1. QEONIX Steel 9733 80PGTK Carbon

QEONIX Steel 9733 80PGTK Carbon

Quality and customer satisfaction are their top priorities. They will replace or process a refunds if you are not thrilled. The Tactical knife has a seven-inch Tanto point blade. 1055 carbon steel blade has a hard spring temper and black rust- resistant finish. The scales have a guard and handle. Can become a war club. Heavy, balanced throws are easy to throw.

Brand: Qeonix

👤I have been using this bush knife for almost six months. This knife is serious and will take a beating, but it will retain a nice edge. It's made of carbon spring steel, so you can't tear it up. It's a hardened blade. I wouldn't be batoning concrete. The only complaint I had was that the upper spur had to be removed. It feels more functional and comfortable now that it's removed and still locks in the Kydex sheath with the bottom spur. It's not like cutting a $300 knife up, but you're not scared to use or abuse it, so you can mod it to make it your own. I put a tekLok to the back of my car to clip onto my tac belt. If I ever had to purchase again, I would. I don't think that's going to happen. Unless you remove the spur, it's not very pleasant.

👤My first cold steel product was definitely not my last. The deal should be sealed right away, but it's not the only selling point. The Kydex-like sheath is perfect, and the grommets are perfect for lashing the sheath to the MOLLE webbing with some 550 cord, as I've done on my plate carrier. The knuckle grooves are perfect for my hands, even though the handles are not a wrench. There's a finger notch behind the blade to make it easier to grip the knife. The baked on finish is excellent. The blade grind and overall size of the knife are the only negatives. If you're looking for a tactical knife, it's kind of overkill because it's 12 inches long. I like it. 2. The blade is 7 inches. The edge of the hilt is only 5 1/2 inches from the middle to the tip. If you want a big tactical knife to wow your buddies, split wood, carry into battle, or throw Benjamin Martin style, just buy it. You can't go wrong with cold steel.

👤Cold Steel's quality control is non-existent, I really like the design, but it's not good. One of the knives cracked in half after it was chipped multiple times on the blade, and I purchased 2 of them. Why isn't this bending instead of snapping in half, if it's supposed to be machete steel? They are not heating the steel properly, or else they would hold up better. Cold Steel is not as strong as the knives that I have had from Gerber. I don't think they have the resources to have accurate quality control, possibly because of the worldwide sales growing. All the metal/steel weapons I have purchased are shotty and worse than a gas station knife. The steel isn't treated correctly. Their sales techniques are lies. The G.I. is thrown. In the video for it, Tanto talks about how well balanced it is for throwing, then void the warranty because they said you can't throw it. Cold Steel is a flea market company. It's a nice knife for the money if it's made correctly. If you get a dud, you're done because they don't have a warranty. My friend was denied a warranty because he bought the knife through Amazon. It's unbelievable.

2. Ontario Knife Company 8689 Survival

Ontario Knife Company 8689 Survival

The nylon sheath is included. The overall length is 15.0".

Brand: Ontario Knife Company

👤I discovered this product while watching David Pearson's channel. He is an experienced woodsman who has reviewed many large knives and machetes. Pearson has stated on several occasions that the Ontario Knife Company is his all-time favorite machete. He is probably right based on my experiences with this OKC. The lifetime warranty on the SP-53 is American. It is a very sturdy machete-knife. The knife is 4.5 ounces. 6 ounces is the weight of the empty sheath. The knife and sheath weigh 1 pound. The blade is 1-1/8" to 2-1/4" wide and has a powder-coated finish. It is a brutal, saber-ground, weight-forward, and perfectly brutal. The black Kraton handle has a palm swell which is comfortable for my large hands, as well as a deep finger-guard to prevent forward slippage, and a lanyard hole. The nylon sheath has two front blade-retention snaps. It had two top and two bottom metal eyelets and a black nylon cord. The sheath is nothing special, but it holds the blade securely. I tested the SP-53 while camping and it did well. Hot-spots, rolled edges, and chips are not allowed to be handled after days of use. It remained sharp. The method of using a baton to split sawn timber up to 6 inches in diameter is both safer and less tiring than using an ax. My camping kit now has a permanent spot for my OKCSP 53. It combines with a Silky Gomboy folding saw and a Mora Garberg fixed blade knife to meet all of my wood processing needs when camping.

