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.

Highly disappointed with this product
I was given this machete for Christmas and the first time I used it was January 7th unfortunately there isn't much left of it after that. My brother in law lost his dog in the woods and asked if I would help find it. So I grabbed to machetes one being the Ontario which I've had about 7 years and the other one the gerber I unwrapped it in the truck. I managed to chop a few branches when I noticed the blade metal peeled half way through the blade where it had been making contact with the wood. Long story short could have impaled some one if the blade had of warn all the way through. The Ontario came through as always I was very disappointed with this product especially in a time of need it let me down. Blade is extremely sharp out of the box. The machete felt well made and I thought for sure it would have been my new go to tool. Metal was to soft. Can't give a review on the saw as I did not get that far. Only other machete I've ever seen the blade chip on was the Olympia but that's another story still have that machete as well. I only hope my Ontario will fit in the sheath never tried yet as this incident only happened last night.

Cons: Finish
Gerber Sawback
Springy blade can be good for quick extraction from deep cuts! Also can deform and never be trued up again. Fantastic grip but works better with smaller hands. Cuts AND saws like the brush demon it was meant to be ... Dude, use your diamond sharpening stone! I mean who goes to the bush with a blade straight out box anyway?? One month into field and absolutely impressed with overall design.
