the BEST machete!
this is the BEST machete that I've seen. This machete came as a result of collaboration with Esee guys and El Salvadoran knife manufacturer. They know machetes! The ESEE machete is a true machete. The size, the thickness and weight is perfect. Great 1075 carbon steel. the handle is high quality canvas micarta. Yes, the same micarta found on expensive knives. The handle is ergonomic and finished well. (unlike on other machetes with handles that cause hot spots and blisters). Micarta itself is an expensive material that's why this machete is not cheap. if you want cheap or inexpensive machete, get a Tramontina. other machetes are good deal however if you want high quality machete that you don't have to correct or modify, this is the machete for you. I think it's worth the price without a doubt! the sheath is ok at this price point. Don't' expect high quality kydex or nylon sheath, It's not gonna happen at $60 dollars. if you don't like the sheath, make your own or have one made. The ESEE machete is a really good product.

good machete
good overall quality but a little overpriced and too light for heavy work. Good for brush but not on wood, not sharp out of the box, sheat is very cheap, handle is cheap but confortable for prolonged work session. Overall is something I suggest to friends.
