    Not great – not sure what the other guy is talking about; handle is tiny. Blade is thin, weak and dull – not impressed. It’s on par with one of those $5 Walmart machetes as far as I’m concerned.

    The only letdown on this machete is the handle. It’s WAY too thick – I had to ground it down to fit my hand, and even then it fits poorly. Handle is dangerously thick. But the blade is second to none!
