    got this one a few years back, it actually has the best steel and most likeable handle out of all my machetes, it holds an edge like d2, and takes the same strength to sharpen. The black paint on the blade never wears off, the handle never develops a wobble, behold the Bidor! It is definitely like getting top grade steel for a regular grade price, crazy value, I’ll definitely get more bidors, finally I see a wood and brass handle on one!
