Cons: Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Weight, Materials, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
I'm sorry I must give this machete such a bad review. But it just doesn't cut it. It does not have a true handle, just a leather strip wrapped around the steel tang. I fashioned a grip out of hardwood, T-nuts and epoxy. It is excessively heavy, and does not hold an edge. After a chopping few small dried-oak branches, the blade was dull! Also, the sheath is not made of leather, but some sort of pressed cardboard. The belt-Ioop actually broke while I was carrying it on a clearing hike! I finally discarded it in a recycling bin and threw the sheath away. My advice: If you're in the market for a machete for clearing, chopping, and the like -- buy a brand-name product, not a Rambo-movie knock-off.
