A beautyful blade.
A beautyful blade. The aspect of this machete is very pleasant, the blade is spectacular and I enjoy my purchase. The efficiency of such a blade appears to me in bamboo’s field. Cutting through bamboos is effortless. Cutting through brambles appears more difficult, asking for more skill in machete handling. I think it is due to the shortness and the lightness of this tool. The only reproach would be for the handle, a bit too thin for me. Also the blade sharpness has to be improved. About Knife-Center, everything was great. Good communication, fast shipping and very reasonable shipping-costs.

Lightest sharpest machete I've seen
This is hands-down the lightest, sharpest machete I have seen - and I own many of them, from Ontario and Condor principally. If you want to carry a machete backpacking, this is the size and weight to choose. The blade stock is really thin for a machete - but sturdy enough if you're sensible. It doesnt' have a lot of weight behind it as a result, so you'll need to modify your technique if you're used to longer and beefier machetes. Edge-holding has been great so far - better than Condor carbon steel for sure. This machete should be about perfect for green/springy stuff - grasses and live conifer branches for shelter building. I like that the handle is orange, but in general the texture of the Victorinox plastic is better than the stuff Svord is using. The sheath could use some sort of retention aid and some additional attachment points for a pack. The handle sits so deeply the lack of retention isn't much of an issue unless it ends up upside down or sideways.

Great packable machete
I bought this machete for field work in the Amazon. Light, fits in my backpack and extremely capable cutter and chopper for the size. Holds an edge well, sharpens quickly. I made a kydex sheath for it and covered the bright orange handle with a section of bicycle inner tube for better grip and lower visual profile. Mine came back from an extended trip with a bit of rust which buffed out quickly. Best to keep some oil on hand if in a wet environment.
