I have tried a bunch of machetes. They usually won't take a good edge, and they certainly won't hold it. A few chops and they are dull again. This Tramontina is the exception! I had always heard their machetes were the best. Now I believe it.

It had a very poor edge on it when it arrived. I clamped it in a bench vise and spent about an hour working on it with a file to get a decent edge on it. I finished it on a stone. The machete is sharp enough now to shave hair off my arm, and it holds its edge well when working. A machete must be made of fairly soft steel of course, or it would break, but this one holds an edge well considering the softness of the steel. It keeps cutting nicely for a long time.

I have tried the Cold Steel and Ontario machetes, and they don't compare favorably to this one. The Ontario seems to have comparatively poor edge geometry. It doesn't cut as cleanly or bite as deeply. The Cold Steel also disappoints.

I have heard that some folks like the machete as a do-everything outdoor tool. I find I can clear brush with this one pretty well, and I imagine it would also be good for cutting sugar cane and slicing open coconuts, but it does not do everything well. A hatchet or even one of my Bowie knives would be better for chopping wood. The machete is also a little too clumsy for delicate work. This will not be replacing my Bowie knives in my camping kit.

The machete I received does not match the one pictured. The blade is bare steel, without the gold coating.

The construction is a little crude. The handle is an awkward shape and has a sharp edge along the back side. It bites the hand a little. I'm sure a little whittling and the application of some kind of tape would help a lot. But this machete gets full marks for the quality of the blade. Why can't they all be this good?

I was a Peace Corps volunteer in Latin America. During this time I used a machete on a daily basis. We used something similar to the Cold Steel Latin 24" Machete. Now that i am back in the states, I don't find myself using a machete to harvest sugar cane, beans, corn, or cutting weeds. But I did want a machete for other work, such as cutting down small trees, bushes, and other "heavier" machete work.

After reading the abundance of reviews on various machetes, i went with Tramontina's Brazilian Machete. Wow, great choice for heavier machete work! The Brazilian machete is heavier than the Latin style. I would guess that Tramontina's 18" blade weighs a little more than the 24" Latin style (but not much). The shorter blade allows more "swing room" in some situations where the 24" blade would be hard to use. But the heftier blade still has better "chopping power" than the Latin style machete. That's better for chopping woody stuff, but bad if you are cutting sugar cane or other lighter stuff (if you had to cut sugar cane all day with this machete, your dang arm would fall off).

This machete does not come fully sharpened. This seems to bother some people. But, at least in my experience, that's standard for all tools. Others have commented that there is flex in the machete (although much less than the Latin style). Again, that's standard for machetes. In fact it is essential for chopping wood, trees, etc. That give in the blade helps dissipate energy after contact (less vibration through the handle), and is also a safety factor (the blade is much less likely to "bounce" off the tree- and back into you). Once you get used to it, you will see that it's actually a huge advantage.

Over the years I have owned a number of machetes and Tramontina never lets me down. I got my first Tramontina when I was walking through an abandoned lot close to my house. The blade had some rust and needed to be sharpened but it has been my go to machete for years. When I happened upon this one I had to buy it. I can't remember where I bought it from now but I never thought twice about the purchase. With this blade so far I have no complaints, it is heavier than some machetes but it more than makes up for it in its strength. I cut down small trees with my machetes and this blade has cut down trees that have 2" diameter trunks. Other machetes I have tried usually do one of three things. The blades dulls really fast, the edge warps, or the whole blade warps. I have never had a problem like this with my Tramontina. Some future problems you may experience, that I have on my older machete, include rusting and handle breakage. The handle broke on my old blade after about 5 years of use. I took the wood held it in place and wrapped it in duct tape. Its been fine ever since. This blade will also rust, it is not stainless steel and has no protective coating. This has not been an issue for me, the surface rusts and you can get it out with sandpaper if you want but I have left it. Just keep your blade dry and you shouldn't have to worry about it.

I buy and will continue to buy machetes to test and find the best ones. If you are looking for an inexpensive and extremely rugged machete I would recommend this one. It is the only one so far that I would trust for my bug out bag.

"Wow!" That's what I said when I first picked it up. How could something so basic and dull looking feel so right. It has a great weight about it and the handle feels great. I read the reviews but was skeptical when I saw the picture. The Cold Steel Kukri and some of the others looked so much cooler. If you want a tool that swings easy and cuts with almost no effort get this. I was looking elsewhere because of no lanyard hole but after a couple of swings I realized a lanyard wasn't necessary

On branches of 1/2 inch thick you barely need to swing. On thicker branches it digs deep and finishes fast. I can't say if it will split wood well, I doubt it. But that's what axes are for. My backyard is now pretty bare and I'm thinking of asking the neighbor if I can trim up some of his trees. That's how much fun it is.
