Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Materials, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Good Worker (for the right material)
I bought this model to use for home defense as well as for clearing non-wood brush from my home/campsite/etc....It is light in weight, and I like that. Combined with my Glock folding shovel, Glock battle knife and this machete, I feel I have the ultimate car/truck kit, in case I am ever stuck or broke-down in the middle of nowhere. I feel the construction of this machete lends itself to light work, and except for the saw spine, I will not be using it on wood, any thicker than 1/2 inch. I have not cut anything with it yet, but the blade seems very sharp, and the tines of the saw seem more than adequate for their intended purpose.
