Best $15 i ever spent on a knife. It has lasted me 4 years of hard use so far and it has plenty of life left in it. I would HIGHLY recommend
Marble's machetes are the BEST value going.I own 4 and have used them for everything imaginable and they hold a good edge and resharpen easily.The best feature about Marble's machetes is the fact they come READY TO USE right out the box with a shaving sharp convex edge,unlike a very popular brand online that ships theirs out with horrible edge grinds,butter knife dull blades,and sheaths that are dime store quality.Marble's sheaths ALONE are worth $20,they are BY FAR the best sheaths available besides the leather sheaths Condor makes.If you can't afford a Condor,get the second best option,get a Condor made Marble's..
Very good machete for the price. It came sharp and with a nice sturdy nylon sheath that holds the machete in place, leaving room to hold a small file for sharpening sharpening stone is adequate and fits well in a pocket that has a velcro closure. The second pocket i big enough to hold a fire steel, tinder and other important supplies.
So far, I have only used this for lawn work
.- edging and weed removal. It has stood up well, and was easy to sharpen with a flat file. Though I have only used it in suburburbia, I would not hesitate to bring it out to the tropical bush.
While it is marketed by Marbles (American), it is made in El Salvador, where people use machetes daily for farming and garden tasks. It is an excellent and affordable basic tool.
