Pros: Weight, Handle Material
For the money i keepem everywhere!
This "two Hander" is an absolute beast! Dont listen to the weakarm whiners. I can swing with one or both hands at quite a distance when needed or choke up for close work, its not a hard concept to grasp. I leave one in the jeep, one in the shed, one by the fire pit, one in the boat. Usually ya get what ya pay for and in a sense you do, your not getting a stabilized birdseye maple handle and a shaving sharp s30 blade for under $20. But five min with some sandpaper to smooth the handle out a bit, then wrap sum paracord around it and sharpen an edge n this will take a beating like nothing else ive owned. I thought id beat it n chuck it when done, but i cant kill it, over the past several years ive beaten it to a pulp and brought back an edge more times than i can count. Since seeing how well it handles abuse ive brought a half a dz so im never far from this monster mauler! Everytime i use it around someone unfamiliar with this pig they are amazed at what i can do with it, whether its diggin the jeep out of a trench or trail clearing trails to camp fire wood piles. This is well worth the money, this is my first review on anything but i thought i should let people know that if u want a good all around tool for the woods that wont make ya cry if ya lose it. This is it, when other tools weren't around ive used this for levering boulders out of a creek, a make shift unbreakable pry bar/lopper/fire wood cutter/trail clearier/ shovel/ baseball bat for rocks creekside/ fire poker etc. It's an apopalyptic behemoth! Ya cant kill it or beat it for the money. Gonna buy a few more to leave strapped to my quads racks and get sheaths for each from their heavy machete(same blade) Better to have it and not need it, Than need it and not have it!
