Combat Machete
This is my second one of these machete's i use it weekly in my yard and mainly on coconuts. The sheath is a little combersome and the blade can't handle real hard woods but you should probably be using something different for that anyway. I was a few months before I ordered another and I'm glad I have it back by my side.

Just on looks alone
When I found this online I just knew I had to have it! this is one serious piece of metal, looks great, heavy and is good enough just to hold and look at, using it for hard work is not really the high point of this knife. The handle is shaped wrong to give a real good grip, sure it is ok but I have pulled the handle of and was sort of disappointed the way that so called full tang is! I don't really care for the way the handle part is made hence I am going to redo the whole handle part, get some custom grips on it, and make it a real full tang knife. The sheath is solid and well made, but could be a bit big for some, I am 6'4' so it is fine but if you are shorter it might sort of look odd, again I am going to redo the sheath and make my own Kydex, and give the whole knife a better polish job. Overall a good product but not up to the standard of some other big usable knife I have, but I am sure it will be after the nods I make to it, I still give it a 5 out of 5 as it is a great looking knife.