👤I bought this because of a video. I have always had good luck with Ontario knives, thanks to his videos. I get more bang for my buck with Ontario. The Rat II was recommended to me by Nutnfancy. I use it for "batonning" cut wood. I can use the SP53 for this purpose. The knife company doesn't break the bank every time you need a new knife.

👤Well ground, reliable. It was made in America. If the shop floor is incompetent, then made in America is meaningless. The people on the Ontario shop floor know what they are doing and they do it well. I can't say that about any other Made in America knife manufacturers. I wish that wasn't the case. You don't need to re-profile this knife. Just use it. I enjoy that a lot. I use this blade when limbing conifers, which encourage flame to leave the ground and get into the trees. The ladder stock is ready for the chipper if one swat and a branch is severed. I chainsaw the main branch and send it to the chipper. The steel does not chip. The handle is very strong. The center of mass is in the middle of the belly. The Ontario SP 53 is the best. The Kabar Cutlass Machete sheath is ideal for quick tool access in the woods. I prefer the Kabar sheath over the Ontario sheath because it is more convenient. I use this blade to make kindling and split wood stove fuel. It is used a lot. I gave the SP53 5 stars, and I mean every one of them. Good job Ontario.

3. Schrade SCHF45 Outdoor Survival Camping

Schrade SCHF45 Outdoor Survival Camping

The Kraton G handle is comfortable in the hand. The overall length is 41.9 cm and the blade length is 26.3 cm. It isdurable: The blade is made of reliable 8Cr13MoV. High carbon steel with black handles. It's permissible. The black belt sheath is convenient and easy to use. The blade will not slip with the security of the finger guard, choil and grooves. A lanyard hole and a full tang design make the knife very dangerous.

Brand: Schrade

👤I received this today. I hacked off two limbs from a tree that was laying on my rain gutter. The limbs are about 1 inch thick. The first chip was put in the blade by those two limbs. I batoned 2 dry logs that were close to it and were about 24 inches long and 4.5 to 5 inches thick. The blade was destroyed by that. There were pits, chips and curls all over the place. After 5 minutes of light and moderate use the blade needed sharpening. 10 more minutes of moderate use would not have made a difference. Maybe I got a lemon. The one I received is not clean. I have a mossy oak Bowie with a crappy loose handle that performs 10 times better than blade quality. Garbage blade. I don't know if it's worth spending money to get it back, just hope to get one of the good ones. Everything else was great. I like the sheath. The knife comes out easily if you push the spine of the handle towards the edge of the sheath. Quality control must be an issue for that blade. I'll try Ontario to see if it's any better. My Ontario rat 1 can cut weeds and retain and edge. It's a rant ovet.

👤Over 6 months, pictures are sharpened a few times. This is a great knife for money. I have a lot of different blades. I'm not a brand snob, but I am picky. One of the only knives under 50 dollars that I would take on a backpacking trip is this knife. It looks cooler than a Camp 10, and feels more sturdy. The sheath is not the best, but it is not the worst. The style sheath that comes with the Condor Boomslang has lashing options. For big knives that I want to beat the snot out of, I don't mind it, as long as it's made of steel. I'd rather sharpen it than deal with a chip. It has an edge that is pretty well held. It will be as good or better than the steel they're using right now. It's nice to have the finger on the handle. If you want a big chopper and haven't owned a GSO 10, you'll probably like this knife. It's my favorite large chopper at the moment.

