  1. MICHAEL WARD (verified owner)

    This machete came with an edge that had the carbon burned out of it.not good, not bad.just the truth.
    It can be recovered. But when you hand sharpen, it is tedious.

    Best machete I have, and I have a lot. Nick it hard with your fingernail, it will ring like a bell. Steel and hardening is well.Shave your edge on it and you’ll be swell.
    Second mention would be a Hansa 24 Tres Canales Yegua paired with a Tramotina 14 Bolo for homestead, and for lightweight travel a Tramotina 14 Bush.

    Land surveyor in Georgia. This is the blade. It is the best on vines and light stuff.

    I’m a land surveyor in Florida, and this is my favorite machete. Not too heavy, not too light, and the red handle makes it harder to misplace.
