Pros: Blade Sharpness, Sheath/Scabbard, Handle Material, Blade Material, Materials, Weight, Overall Quality, Finish
It may be small, but it's a big deal
Compared to other machetes, it may lack in length. But this "little" blade does the job. I don't know if David from Arkansas got a bad item, but I find no problem with the sheath, And my "mah"-chete was razor sharp right out of the box. I was ready to give it a little ceramic touch-up, but that was unnecessary. I took it down to a heavily wooded area about half a mile from my place, and man, does this blade CUT! I find the compact size a plus for backpacking, as I live less than five miles from the Appalachian Trail at the north end of the Shenandoah Valley. If you're looking for a compact, reliable bush cutter, you can't go wrong with the Mah-chete!