👤For the money, you get a good workhorse of a bowie that will give you confidence strapped to your hip, or even defend your honor in a post- apocalyptic saloon. The blade steel is sub par, but Shrade heat treated it and shaped it to make it more resistant than I was expecting. It takes a good shaving sharp edge and a field sharpener to hold it up. I spent the last month making the daily fire at my job with this beast and got nothing but praise and requests to try it. I split 6 inches of logs and powered through knots with confidence. The blade is cheap and you don't have to worry about it breaking because you can buy a new one. It's not a custom bowie. I wouldn't say it's the best blade I've ever owned, but it's worth the money. And then some. 10 out of 10 is how the tool is described. In most seasons, I would make this my one blade option. It's weight and geometry are used in the game. I wouldn't want to try it, but the minimal hand guard/quillon/choil near the pointer finger is enough to catch a blade. It's balance, point, cleaving ability, and all other factors make it a great "Modern Tactical" bowie that would certainly be sufficient to save your skin on a dark and stormy night. I would feel pretty confident if something went wrong in the night. I made the base of the fire from a single log and a baton, and I used nothing but Schrade and a baton to process the wood. The fire steel was struck off the Schrade Leroy and produced good sparks that started my charcloth on the first try.

4. Smith Wesson SWMP13BS Liner Folding

Smith Wesson SWMP13BS Liner Folding

The knife has a ferro rod, sharpening stone and a lanyard hole. The overall length is 20.9 cm and the blade length is 3.5 inches. It isdurable: The blade is made of reliable 8Cr13MoV. A black and tan aluminum handle is made of black oxide high carbon steel. It's permissible. It's ideal for everyday carry because of its convenient pocket clip, finger flipper and ambidextrous thumb knobs. The liner lock and finger guard will keep the blade from slipping.

Brand: Smith & Wesson

👤I love my Border Guard by Smith & Wesson. I needed something lighter, more compact and versatile, because the border guard is bulky and heavy, and it is a hassle having it as my EDC. I looked for a replacement for my knife for a long time. I have been using the brand that served me well for years and I am not disappointed, it is a great looking knife and it came razor sharp.

👤The ergonomics of the lock feature make it the best pocket knife I've ever owned.

👤A good knife. I have owned knives from both Smith and Wesson and the quality is better than that of Kershaw. The fast back open feature is on the weak side and only draws back that I have about this knife. If you push the lever, the knife doesn't open up all the way. Not a complete deal breaker, all you need to do is snap your wrist and it will open up. We will see how it holds up.

👤The knife has a finger switch that you can use to open it, but it isn't assisted open as I thought it was, and with a little practice you can open it in critical situations. The knife is comfortable to hold and carry. As a sharpener, run it through a couple of times. You get a lot of money.

👤It is very sharp out of the box. It's great for carrying everyday, and I loosened the screw to make it easier to unfold. There are better ones with better locking mechanisms, but those are several times the price of this one.

👤The blade could be .5 inches longer. The knife is great.

👤I'm not a knife expert, but this is a great knife for the price. I will probably buy it again.

👤The clip is the only thing I don't love about the knife. I like to be on the other side. I'm a happy camper.

👤Them ist scharf.

Brand: Gerber Gear

👤I bought this knife because of the good reviews, but I was wrong to think it was a USA made product, it is engineered and designed in China, and I am going to rethink all my purchases. The knife is strong, has a good grip, but could have been sharper, but it is ok. There is a whistle on the lanyard and a fire starter rod that is on the back of the blade that makes sparks. I wish the descriptions pointed out that it was made in China.

👤The Bear Grylls Ultimate Survival has taken a lot of abuse over the years. It is one of my favorite economic knives. I was looking for a spare since it was discontinued, and luckily the non-advertised version came out from Gerber. It came with a great color. See the pictures. I recommend this product for hikers who need a good economic knife.

👤I read and watched many video reviews before buying this knife. A lot of people don't like the fact that this knife is made in China. Most of the things they own are made in China. I don't think so. The craftsmanship of this knife is not as good as that of a handmade $200+ knife, but it is a pretty good knife. It is tough as nails and holds an edge. Whatever you throw at it, it can handle it. I keep it in my emergency kit when it's not in use. Fire and earthquakes are the biggest natural disaster risks in my area. I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for a heavy duty knife.

👤The knife has been good. Within the first few uses, the firestarter broke. I returned the fire starter to the store. I haven't received the replacement or a response. Terrible customer service.

