Question by joelsammons. Uploaded on August 09, 2009
i have one made by cold steel and one by Gerber and like both . the blade on the cold steel is a bit stiffer so i guess i like that one a bit more but both a good
The best one in my opinion is a dang sharp and strong one!
Not sure about the best, but I have a USMC one that is available at most surplus stores. Nothing special, but very passable.
I had the model Gerber puts out, and I was not impressed.
THERE A BIT PRICEY BUT THE WOODSMANSPAL.IS WORTH IT.
I like Tremontina machetes and cane knives. Decent steel at an excellent price and take a great edge.
Check out what SOG (I think they have the best blades available) has to offer on their site.... pricey though.
I've got a Cold Steele two handed machete that I love. Really good for whacking limb, briars and small saplings. I've cut down 3" diameter pines with one swing.
I second Country Road, I've had a Tremontina for about 10 years. It lives in my truck's tool box and has been used to cut everything from cornstalks to rattlesnakes. It holds and edge and the price can't be beat!
Hands down the Woodman's Pal. American made, strong, and last forever. They have great quality high carbon steel and are easy to resharpen in the field.
It does not matter what you buy, just make sure it has a hard blade and is sharpened well. Learn to use it properly, as many people accidentally injur themselves when using it improperly.
cold steel. anything by cold steel.
Agreed with country road and + 1 for you sir!!!
