good heavy duty machete
heavy duty, nice convex grind edge took minimal touch up to get really sharp. Might be just a tad heavier than it needs to be.I carry it in my vehicle for emergencies and camping use, where it's shortness is a virtue. Splits kindling quite well. Pretty good for chopping brush and small trees. Not ideal for light grass/vine hacking and trail clearing, as it is too heavy, short, and slow to swing, at least for me.I agree that sheath could be better. Do not expect it to last as long as the machete.Overall, great for what I needed. Good price, too.
