First and foremost this is a machete, it is not designed or marketed as a bushcraft tool. So I would agree with the previous review, it is not for youtube videos of complex wooden traps and intricately carved joints of over engineered shelters. The pointy tip is indeed light but the belly of the blade is quite heavy and this easily chopped down several Mulberry 1.5-2″, some similarly sized cherry and b/walnut. Cleared dozens of wisteria vines .5-2″. Than I cut down two Myrtles one dead at about 8″ and another green around 6″. Sure it’s not an axe but it outcut my Condor mini duku by far. It cuts way beyond it’s price and sustained little damage when chopped into the ground at roots. A great beater machete.
I actually cut off the tip and fashioned the end similar to the duku or Aussie. Made it more balanced (still don’t understand ppl thinking it’s not blade heavy)
If you want a machete that’s better at chopping heavier brush but still can do light brush and not be overkill this is great. It came fully sharpened, sheath is nice enough. Now I bought this for my property but I wouldn’t hesistate to pack it if I was looking for a machete to camp with. It will easily fill all logical and legal tasks in the U.S.
If you are looking to whack it through logs like youtube who knows. I have built more campfires than I could hope to remember and not once did I split the wood or cut it all neatly to a specific size. Grip is nice and solid, if you have office hands than you may want gloves. Blade sharpens well and cuts deep. Put that poor Condor to shame, ended up throwing away the duku in disgust. Want machete to be machete=buy. Want to use machete as protractor=no

The balance is wrong for any type of bushcraft. It is tip light causing serious wrist impact.
