    Nice and solid, be aware PoB is right at 10″. Factory grind is rough but very easy to finish. Plastic resin handle is solid enough, after hundreds of hard swings.

    Superb, light and sturdy, waiting to be sharpened to your own tastes. The Guarizama is more sword-like than other Imacasas, perhaps also a little more rigid but still quite flexible, with a very utilitarian tip that can be used for stab-cuts, pushing things out of the way, and root-cutting. As indifferent to neglect as a T-34 tank, the Guarizama has a handle that seems unlikely to fail before it’s filed down to a coach-whip. Obviously, it’s not small, not ultra-light, and not for the timid. Cannot wait to see how a couple of Virginian landscapers are going to incorporate them into their routines. They might take over entirely.

    Works well. Pretty too though thats not important when it comes to a hardworking tool. Only negative is i feel the blade might one day go flying off the grip, is it really full tang?
