    I’ve had this Machete for about 2 Year’s now and it just amazes me how much work these blades can take. I’ve used it alot clearing walking trails and I’ve cut many fallen trees from the trails and this thing just keeps on going like nobody’s business! Imacasa uses absolutely great steel on these Machetes I’m very impressed! This in my opinion is about the Perfect weight on a machete to use all day. Get one you won’t be disappointed!
