Rated 1 out of 5Â by john A POOR PURCHASE.
The store associate told me how sharp this product was and to be careful. NOT!!!!
This product of poor quality steel that would rarely hold an edge was pitiful.The back of the blade was sharper than the cutting edge. Nail scissors would do a better job. You get what you pay for and the return guy told me that they get a lot of returns on this product.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by apd09 great for light yard work
Received this as a gift at Christmas. It works for what I need it for, clearing some light shrubbery, and some tree branches about 2-3 inches in diameter. The edge on mine is sharp after using it a couple of times, though I assume eventually I will need to sharpen it again.
My biggest complaint is the fact that a sheath is not included, nor does Home Depot sell one. For Safety sake, when you are clearing the brush you end up needing to put the machete on the ground so you can use your hands to pick things up, I would feel better putting it in a sheath rather than just throwing a 22inch blade on the ground.
Only other con is that it is a little light weight, and does not feel very sturdy. There is a lot of wobble in the blade at the handle, so the metal is not very thick on the blade. But again, for light yard-work it serves its purpose, however I would not want to be using this in the rain-forest.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by MacheteHead GOOD DEAL FOR IT'S PRICE.
I'am Panamanian, and as a Panamanian i grew up around lots of different brands of Machetes, it is part of my culture and a machete is a very important tool in our home,
sometimes is not so much the Machete but the person using it,
i got this Machete and it has chipped in many places and that is because i have abused it, i have run this Machete to the ground and i'am surprise it even still around. Machetes are best for cutting tall grass not for chopping down trees and so on,
if you want to chop a tree get an Ax or a Chain Saw.
i will be buying another one as soon as i finish running this one to the grown, i mean i really abuse this one.
and i have gotten every penny i paid out out of it.
i don't think that for the price i will find a better machete, i know of many other brands of Machetes and where to get them but i'am comfortable with the price of this one...

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Stretch Good for light brush and vines.
After taking a file and wet stone to the blade it works great. My only gripe is the handles shape and size, longer would be better for larger hands. A value for the money and I have gotten more than my moneys worth out of it.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Ralph Does the job for a while...
This product is really used for small shrubbery. I wouldn't use it for anything other than that. It dents easily, is flimsy, but works. My dad has a different machete and I think his is a much higher quality. He has had it for years. And I have only had this for a couple of weeks and mine looks a lot more worn....I only used it twice.
