My old one finally gave up the ghost. Given it was near 40 years old. My buddy gave me his Cold Steel Kukri Machete and after a little cleaning and sharpening..
I AM IN LOVE. Cuts 3" hardwood limbs and scrub pines like butter. Handle is alittle rough on the hands. Could stand alittle grip tape to soften the plastic texture.
So after a good day of chopping,hacking, and lopping I give it a thumbs up. The sheath being only nylon is just eh' so so..
