I'm not crying
As a life long camper and woodsman, I'm pretty familiar with the Marbles brand. I saw this item and figured that I would spend a few bucks and test out the quality. The price was great, the performance was great and yeah, the handle is big for my hands. For the price paid, I think I can spend a few minutes with a sanding block to get it to fit right. after a recent storm I used it to clear brush and chop green limbs from fallen branches up to 1.5in. thick. Worked well and kept its edge after an hours clearing/chopping. All that was needed was 2 strokes on the sharpening stone and it was ready to go again. That being said, I did not care for the sheath. It does not cover the blade completely and the closure snap is misplaced. I have a feeling though that the reason the price is so good has to do with the likelihood of it being a second. Again, for the price, I cannot complain and I have been abusing the camp cleaver since it arrived last month with little to no problems. Great product and I'll be ordering another as a backup.
