Pros: Finish, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Bought this because I was looking for a shorter than usual machete and it works great. You might not want to use it for clearing trails, but for lighter work, it will do. With the thicker blade it cuts well, it has enough weight to do most jobs, but for thicker branches it will take some extra time and effort. Chopped vines and branches up to about two inches and it worked well. The handle absorbs a lot of the shock and is comfortable in the hand. Chopped for about half an hour with no problems and no hot spots. Haven't used to baton yet, but should work well with the thick blade. Not sure exactly what type of steel it is, but didn't have any problems with edge rolling or chipping. You will want to keep it oiled though, it is Carbon steel. For the price though, it seems to be a decent knife. I say knife because it seems a bit short to be a real machete. Still, if it was all you had with you, you could probably get most jobs done, would just take more time. Sheath is a little cheap,but what do expect in this price range? It works . For $28 you can't hardly beat it. Thanks Knife Center for as usual great service.
