    Thanks very much for the nice comments. I've always thought that in use a big long blade is where ti alloy really stands out.

    How well does the edge hold up on a titanium machete such as this one for wood chopping? Is it more likely to roll /deform or chip of it were to fail in some way?



    I ask as someone who knows absolutely nothing about titanium in general let alone this kind of application.

    Also, that thing does look absolutely badass, and has gotten me quite interested in titanium as a blade material.

    Thanks BoozeFighter. A good ti alloy holds up great for wood chopping, and is more likely to roll than to chip out, but you have to give it a good whack for something like that to happen.

    Thanks for replying, I am hoping to add a chopper/machete to my stable of cutting implements in the future, I will keep an eye on the Maker’s for sale area for one of your titanium creations when the time comes.

    Roger that! The next ones that will be available are the Siberian Slashers. They're going to be very special I think, something that has been in the works for a while now, finally ready to bear fruit.
