Customer Reviews

A serious machete at a serious price. I love it

There are machetes and then there are MACHETES. This blade comes very sharp and it will cut about anything you put in its path. It will also saw wood and the heft it provides makes cutting through things easier. As for using it for camping and cutting brush and small branches and clearing snow in winter the it makes all that work much easier and quicker.
Came sharpened to an excellent 20 degree bevel

A machete doesn't have to be fancy to do a job, just tough, and I mean tough. It's main job is a brute chore, no bells and whistles. This US Army machete came sharpened with an excellent 20 degree bevel. This sharpened to the haft edge of the tool which makes for an effective and strong working edge. The cutting portion was a full half inch thick at the end and one inch in the middle. So I cut it off and installed a sharpened one.
Very solid and sharp!

This came extremely sharp, and in my first hour or so using it, I got all the blades shaving sharp. The edge came fairly sharp out of the box, and then I added my sharpening touch to it. This feels like it's going to last a lifetime, but of course that remains to be seen. It's also very durable, and it feels like a great balance of sturdiness and flexibility.
Quality product and great price

The machete came with no issues, was sharp out of the box and the product has a good weight to it, seems to be quality. For some of the people that are commenting about the saw on the side, its there if you need it. 10/10, great value.
No saw. Not so good for tough roots.

Blade is good, but for bamboo, it's not so good. Handle can break. Good buy, worth it.
Great blade. You can really hack with this. It’s not razor sharp but if you know how to sharpen blades you will love this knife

Wow. This is a big hunk of steel. This is really a nice camp knife and ax. You can really cut with this. A small improvement would be a sheath with a sharpener on it but other than that you really can do anything you want with this hunk of steel. It is well built and solid as can be. This machete feels like it will outlive you. I really like this thing and I think that if your in the outback you will too. If you want a tool you can depend on to really do the job and last your lifetime this machete would be my first recommendation. Great tool.
Sharp as heck, does what it says it will do

Very sharp machete, no regrets buying this.
Well made tool, hard to find steel.

The steel used in this machete seems well chosen for its use. While hard enough to hold an edge it's also easy to sharpen. And you will need to do that regularly, but don't forget to keep the edge lubricated, this steel will rust. While the hardness makes it hold an edge, the thickness will also lead to breakage if you overload it with a project beyond its ability. The grip is okay but not great. The handles are made of hard rubber, that may feel good when your hands are dry but it will be uncomfortable when wet. My gripe with the knife's geometry is that the grip area of the blade seems a bit short. When the full length of the grip was needed it feels like the only part of the blade to which I have contact is the guard, with the end of the grip near the tip, when cutting small branches. That isn't really the fault of the design, it's a fault of my smallish hands. It will fit a couple of fingers around the end of the grip when the knife is being held vertically. If the grip were a bit longer, or wider it would give a much better feeling. But for its intended purpose it is hard to find a better tool. I've used many in a quest to replace the 20 lb backpack machete/hatchet combination. This is hard to beat for the weight. The edge is good for the thickness, hard to ruin if you overload it, while still allowing you to finish your work day with an edge that will finish the task. But I will be keeping my multi tool machete/hatchet combination.
Great all-around tool for all camping/outdoor needs

Great, well made product, works perfectly for clearing small underbrush. Great all-around tool for all camping/outdoor needs. Also can serve as an effective short distance hatchet/axe.
Nice steel
Review by Keepshooting Customer

It arrived very sharp but be careful when using a file or stones to get the edge. My other OKC machete's steel is better. The knife I had it's was about as bad as I had ever seen for an old steel, but the other I used to do all kinds of camp work was very good and very sharp. I have several Ontario knives and I think their other machete's will out cut this but it has very nice quality.
