1095 Carbon Steel
1095 Carbon Steel
An excellent hard use steel, 1095 is a primary choice for camping and larger fixed blade knives for its extreme toughness and ability to hold an edge. Corrosion resistance is very limited with this steel (it will rust) and most blades come with a coating to prevent premature rusting.
Zytel Handles
Zytel Handles
A nylon polymer that is lightweight and extremely durable, Zytel can be shaped and textured to provide excellent grip.

Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
Butter knife sharp out of the box
This is a great little machete once you get it sharp. It took quite a bit of work to get it sharp. It is a good quality piece for the price. It's already cleared some brush.

If the swiss made a machette......
I use this machette for everything. Trimming bushes and trees, heavy or light, 2" thick and less wont stand a chance against this one foot phenominon. The edge retention is unbeatable. I have gone through many foreign and domestic makes of machette and, until now, i have been all but satisfied. If you, like me, are someone who needs a tool that redefines the meaning of quality, then Ontario makes it. Put the new and upcoming "Gerber Gator" back on the shelf. Next to this bad boy, the "Gator" is barely a guppie. Everytime I use it I remember that men eat steak and Ontario makes machettes. I wish I had stock options with my machette because there has never been a disapointing outcome or a sudden drop in value with the one that have loved to abuse for many years and counting. Thank you Ontario. I owe you one.