👤I just got a knife and I like it. This is the same as the Ultimate Knife but without all the markings. The subdued colors of this one make it much more appealing to me, even though I like the Bear Grylls style in general. The nuts and bolts are sturdy and you can feel it right away. The flint won't fall out if it hangs upside-down, and it snaps right into a sockets on the front of the sheath. It snaps firmly into place, but it's not easy to remove. It's much easier to pry loose the flint on my official Bear Grylls Ultimate Pro than it is to use the knife blade. The sheath can be worn vertically or horozontally. The sheath has a sharpening stone under it and can be opened with a strap. Since this isn't a Bear Grylls item, it's expected that this knife doesn't have a pocket in the sheath to hold it. Even though I haven't taken this knife out into the woods yet, I will not hesitate to rely on it for my needs when they arise. This knife is also available under a different listing with a custom engraving on the blade. I went with the original because I wanted the free prime shipping, but both knives are the same price.

Brand: Nooraki

👤The shieths clasp is across the handle instead of vertically, and I have a knife with no serrated back. They made this design even better for the blade. It's not a full tang, but it's very durable. This knife is very good for days.

7. SOG Tactical Survival Hunting E37T K

Brand: Sog

👤The box was well made. It was a good fit for the knife and sheath. The edge grind was not perfect, but it was good to go. My sheath was the kydex. The knife is not too tight with the snap. I wore it for a day with the belt attachment, then began looking for an alternative. The lump under my belt was not comfortable when folded over in the high ride position. I was disappointed to find that the mounting holes didn't line up for a small t-Lok, my molle attachment, or any of the belt clips/attachment hardware from my sheaths. I found the belt attachment on my holster to fit. I swapped to those and now everything is fine. You would be hard pressed to find a better knife for the money. If you're willing to do a little work yourself, you can get a good tool.

👤The blade is not equal for a mass production survival knife. Don't be fooled by the cheap mainland China knives that are cast, not forged, and have a thin easily broken handle section. The knife is made in Taiwan, which is almost as old as Japan, which was making deadly blades for a thousand years before Western Europe. Are you going into the field? Take this blade!

