steel than most. You really can count on this tool to last a long time if you learn to use it and maintain it. This leads me to why I'm getting a new one. On my last campout I let a friend use it, (I actually chop my firewood with this) he tried to do the same and somehow it broke. I would recommend this tool to anyone, and get a good sheath, i like the leather ones with a pocket for a stone.
