Hello everyone, Here is a pretty hefty machete, made of 4al 2.5v 1.5fe titanium armor plate alloy (grade 38). It was forged pretty closely to this final shape and is a bit cosmetically rough. The colors from heat treatment were preserved, leaving a hard, slippery surface coating on the blade. It's about 13 ounces, and 24" in total length. Toward the tip end of the blade, the grind is convex and slightly elliptical. This is a mean machete, with a steep distal thickness taper. This thing should be a real pleasure to use in the woods or back 40. Thanks for looking!
