    I like my " Baryonyx Machete ", bought it when they were on the Pre-order list. :dblthumb:

    Still waiting for my " Kingfisher Machete " Pre-order to be delivered :22:

    Don't have a " Daikaju "..:2:

    But, I do have a few other longer blades to play " Apocalyptic War Games / Demon Hunting ". :4:

    I have one. I find it tiring to swing and the handle flares a bit too much towards the pommel for me. It's very effective. But I never use it

    I thought it would be a perfect tool for the PNW. Heavy enough to chop, brush hook for thorns, thin enough to swing all day, good size, ect. To be honest though, I don't use the hook nearly as much as I thought I would and I felt like it was a bit too flexible for hardwoods but too short for thin brush.

    I would prefer something a bit stiffer and longer... er... you know what I mean...

    Nope! They are big! :) I like mine a lot! I don’t use it too often but it has served me well and would be a top choice for me if headed out for a day of clearing brush. I would like a smaller general purpose sized model for around camp or trail. Say a 12in blade or so would be a nice sweet size to me.

    Heres a few more comparison photos.

    The Baryonyx Machete is heavier than the top traditional styled Machete.

    I normally toss both into my vehicle, while I'm out and about Car Camping.

    If, they happen to get stolen...? No major dollar loss $$. :31:

    The T.M. Hunt M18, is a tad heavier..But, it's balanced better & cost a lot more $$$$$$$ :eek:

    Hmmm... scale it down to 3/4 size, maybe? Hmm, I say. That DOES sound quite appealing. Not as heavy-hitting, but I'd wager it'd feel and handle pretty sweet! I may have to suggest that to Ben. Maybe he's reading this right now... o_O

    Meant to add that I have one and love it. Works nicely in my WV woods and weeds. Beats the tar out of a Woodman's Pal.
