    The steel & heat treat seem VERY good on this blade. It took a shaving sharp edge and edge retention seems better than on other machetes I’ve owned over the years. BUT it took a LOT of work to get that edge. Yeah the primary grind was put on by the factory but it didn’t have an edge at all. Oh well. It’s a hefty 20″ razor blade now. The handle is serviceable; not sure what species of wood it is but it seems a bit soft. I tuned it up a bit with some TLC and sanding. Looks good now. I also modified the tip. It’s not quite a panga, not quite a cutlass, but something in between. Now the balance, weight, and handling is what I wanted. Took some work but I think I finally own my ideal machete.
