Pros: None
Cons: Overall Quality, Blade Material, Materials
Extremely Poor Quality!!!
First use, chopping small 1/2" diameter maximum branches from trees along a trail in N Central Ohio, the cutting edge turned over 180 degrees on itself in multiple places. Blade never struck the ground and there are no visible nicks in the blade. Blade appears to be simple untreated mild steel rather than tool steel. Lifetime warranty by Gerber is worthless as you must pay $15 shipping to simply get the same junk back. Time to bring mfg to the US from China Gerber.

Pros: None
Cons: Overall Quality, Blade Material
Shattering performance
Had bought this blade for clearing small trees, turns out it would rather tear bits off the cutting edge then go through a tree, didn't even have it out for more then an hour and it was useless 1/2" tears out of the cutting edge, blade itself was so flexy you could almost bend it by hand.

Pros: Weight, Handle Material, Blade Material
Cons: None
Best yet
I recently purchased 6 different machetes as part of a study for blade materials, features, weight and edge retention. This particular machete is the best one I've seen yet. The thing I absolutely like the most is the saw back - I've got 4 but this is the only one that has an angled tooth design that will allow you to cut through solid wood beyond the tooth depth, and because of the angeld teeth it doesn't try to bind in the wood as you work your way through. Blade arrived sharp and holds an edge well. Weight makes it easy to heft and the blade length allows you to work on larger pieces plus it's rigid enough to not want to flex under stress. Comfortable grip design makes it easy to handle. Good point on the tip for starting drill holes in your fireboard. When it comes to tools I could care less who endorses it or made it famous- I want something that works in all the ways I want to use it - this machete does exactly that.
