Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Wood Handles
Wood Handles
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.

Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Finish, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Another heavy chopper for larger limbs and pieces of wood.
I bought a couple of these to be used as camp utility tools instead of an axe.These blades are heavy and work great for chopping. The shape of the machete, with the blade drop away from the handle, puts the force of the swing at the front third of the blade.I like the "rough" forged look above the grind. The grind is smooth and the edge was sharp when I recieved the machetes.The handle fits my hands very well. The machete meets my expectations for my intended uses.I have several Condor machetes and the Engineer Bolo is one of my favorites.

Cons: Weight
Not for the limp wristed!
Cuts more like an axe than a machete. Great sharpness out of the box, and the convex edge is holding up very well. Sheath is sturdy and well-designed. Only one improvement I can think of. With the weight of this monster, an extra 3" of handle to allow a 2-handed grip would be helpful for extended usage. And keep it oiled if you don't want it to rust. Carbon steel is superior in every way to stainless, it just requires some simple maintenance.

Pros: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Weight, Materials
Cons: None
read specs carefully
This knife is suffering from a identity crisis. It looks like a machete but is far to heavy to be used as one, espically for clearing trails. The blade geometry doesn't do will for cutting through thin brush, its closer a hachet the a machete and would make a good substitute as one.
