Pros: Handle Material, None
Cons: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Sheath/Scabbard
Not worth the money
I bought this bolo because of the overall nice design and the affiliation to pekiti tirsia kali. But i have to say this might be the worst spent knife money ever. Sheath was flimsy and the liner inside was cracked. The one i got missed the kali logo and the text on the blade, it was all painted black not powder coated as advertised on the pro tool site. Also the handle was not riveted but bolted on rather crudely, and they move a bit. There is no distal taper in the blade, it is just a stamped out piece of metal and feels rather clunky in the hand. It has no primary grind, only a really uneven, short edge grind. The short dull grind makes cutting grassier stuff all but impossible, and when using it like an axe to chop thicker wood it only bounces and jars the hand like crazy. Knifecenter has a great selection thou, get something else.

SAVE YOUR MONEY, DON'T BUY THIS! I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT WHEN I RECEIVED THIS MACHETE AND TORE OFF THE WRAPPING TO FIND ONLY A FLIMSY NYLON SHEATH WITH WHAT LOOKS LIKE A FOLDED DOCUMENT PROTECTOR AS A LINER. IT WAS CRACKED AT THAT, AND CAME OUT WITH THE BLADE. SPEAKING OF BLADES, I TRAINED AT THE JEST IN SUBIC IN THE MID 70'S. I NEVER SAW ANY BOLO LIKE THIS. YOU COULD BUY A PHILIPPINE BOLO FROM THE TRACKERS FOR 10 BUCKS, MADE FROM VEHICLE LEAF SPRINGS WITH A WOODEN SHEATH OR 15 DOLLARS FOR A FANCY CHROMED BLADE AND HORN HANDLE. THIS PIECE IS AN INSULT TO THAT MEMORY. THE EDGE HAS ONLY A 1/4 INCH TAPER, LIKE A LAWNMOWER BLADE. NOT HAPPY WITH THIS AT ALL.
