Hands down the best machete You will find, far more valuable than $28!
Ken Hamilton –
I use my machete for land surveying, cutting trees, removing limbs, and working threw greenbrier i have tried Cold Steel Trimontina, and colman.
The 3MM thickness of the blade is a real advantage over the thinner blades. The High carbon steel takes a great edge. (i use a 600&1200 diamond plate.) Additionally the plastic sheath is great.
One colleague of mine had a bad experience with the saw back version of this blade, the general concision is the notching reduced the structural integrity, and the saw was never that useful.
