The Elk Ridge Machete is equally well-suited for protection from the zombies, or for clearing brush in the yard. The 3mm blade is thick enough for daily use, but sharp enough to cut through most weeds. At 21.5”, it is large enough to add a taste of chivalry while it is displayed on the wall, or to slice through branches with ease. The orange and black handle is elegant and comfortable during use. Comes with a lanyard and nylon pouch, so your Elk Ridge will be protected, even when you aren’t using it. Specifications: MACHETE 21.5" OVERALL 3MM THICK BLADE ORANGE & BLACK HANDLE INCLUDES LANYARD & NYLON POUCH

Now to this 22" Survival machette. First, it's heavier than I expected. It is balanced nicely towards the end. That has its pluses and minuses. It will fatigue your arm if you're swinging back and forth through weeds. The positive is your arms are getting in shape for a sword duel. On the other hand if you are using this to hack away at branches instead of slashing weeds, this is the tool to use. The weight and thickness of your blade become your friend. It's great at chopping down on wood for the same reason. I haven't used the serrated edge to saw through anything because the blade did well enough on its own. I loved the design of the handle. Time will tell in its durability. I can't stress enough to anyone who is buying a machete or any blade for that matter, to buy a good sharpening tool and use it often. 'Cut' your time in half by staying sharp. The sheath is a nylon material. I would like to see some predrilled holes or slits on the edge of the sheath to give it more flexibility to attach it to a pack or strap to a rack. In summary, this is a very good all around woodsman machette to have with you. The price is right. It's a very good value.
Some people say it's too heavy, but it's only a little heavier than my last machete and I've never been fatigued by it. I cleared maybe half a mile so far through thick brush. It was flawless with anything from tall grass to saplings maybe two inches wide.
One of the best things about this machete is the quality of the blade. There's stainless steel, high carbon steel, and then high carbon stainless steel, each with different qualities. I don't have time to explain the differences but this blade seems to be high carbon stainless steel due to how it keeps it's edge, it's weight, and how it never rusts.
Due to my terrain, the blade has bounced off a couple hidden rocks when clearing low brush (causing me to wince each time). This has resulted in some dents, but nothing major, and definitely not taking anything away from the blade's effectiveness.
I did use the saw-edge a couple times and was very pleased with it. It's actually a very well forged, well serrated saw that goes through solid oak pretty quickly. Every time I use it sawdust goes EVERYWHERE, but that just shows how effective it is.
The only drawback is the handle. I got a few blisters due to how the plastic is moulded - blisters which I never got with my old machete, knives, shovel, or axe, despite hours of use with each. I got similar blisters with a hatchet I used for a while, so I guess it's just normal with a new tool. Still a 5 star tool.
I replaced it with a more expensive Fiskers 29" Machete/Axe.
Caveat emptor: The blade is *NOT* bowie-sharpened on the back, unlike what's shown in one of the pictures.
The sheath is actually relatively nice, although the lower of the two buckles doesn't need to exist, and the sheath would hold the blade more sturdily if the higher of the two buckles was flush with the mouth of the sheath. I plan to make a leather sheath for this at some point, though, so this is relatively moot for me.
Caveat emptor: The saw blade on the back is not sharp, and the spikes are a fair bit irregular.
Also, one of the 6 screws in the handle came stripped.
And it comes with a long length of cord (not even paracord, at that) tied to the eyelet at the pommel. It's annoying, and you'll probably want to detach it.
