Thought I would share one of my favorite woods combos. EDKarda and 12" Machete. Good blades from a good company. You can tell that a lot of thought went into their design. It's been a while since I used the Fiddleback machete. It's an amazing blade. Hold the handle further back and it's a chopper, hold it close to the blade and it will carve like a knife. No choil, just a comfortable multi-position handle. Works great as a big knife or machete.
