    Ontario Machete discussions

    Sorry if I missed it but I didn't see a machete specific category. Also, am I missing something about the sharpness of a machete blade ? I say, the sharper the better. Anyways, something that has always puzzled me is when I hear people say that machete's are not supposed to be hair popping...

    Photos Please help identify my Machete.

    Hi everyone, I'm hoping you can tell me little more about the machete I got since 1990. It looks to me as some of the Condor flavors but I'm not very familiar with the machetes. I've being using it a lot, in and out. Never had problems with the rust, it's threated with Ospho and the "rust" you...

    Machete edges: toothy or polished?

    There are many threads on toothy versus polished edges but not one specific to machetes. Generally a more polished edge is recommended for push cuts and testing indicates a polished edge lasts longer in this use, just as a toothy edge lasts longer is draw cuts. Apart from a swept or hooked...

    SOLD - Sabervex machete

    This sword-like machete is AEB-L, and is light for its size. The low sabervex grind is strong, but still tapers nice and thin, down to .008" behind the edge for most of the length of the blade; this will cut very well for you, while preserving full thickness of the nearly 1/8" stock the entire...

    Broken Machete Thrower

    In my quest to get a Machete subgroup added; I'm stinking up other groups with machete related posts. This video represents my existential dread of growing older and less capable; while at the time illustrating that machetes are so awesome that even when they are broken they still kick ass.
