New Machete

the_monk(7B)April 21, 2010

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..
