Yesterday, I ran across one of these. I looked it up online and saw they were selling new for about $25, although someone bought one used on eBay last month for almost $60. But both of those were with sheaths. The sheath that was with the one I got is actually a longer "cordura" type material that was folded to suit the length. However, unfolded, it'll take my longer Promedoca machete. I just nosed around the web a bit and am not finding much exposure/coverage of these blades, in particular. This seems to fit in my mix somewhere roughly in the "chopper" slot, between the machete and, say, the BK-7. It's now about as dull a blade as I've ever seen, so needs some serious sharpening. But the edge is only a bit nicked and being 1095, 1/8" thick I think it'll come back just fine. It's got a 12" blade, but with 1.5" or so unground by the handle for a cutting length of 10.5" and OAL of 18" These must not be too popular, noting the absence of appearances online? I paid $15 for it.
