Impressed to say the least
So I just got my cs cutlass machete in the mail a couple days ago and right out of the box, I fell in love. The sharpness is amazing, though there was a bit of burr on the edge. But a little time with a whetstone takes care of that. I was impressed by how little energy it took fo it to cleave a water bottle clean in half. I have had other products do the same, so, I thought I'd up thet ante. I grabbed a spare gallon water jug from my stockpile to see if the new acquisition could tackle this obstacle. First swing just knocked it over but made a cut... second swing, I used both hands (since I'm a smaller guy). The cutlass went clean through and I was absolutely floored. My only concerns was that the scabbard leaves just a bit to be desired and the handle material can get slippery. But that was a quick fix with some gause tape I bought at cvs... great job, Cold Steel and many thanks to knife center! I'll definitely be shopping more from y'all!

Pros: Weight, Handle Material, Overall Quality
Cons: None
I bought this because I lacked a sword like this. and since I was buying the cold steel Gladius I might as well throw this in. I didn't know what I was missing. This thing chops better than any machete. I can chop down a whole banana tree in one stroke. and it stabs and the hand guard makes a good brass knuckle. I really like the way this feels it is a great weapon and a great tool. so useful Feels like it was made for me maybe I was a pirate in the past. Might be my new favorite sword.

I can finally be a pirate... XD
Ah... Perfection ^^ I put my blades through a lot of work in the forests surrounding where i live, and this newest addition performs most admirably. Came sharp out of the box, went over it a few times with a DMT diafold diamond sharpener to hone the edge a bit; cuts like a razor :) after trying it out, mostly on deadwood and thick branches; i'm thoroughly impressed with how it performs. I expected some wobbliness but it doesn't shake at all, real sturdy piece of steel (^_^) No real damage to it so far (except a very small chip where i missed a tree and hit a rock :p.... You should see the rock, actually gave it a small gash O_O) Final word though: pay attention to how you swing it. I've noticed it won't cut as effectively if you swing it like a heavy duty chopper ^^
