    Default Fiskars machete

    I recently picked up a fiskars machete for 8 bucks from sears. It is a 22 inch latin style machete. It seems decent but the handle is not comfy. Has anyone else tried one of these

    I've got one. It'll take a good sharp edge, but the blade is definitely more for softer, greener stuff and grass and brush. It's not a baton-capable blade due to its thin profile and hollow grind, and I am fairly certain you could bend it wailing on hardwoods (for which it isn't designed). However, it does take a nice edge like I said, and can be re-sharpened easily. It gets a little wobbly due to it's length and thin blade, but it's awesome for tall grass and the like. I like it, just make sure you have plenty of room around you...it's still a 22-inch balde that takes a bit of effort to stop once it's moving. And you're right, the handle is a bit odd, but after I used it I got used to it and felt it was comfortable. You could always thin the handle a bit too, if you wanted as I believe they are solid handles, not hollow (I could be wrong on that though).
