Hey Jason, well I wish there were some pines or fir trees down there for you to use it on for a Christmas Tree. A palm and a pine scented candle doesn't really achieve the same sense of the season. Glad to hear that blade is performing well for you. I'm always grateful for feedback from the real world, and those jungles are about as real world as it gets. I'm curious what kind of machetes you see most there among the people who use them for a living? Maker, size, blade shape, etc.?
