    Fiddleback 12" machete and a T.M. Hunt Bolo. Both great for their respective tasks.

    Great pair -- the 12" machete is my personal favorite; the TM Hunt bolo is a total beast!!!

    Another sweet round of choppers!! Those Village Imports are stellar!

    Looks like a chopping machine -- great addition P! :emot-yarr:

    i just found this thread. i was just looking at the fiddleback machete last night. with that said, i am not sure i have a legitimate use for one. but, that doesn't stop me from coveting one. i mean, i should have one just in case...right!?? :rolleyes:

    in general, i know a machete is great for clearing brush, and you could obviously use it for some wood processing. but, i'm curious what you guys use them for specifically. forgive my big-knife ignorance.

    like clearing a path while hunting? or, literally as a "dispatcher"? perhaps the answer is both....

    nice collection btw

    Awesome contribution -- thanks for the bump

    @Fiddleback - hey Andy, it was great seeing the 5/32 camp this week; are we ever going to see 5/32" TT camp knives again? It's been about 3-4 yrs since I've seen one (last spotted a "blueback" TT camp at blade 2014). If so, sign me up! ;)

    Love these pics.

    @xxwjtxx I'll look into this. I haven't thought about it. I think it started as a way to keep the individual price down.
