    I have the 10" machete, my granddaughters gave it to me for Christmas for couple of years ago.
    So I've kept it for sentimental reasons. The saw back is pretty much useless,
    The first time I tried to cut some bush the edge rolled badly
    The handle feels like it has separated from the tang and the retention strap on the sheath failed
    As a cutting tool mine is not much use. But because my girls gave it to me it's a cherished part of the collection

    I got one 9 years ago that was brand new and I used it to clear light brush on a trail going into my camp. There was a 4" rotten balsam that had blown over the trail so I tried to hack it into two, to pull the top part off the path. On my 3rd swing a 50cent sized chunk of steel was suddenly missing from the blade and it looked like the cookie monster took a bite out of it. I couldn't believe that a half rotten balsam tree could/should do that to this machete....they are junk IMO.
