This 24 inch “three-channeled” machete does have a wonderful weighted blade for chopping thick vegetation. The three grooves in the blade are designed to allow the metal to flex and not break when subjected to extreme stress.

The Hansa brand is popular as an agricultural tool for farmers in the Andes region of South America, as well as a standard issue survival tool for the Ecuadorian Special Forces.

    Now, that is special. I’d call it super-efficient, but for advanced users. The long and wide blade packs an absolutely huge chopping power, but on the other hand the blade is quite flexible, and it really requires skill to use it properly. “Weighted tip” is really not an euphemism, which is a major advantage for adequate jobs, but a bit problematic if you can’t swing it amply.

    Personally, I haven’t been able to get the best out of it, probably because I wasn’t using it for the right job (making a path and cleaning a spot for fishing near a lake, with lots of springy messy brambles intertwined in woody shrubs, which makes it very difficult to get a proper chopping angle and use wide chops). But the machete is well made, the handle is ergonomic, the steel is good quality, and the overall design is obviously well thought out. So, depending on where you live and what you intend to do with, it might either be your best machete, or a bit clumsy. Be aware that it doesn’t come with and edge, so you’ll need to file/grind it yourself, but then it’s easy to maintain.

    Best machete for sugarcane and elephant grass. Plus it girdles tree easily and chops right through most saplings easily!
