    Very underwhelming

    If you intend to have only one machete, this is a good choice.

    – Short enough to pack, but long enough to do clear brush. – Blade shape gives versatility – belly to chop and slice, flat to draw cut and carve, acute tip to pierce.
    – Blade stout and tough enough to dig holes and hammer nails.
    – Comes sharp and takes a keen edge with ease.
    – Comfortable handle.
    – Functional sheath.

    – Baked-on coating wears poorly.
    – Edge came mostly sharp, but had some burrs – (easy fix with a file).
    – No ricasso (makes fine carving difficult – easily fixed by flattening edge near handle with a file).
    – Handle lacks traction (fixed with hockey tape).