👤My own sheaths include 12 & 1/4", 10, and 9 knives, with a belt loop and retainer plate. After months of searching for a lightweight, solid, fixed-blade for backpacking, I finally decided on the SOG Seal Pup Elite with Kydex Sheath, mainly for it's compact 9 & 3/8" overall length and an incredibly lightweight 5.7oz. I plan on lashing the knife to my pack because it fits securely in the sheath. I have removed the belt-loop and retainer plate from the sheath, leaving me with a total mounted weight of 7.0oz. Backpackers are happy! I was able to slice through paper without tearing it with my razor because it came sharp and sturdy. That is razor sharp in my book. The serrations cut me out of the box after little more than a light brush. I asked the reviewer if he had even handled the knife. It is not dull from the box. So what if it were? You wouldn't throw a knife away just because it dulled, because all knives need to be sharpened from time to time. You're not paying for a sharp blade, you're paying for a high quality blade that you keep sharp. You're getting proven steel with excellent edge holding capability with the Seal Pup Elite and it's AUS-8 steel specially treated by SOG. The edge has SOG's original design with plenty of belly, which distributes the workload along the long, sweeping edge. The blade starts at just under 3 inches thick, making it nearly impossible to break, and I've jammed the knife tip into hardwood over and over again, so far it's just fine. I've used it to chip down branches and firewood and the edge is still sharp. Thanks to the Titanium Nitride coating, I have not seen a spot of rust since I left it out in the night. Is it durable? Check. Solid feel in your hand, lightweight and durable. The Elite's handle is slightly longer with a curve around the pinky compared to the non-Elite version. It feels very maneuverable because the balance point is at the index finger. The texture molded into the Zytel is better shown in pictures than I could describe, but it still has an impressive grippiness to it. If you've never felt it before, you'll be amazed at how light and durable it is; it's incredibly hard, harder than any plastic I've ever dealt with, and still not brittle. They say it's a mix of nylon and fiberglass. Whatever it is, it is not negotiable. I don't use the Lanyard hole. Sheth. The Kydex sheath is made of three easily separable parts. The sheath is lighter and 888-282-0465 than any other sheath out there and perfect for backpacking. It can be mounted in almost any direction, and the knife locks in with no rattle. The sheath is molded around the knife and hilt, and the hilt is slightly away from the blade. Retention even when mounted tip-up with the retention strap removed is provided by the larger end of the hilt being able to pass through the sheath. There's no need to press a release mechanism, but it might shake loose under certain circumstances. I glue the expanding part of the case together to tighten the sheath's hold on the hilt. It's stable enough to run with confidence. There's a quick-access cord cutting slot in the sheath, but it's not very useful, so I'm saving that for the "Cons" section of the review. Go ELITE! It's worth the extra money for the Elite version of the Seal Pup, I had the chance to handle the standard version before making my final decision. It's nice to know that, should I ever need "notch" wood, I have better sheath, better handle, longer blade/ shorter choil, and spine rasp. They look cool, and as I'm writing this review, Amazon is selling this knife with the Kydex sheath for $73. This is an outstanding deal for what you're getting. There are limitations to limited hacking. A 5.7oz knife with a 5" blade is a great compromise where larger knives are too heavy and bulky to bring along, but with the saving in weight and length you also lose sheering and hacking ability. It is not practical to hack through branches thicker than 2 inches diameter or baton through logs thicker than 5 inches with the Seal Pup Elite. Hardcore survivalists might want something with a bit more length, but that's not what this is for. The handle of the Zytel is limited in its ability to hammer. The base of the knife was rounded off by SOG. If they had left it a bit flatter, it would have been up to the task, but as it stands, the rounded pommel doesn't strike hard enough. There is a thumb-ramp formed into the Zytel handle to prevent slippage when thrusting the blade, and it does have very slight grooves, but not The first 3/4" of the spine isn't rasped, which makes sense to me as it would be perfect jimping if you were to ride your thumb high. The thumb ramp under actual use is not a problem because there's enough texture and finger grooving in the Zytel handle. Sheth. The sheath is in the Pros section, but it has flaws. Kydex is said to be a top of the line sheath material. The sheath is still better than the nylon one, but it's cheap. It's a sheet of plastic that has been heated and folded around a mold, riveted together. If you don't insert the knife straight in, it'll get stuck on the way in, which is why it's developed a catching point inside. The retainer plate in the middle of the belt loop is different from the screw points in the belt loop. I don't plan on using either of them, but you might want to know. The rope cutter is a joke. You have to pull hard since you don't get the slicing you would otherwise get if you just used the knife, but think about it: when is it going to be quicker to un-lash the sheath from your gear, just to cut a cord? I have never gotten it caught on anything, but I'm still afraid it's a liability. It's all done. I think this is a great lightweight backpacking knife.

👤The steel used was the only thing that was different about this knife. I bought this knife for my AT section hike. It has a great grip, a nice sheath, a built-in line cutter, and a sharpener. Give it five stars and be done with it. The steel used for this knife is probably A. This steel does not hold an edge for very long. It is a good value for this price point. There are better steels for a survival blade. It is a nice little rig. I decided to use a D2 steel knife and a swiss firestarting rod.

👤Great product. I have not used the knife yet, but if it breaks I will update this review, otherwise it is what I think. The knife feels very solid, good weight, the blade is solid, a slight bit wider than I thought, but not really a flaw, the handle is a little soft and tacky, and the rubber feels durable. Even when wet, you get a really good grip. I can pinch it just where the blade meets the handle, and it has a good overall length to control it, and it is well balanced. The nylon belt loop is thick and nice and the sheath feels very durable. The fire starter works, it is mounted upside down on the sheath, but it takes a bit of effort to pull it out, so I don't see it falling out. I can't say over time. It would have been nice if the sheath had spaces on the side to strap it onto a backpack. The nylon belt loop is screwed onto the back of the sheath, so I might try to rig something up. The sharpening stone on the back is coarse for my liking, I would have preferred something a bit more fine to just put back an edge. I think it is a great knife for the price.

👤I tested the knife in the field, cutting, carving, and chopping, and it has stood up to the abuse. The knife is tough because of the softer steel and it will not chip if you chop hard woods or drop it on a rock. It can besharpened on the included diamond plate once the edge is rolled or dulled. You can get a shaving edge on it in minutes, which is an advantage over harder steel knives. The pummel was damaged from hitting slay rock but is still usable. The fire steel started a fire for me in seconds using brush, dried grass and all I could find in the forest around me, so it definitely works. This knife is a cheaper version of the Ultimate Pro knife, but it is still very strong. If you want a cheap knife to take out to camp or hunting, with a nice sheath and fire steel all in one package, this is the knife for you. It does the job for $35, thats a meal for 2 in a restaurant.

