Bought Harbor FREIGHT MACHETE first and regretted it. Don't make my mistake!

This machete does NOT bend or flex when hitting something forcefully, like the cheaper machetes.

It keeps an edge and mine did come sharp! Cut an inch sucker off a tree like it was BUTTER! No kidding! Very little effort!

Save money, save time, save your hands, BUY this one.
I like the protection and better grip this machete offers. Plus I hope its easier to find in the brush 'cause sooner or later I know I'll lay it down for a moment. I am not real experienced sharpening machetes and I don't have it where I want it yet - learning how slowly and with experimentation. Its much much better than a cheapo soft machete I got from a garage sale and a softer 1055 steel machete I have. But I almost wish Ontario didn't grind any bevel on the edge, or made it steeper to make it easier to work it into a convex edge. I'm concerned that it almost seems the hardening isn't uniform along the edge as I can get the edge near the handle quite sharp but having trouble with the blade about 2-3 inches before the upsweep - seems a little softer there - and that's the part that sees much of the work. Only had it 1.5 months and haven't worked it hard so middle rating for now. UPDATE 8-2-15 I have come to appreciate this the more I've used it. At first I thought I... Read more
The overall build and quality of this Machete is very good. In spite of several reviews that say that it comes un-sharpened, mine came sharpened. I intentionally purchased this Machete because of the thickness of the blade. It is certainly thicker than most other Machetes, and is balanced a bit heavier at the tip. The steel grade/quality is the best there is.

This Machete is just plain heavy. If you just want to whack a few branches, it does a fantastic job. However, if you need to use it to cut a path through heavy foliage, and you are going to be swinging it for several hours, this Machete becomes very heavy.
