I liked everything about this sword except for the handle. The wood on the handle is too small for the machetes grip. When you hold it, it hard to get a good grip with the metal part of the handle protruding out past the wood attached to it. It makes it really unconfortable if your holding it for any length of time. For the price it's a good buy. I suggest making your own handle wood covering if you buy it.
This ia a bad ass 26-inch Machete, it saved my life the first time I used, a bear charged me and I stabed it in the heart, didn't die right away, so I threw a gernade at it and that just pissed it off, so I cut It's throat. thanks overstock Im Your Momma
