Compre uno de estos y estaba cortando una rama de 12cm de diámetro y adivina el filo se dobló demasiado creo que es solamente para cortar Pan

Great blade that holds up well even under abuse. I have been clearing a bunch of brush (Read: Grass, Thorn Vines, Bushes, Small trees up to 4 Inches) along an old rusted barbed wire fence.
If I accidentally catch the barbed wire I instinctively wince because I had a cheap fiskars machete that was completely ruined after a couple hours of the same work. However this blade has only got a few tiny dings in several days and those should easily disappear with sharpening.
The addition of the saw on the backside is a bonus when I need to reach into a bush and saw off some branches and don’t have any swinging space. But the saw is mediocre when it comes to cutting speed.
My gator has served me well this far, I originally wanted the shorter blade option for strength reasons as I’ll explain, I have and continue to use my machete hard, it has picked up some dents and dings on the blade edge and I have not yet re shaped it but I will be doing so shortly using a file, I’ll have time next week to do this and will write a review on how it went and how easy or hard it was to perform this task using a file. A little history on what I’ve cut down, I initially started on thick bush type plants and moved on to more dense materials such as small trees and the likes and then moved on to thicker branches and that’s when I should have been using the saw back but me being me I hacked away with the cutting edge causing the bends and dents, I have to say I didn’t expect it to hold out so well giving its length and how thin the blade is. All in all a good machete but I am after a cold steel kukri type machete next and will review that once I purchase it, I do expect great things from it as I have inspected it at a store before and it has a thick heavy duty blade so we will see how that goes
