    I had no idea that Etsy sold old machetes

    I somehow thought the website Etsy just sold home made earrings and backpacks made from recycled newspaper, but it turns out they sell other stuff too. Pretty rad.

    Photos (UPDATES on Pg. 2) Do Tramontina machetes come from the factory like this or did the seller damage it with a grinder?

    I bought a 24" Tramontina with a poly handle. I was under the impression that the tip to somewhere around the belly would be, mostly, unfinished, but maybe that's the basic 18" Trams. I know my Ontario (18") took ages to get going with a file. But I received it with the belly and tip oddly...

    Curvy machetes

    Two Italian hikers requested curvy, pointed machetes for use while backpacking in the wilderness. They don't know each other, it was a coincidence that both of them asked for the exact same thing at the same time. Made of old BT23 Russian armor plate alloy, one of my favorites. 18" blades, one...

    Machetes and Mid-tech/Production Fiddlebacks

    Just wondering if these are going to be restocked at any time in the near future. I haven't noticed the Machetes being available for, like, a really really long time. :confused: If anyone has any version of the Fiddleback Machete or a Pro or CS Camp Knife they would like to sell or trade, let...

    Short machetes

    I'm looking at the Condor eco parang and the Cudeman bolo machete. 42blades helped me a lot talking about the eco parang and I pretty much made up my mind to get one. 1075 steel, 3mm thick, bit worried the handle could be a bit thick. But I've seen the Cudeman reduced to the same price £50...

    Lightest machetes in the world!

    One of the Siberian Slasher ultralight machetes from a numbered batch has a permanent slight bow in the blade, the result of a heat treatment bugaboo. This means I get to beat up on the machete! As far as I know, these are the lightest machetes in the world, at an average of about 9 ounces and...
