    I've been looking for a chopper or small machete for a while and just read about this one in another thread. Anyone have any info on it besides what's on BHK's website? Looks good to me.

    I'd be interested as well. Not sure it they went the same route as Fiddleback having their blades made in El Salvador or somewhere else. They look nice, and so does the kydex sheath.

    It looks pretty good, and I like the way the Kydex sheath looks. Hopefully someone will get a review up on one of them soon.

    They say the blade blanks are made by an outside company that specializes in machetes, so I assume it is probably one of the large south American makers. Then BHK does all the finish work and handles on it. I love the design because it's a little shorter and has some features specific to using it more as a woods tool than just a jungle cutter. My will is crumbling on it, I really want one! I like the design of the sheath too, it's really well thought out.

    The sheath is pretty slick idea

    Only seeing quick glimpses of the handle, but it looks like Dave is carrying this machete on Dual Survival tonight.

    I'm really wanting to handle one of these, I like large machetes but I think this little thing is pretty nice

    I hope they bring some to Blade

    Wow. What a coincidence. I was watching Dual Survival tonight and saw Dave wielding a machete. I saw the blade first and thought it looks exactly like the Fiddleback 12". But when they showed the handle / scales it looked completely different. When I saw this thread, actually stumbling upon it after trying to find the real machete elsewhere, I knew it was a slam dunk since BHK made Dave's full tang field blade that he used one or two episodes ago.

    He had a nice leather sheath for his, though.

    Long handles have always seemed to hinder chopping for me.

    The machete is the very cool, I have one. I need to finish profiling the scales though so, I have no pics yet. The sheath that is offered is a kydex design that came about after last nights episode was filmed last year. The leather sheath was getting gunked up and jamming the machete with grass, mud, etc. getting in there. The new kydex design allows the muck and whatnot to just fall out.

    First, let me note I like the looks of the sheath. But isnt it a little obvious to clean off (At least knock off the big chunks) a machete before putting it in a sheath ? If theres so much crap jamming it up, clean it off

    See I'm thinking it'll be a plus. When you want to do fine work you want to have a neutral balance and the edge closest to the scales. When chopping you want to hold at the back of the handle and cut with the tip. If you envision the weight distribution then a long handle can maximize it for the different tasks. At least that's what I hope. :D It'll be here this week so we'll see.;)

    thinking the blade may be an ONTARIO product ... bet it is NOT imported.
    if it is ... I would be very surprised if it was IMPORTED.
    There is a video out of it by Blindhorse.
    I HAVE BRUSH N WEEDS HERE NEEDING CUT ... FEEL FREE TO FIELD TEST IT.

    Has to be an imported one. Ontario machetes are 1095. Imacasa uses 1075, as does Tramontina, but I feel as though it is less likely they got blanks from Tramontina on account of Imacasa already being a supplier of machete blanks to Fiddleback Forge and ESEE.
