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.