👤This knife is a great buy. It is similar to the Prodigy. Another budget knife is added to the collection. I have a lot of expensive knives, but they aren't that expensive. I decided to remove the paracord with the clip on the sheath to make my hack.

9. Schrade SCHPR1CP Parang Full Machete

Schrade SCHPR1CP Parang Full Machete

The overall length is 49.8 cm and the blade length is 34.8 cm. It isdurable: The blade is made of 3Cr13 S.S. and has a black handle. It's permissible. It's ideal for everyday carry because of its convenient sheath with shoulder strap, leg strap and belt loop. The blade will not slip with the security of the handle. A lanyard hole and hollow grind make the knife safe to use.

Brand: Schrade

👤I've been cutting with machetes and cane knives for over 50 years. I own close to a dozen so I have a good baseline to critique this parang. The days of $15.00 Malaysian parangs are over due to the popularity of Ray Mears. I picked up this Schrade parang for under $30 and it is worth every penny. The steel is easy to keep an edge on. The Latin machete has a heavy balance and is thin, making it easier to chop. I like that the sheath with the shoulder strap and leg strap makes hiking with this knife very comfortable, and that it has a full tang. I highly recommend it, it's my new favorite mountain trekking machete.

👤I haven't been able to kill it. It's not bright. A piece of steel. I like this parang for its heavier brush, but I would probably use a thinner blade for my lighter tasks. This parang is great for clearing trash trees that are too heavy for my Tramontina blades. I use this parang instead of an axe for most things here in Hawaii. The blade is easy to resharpen and the handle is comfortable. When I'm too lazy to walk back to the house to get my shovel, I use it to dig holes on my property. I decided to use this blade to dig out the old ohia tree stump. I wanted to see how the steel would hold up against Ohia wood. I turned the blade to put stress on the edge, and bashed it a lot. The blade edge was fine at the end of the chopping session. The blade is one of the best bargains on Amazon. The Schrade barong is labeled as a bolo, but it is more expensive than the Schrade parang, which can do the same jobs. There are no issues with the blade. I've come to appreciate the fact that this bush knife is made of steel. I haven't oiled it or cleaned it. I have to sand and spray paint my carbon steel blades before I put them away. The 3Cr steel in this parang is very resistant to staining and rusting.

👤If you want big limbs and small trees, this is the one. This is only a small piece of metal, which I usually describe as a "hammer", but it's not. I'm pretty sure it won't break when you take it from a limb. If far from perfect is this "hollow grind"? The knife is the same as jeans. It will take you days/weeks/ months to correct them eating out a large chunk of your blade. The metal is strong. I have had modern Asian STAINLESS STEEL produce rust spots, so it's hard to say I'm a true scuplture of it. At this point, I don't really care about the word "ss". I find myself thinking about buying a second one as they tend to double in price once their value is known. The metal is good, the sheath is good, and anyone who thought a shoulder carry was a good idea has watched too many grade B action movies. The balance is perfect, it sits in my hand at any angle. I've used it on bamboo and it's fine, but the thickness makes it a bit reluctant to slice it like butter. Stick with 1/6th for Ontario or Marbles. I only use what works for me because I have a blown right bicep.

👤Wanted one of these. I finally got to tell you, I was without it for too long. It does everything. It chops it. It is on the heavy side but it is not noticeable in the sheath on your belt. It will cut a small tree in half. I have used it as a spatula and a tool for stirring the fire, but it has no give. It has a decent edge and takes very little work to make it better. I wouldn't replace my belt knife for it because it's a little bulky for more intricate jobs. Would recommend it to others.

👤This is a machete for trees and bushes. It can be used as an ax. My skinny hands and wrists are not strong enough to put this puppy to the test, but the more I use it, the stronger I get. I have that goin' for you.

