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 ^^

24" of lethal 1055 steel....
...the brush in my yard is toast; help the poor soul that enters to cause harm...this is 24 inches of pure 1055 lethal steel with steel reinforced knuckle bow guard...I honed the edge just a touch, added a loop of paracord ..balance is about 6" in front of handle, but adds chopping power being a little blade heavy...this is a workhorse ! '30 bucks'...a no brainer... must also mention great folks at Knife Center; thanks.....

Pros: Materials, Handle Material, Blade Material, Finish, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, None
You really need to own this blade. It is too blade heavy for my ancient fighting arm but that is corrected below. The blade is strong and mine is convex sharpened. An edge that will last for a long time if you know how to sharpen convex edges. The same edge that Japanese blade makers use. Take the time, it is worth every hour of practice and the new skill will increase your knowledge of blade edges. Because the blade is tip heavy, I plan to take mine to a machine shop and have the blade cut to 18". I will then have them apply a tanto tip at a 45 degree angle. I will then have the machinist put a thirty degree inclusive, 15 degrees per side, edge on the blade. It will then fit into a GI plastic machete sheath at maximum length. I love these sheaths for machetes. Just cut to length. I will let you know how this turns out.
