Great blade for the money!
I originally purchased this blade as a replacement for my not so great sporty good store machete. I would not consider it a great replacement as the blade is too short, thick, and heavy for cutting brush while traversing through the woods, though it has become apart of my everyday carry replacing my cheapo hatchet. I loce this blade, not what I wanted to use it for, but its definitely found its niche. I have abused the crap out of it and it holds up great. It barely looses an edge, it has a great weight ratio, the balance is awesome and its great for nailing into a tree above my head so i could use it as a step. I wouldnt have others replacing their machetes or hatchets with this blade, but as a general purpose knife, shovel, hatchet, hammer and stepping stool its worked great.