👤I have been wanting a machete for a long time. I was able to get my hands on it. The blade finish and function is outstanding. It is a heavy chopping beast. I cut a 1” limb like butter. I tried my hand at making curls. This thing works. I grabbed a few rounds from the wood pile. I think they were either walnuts or Locust. Put the blade in the middle. Might have been using my axe. This cut through. The sheath is disappointing. The mole is on the back of the new version. The original version has an extra pocket on the front. I'm going to try and sell it as a option. This is going to be a great tool for around the house and for camping.

👤I've used an Ontario fixed blade knife for over 20 years and it has held up well. The machete is the same quality. It was very strong. It came fairly dull, that's my only gripe. If they were facing the other way, the saw teeth would be better used. The saw teeth on the back of the blade are so thick that it is hard to push away from you and still push hard enough to see anything. I bought it for its ability to pry/chopping, not as a saw. It's a good item for money.

👤He is mediocre. It is okay for the price. The center of the grind was the apex. On one side, the grind was higher. The blade was larger on one side. The quality control was terrible. The edge had to be reprofiled. The saw back isn't very good. I have seen better. I would only use it to make a basic notch. Use your money to buy other products that have better quality control. Save and buy a better brand. You can save money by buying a good hatchet. I wouldn't buy this again. I wouldn't give it away.

👤This thing is a beast and lives up to everything you say. It's not a big deal because OKC has started using nylon sheaths instead of the nice leather sheath they used to ship it with. It's still worth every penny.

👤This machete is the worst one you could ever use as a land surveyor. The machete is around 4-5 pounds and feels like you are swinging a log splitting axe all day. The handle is not fat enough, it is not aggressive for constant use, and it tears your hand a new one, and it is very thin and easy to roll. If you are doing a lot of cutting in rural areas, I do not recommend this machete. It is sharp. There is nothing else to this thing.

👤It was easy to handle. The tip broke after about a month of use.

👤Maybe not. I feel like him when I hold the Luna Tech machete. I have a sheath over my back. Over the years, I have used a lot of machetes to trim and cut mangroves on our Southwest Florida property. The Luna Tech model is shown along with three of my favorites. From the left you can see the Esee lite, the cold steel 97DEM, and The Luna Tech. The machetes are about 23" long. The Esee and Cold Steel weigh about 18 and 26 ounces, respectively. The company website is still under construction and there is no information currently published about this machete. The Cold Steel is.0625", the Esee lite is.075", the Condor is.089", and the Luna Tech is.14". The cold steel used in the Esee is 1055 carbon, while the Luna Tech is 440stainless steel. The prices on these four items are very interesting. The Cold Steel model has been discontinued and is no longer available. The Luna Tech is currently priced in Canada at $238.00 Canadian. What do you get for a machete that costs three times as much as the Esee and Condor? You get a large, heavy multi-purpose tool that gives you a lot of options in a survival situation. The blade is long and wide, has a wood saw on top of it, and has a rope cutter on the top and bottom. I was very cautious with everything that came out. If I dropped it on my feet, the blade would go through my foot. I've never felt that way about machetes. This machete is large. I have had rotator cuff surgery on both of my shoulders, but I can use my favorites all day. The Luna Tech would eventually cause me to put it down. This beast really does the job when I use it. The blades of my favorites are very efficient at cutting smaller plants and branches. It only takes a few swings to handle even more difficult jobs, because you can maintain a sharp blade and use a full slicing motion. That is important because of my advanced age. The Luna Tech surprised me that it could cause a lot of damage to large tree limbs. The swing's weight, sharpness and speed are all factors. It wouldn't work on smaller branches if you didn't cut them closer to the tree's trunk. If you tried to cut it elsewhere along its length, the branches would bend and spring back. I was able to cut through various types of wood that were over 4 inches thick with one blow, thanks to the Luna Tech. It creates so much slicing power that you have to be aware of any obstacles that might cause a glancing blow or cause you to cut yourself with your follow-through. This machete would cause a lot of damage if it was accidentally cut. Handle and use it with respect. If I had to take only two blades with me, one would be the Esee lite and the other the Luna Tech monster. The Esee can handle most of the heavy work while the Luna can cut almost anything. The Luna Tech is the obvious choice if I could only take one.
