    Placed an order for a few different machetes. It got mixed up. Was fixed immediately by sending me out a missing item with no problems, along with a darn nice email. Great people. So rare to find actually nice people these days. I have been a customer for a few years and will stay here for sure.

    Had this laying around for a while. I cut the tip off, changing it from a Latin style it to a basic clip point. That shortened it about an inch, now it is great large butcher/camp knife. An 11 inch butcher knife for 12 bucks is hard to beat.

    The “red handled Mora knife” of machetes. Bargain-basement fire sale price point, but this is the one I bring bushwalking, despite having a sizeable edge tool collection. The “famous name brand” ones just don’t have what this has, which, specifically, is so many design variables all done right that it “just works”. Feather light, length not a liability, short enough to be practical, useable, and sensible , able to be made obscenely sharp. Doesn’t stick out the top of your backpack when in built-up civilian-dense areas. Used several coats of “Tung ‘N Teak”; I’d almost swear the handle is jatoba.

    I really like this little machete. Easy to sharpen, takes a good edge and holds that edge surprisingly well in use on green stuff and dry soft wood. Responds real well to a strop. Excellent performance for the price.
