4 out of 5 eggsYou gotta have one of these!

Pros: Solid construction, and comfortable grip. I appreciate the fact that the hand guard has a metal liner to better protect the hand. 24" blade length makes this machete useful ...for a lot of things. The blade is quite thick for a machete, so there's plenty of heft to the blade. It feels much like a real saber/cutlass. The blade is also convex ground by hand. I wouldn't want to be on the receiving en of one of these!

Cons: Mind you, this is a machete, so it is intended as a beater. Although it is made very durable, the fit and finish of the actual blade is hit or miss. The blade is sharp, but could use some deburing. The hand sharpening is also done quick and dirty, so the curvature of the cutting edge sometimes has flat spots where too much grinding was done (Mine cleaned up OK though). The back of the blade as well as the point clip is quite rough, so some file work may be desirable.

Other Thoughts: There are some websites/vendors that will clean up the blade and improve the grind for an additional fee. For mine the cleanup was a bit of work, but it was worth it. The steel quality and heat treatment is quite good, however. A better finish would have given it 5 stars easily; Still, is is worth the price.
