    Default Machete/Large knife question

    Recently saw a machete that had a blade shape similar to a condor village parang but the handle was completely straight. I'd say the blade was about 14 inches and the handle was 5-6 inches. There was a diamond symbol on the blade. Does anyone know what this was?

    and no I didnt get a picture... that would just be too easy

    What type of finish did the blade have? What was the handle material? And where did you see this machete?

    That reminds me a lot of the Japanese nata.... Sorry I couldn't be more help.

    My dad had one on the farm. The hardware store called it a Chinese machete. He bought in the early 90's when I was away at college. I tried it,but found it too thick and ackward. Found it to be a cross between a machete and a parang. It was well constructed for what it was. A friend of mine now has it.

    It looks like a cane knife used for harvesting sugar cane.

    Well I do know that Diamond Brand is a commonly exported Chinese machete brand, but the diamond on their blade is of the cut-gem variety rather than a rhombus like the diamond on a deck of cards.
