A: 24 inches. Great experience.
A: Thank you for contacting Fiskars. The overall length of this product is 24", and the blade is 15".
A: it doesn't have much edge, It took me a lot of work to cut the branches of my tree
A: The blade is 15". The handle and blade together are 24".
A: The blade is 24" long.
A: I had the same issue and used a grinder. Hand file was taking way too long.
A: I purchased this machete believing it would be an upgrade over the original fiskar machete. The blade on both appear to be made of the same material. I use a regular medium hand file to keep a nice cutting edge on the original. The original is very nice to use; lighter which means faster which means better cutting and less arm fatigue. I returned this one for a full refund because it simply would not perform for me.
A: Yes, mine is fairly dull also. I have to wack a few times and use to cut my "huge" birds of paradise.
A: I also was not happy with this. I had someone try to sharpen it. It got a little sharper. I went back to using my 50 year old machete.
A: Mine came without a sharp edge to it as well. I assumed this was a safety liability thing. I used a garden tool sharpener on it, and that gave it some edge, but I think I still want it sharper. I intend to try the garden tool sharpener a second time and see if that gets it where I want it. If not the blade has enough thickness that I believe I will be able to get it where I want it using a grinder without compromising the blade strength at all.
A: I had my son-in-law sharpen it at his metal working company. Sad to say but even after it was sharpened it remained unable to cut even thin tree vines. I question if it could cut it's way out of a paper bag. Sorry to sound negative, but I too have been very disappointed in this tool's performance ability.
A: It's not all that sharp when you buy it. I reground the edges and then used a stone to finish sharpening it.
A: The metal extends several inches into the matchete.
A: Since the handle does not expose the edges of the tang, it's impossible to tell how far through the handle it extends, but I don't feel any flexing between the handle and blade. I can tell you it does not extend the full length of the handle as the end of the handle is hollow up to about a half inch ahead of the hole through it.
A: It is. It is also surrounded by plastic, plan on wrapping the handle.
A: Thank you for contacting Fiskars. The tang on this machete extends several inches into the handle.
A: No. It appears to go bout 3/4 of the way though.
A: Thank you for contacting Fiskars. Fiskars does not currently offer any extensions for the machetes.
A: I cannot answer your question with any certainty, but I can't imagine needing to extend the handle. I'm not at all a small man, and there is about two inches more handle grip than I need. As a matter of fact, in my initial review I criticized the handle as being too long.
