Given who we were surveyed for, 95% of our time was spent in Florida swamps. Our mornings started with sharpening the machetes with a file before work began. At lunch time, we got another chance to sharpen our machetes. By the end of the day, my machete was the only one that held a good edge, so I was always at the front of cutting line. I ordered this one hoping Ontario Knife hadn't changed their quality. From what I have seen so far, they haven't. It has held a great edge, though the vegetation is more sparse. I believe the quality is still there.
My only complaint would be from my previous experience. The D of the handle,
protecting my hand, often beat the crap out of my knuckles.
Just an FYI as to why I do business with you. Last Christmas after calling on the status of a knife I ordered, I learned it was out-of-stock. Ultimately you took care of me and expressed mailed-at no charge, the replacement I ordered. The knife arrived on time + you threw in a free small CTR folding knife as well (nice)..
