    Great bush clearing machete for a good price. Most machetes swing like axes, very front heavy. This one is has a much more balanced feel, which is a plus for me. The only detraction is that it was not sharp out of the box. It only had the factory rough edge angle. Not an issue for me, as I easily put a nice edge on it. Once sharpened, the edge held well. Blasted through bramble and 1″ thick saplings like a pro.
