Ontario Machetes are made to such a high quality that they're the standard issue Machetes for the US Military and Special Operations forces, and have been for decades. OKC has used their years of experience to design this Bushcraft Machete for the larger tasks your fixed blade isn't quite large enough for.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: Finish, Blade Sharpness, None
Very disappointed. The guy who did the grinding ruined the blade. Where is the quality control? On one side the grinding measure 1cm and is convex, and on the other side the grinding measure 5mm and is nearly flat, the machete doesn't cut well and it will be long to fix it by hand even with good files and paper sand. The template is great and the machete feels well balanced. The handle is well made but is really thin, it looks nice but if you have big hands it becomes slippery. The 5610 seems to be a good choice for this type of blade but for the moment I can't verify it as it cuts like an old butter knife. The sheath is very well made, it's impressive, really. By far the best cordura sheath I saw. But who choose the color? So I can't argue this is a good machete but the sheath is nearly perfect, the finish of this machete is more something you can expect from a low end brand not from a product at this price.

Fine Tool, Two
As a follow-up to above review let me add the following. This machete does the work for you, instead of over swinging the arm for power. Using excessive arm swing/power is the primary reason users lose control of the machete. Just look at machete videos where the user believes that the only thing that counts is the fewer number of swings to get the job done. That is why everyone seems to recommend a cord loop through back of grip for additional protection to yourself and others when you will and do lose control and let the machete get away from you. Don't try and over-power the machete. If your machete of choice is well designed it will do all the work required without extra force. If the design and execution are not well thought out, get a different machete! Work smart, not hard...
