The extra long handle on this model can easily be used one handed (it's tremendously well balanced) but will comfortably accommodate two hands as well. It's unsurpassed for sheer versatility in the field, on the farm or in a forest. Plus, the 21 inch Latin styled blade has the potential to make delicate, precision cuts in tight quarters or deliver brutal limb loppers in an instant. If you like the look and feel of traditional Latin machetes, we're sure you're going to love the extra horsepower available in our new two handed model.

This machete, like other Cold Steel products that I have purchased, is not going to win any beauty contests. It is a bare-bones work tool that will get the job done but will not dazzle the eyes like some Condor machetes might do.
I gave this item three stars because it does not come sharpened, and it does not come with a sheath. I used a Smith's two-stage knife sharpener to put a rough angle on the blade and to hone it to paper-cutting sharpness. I could not get the blade evenly sharp, however, using this method, nor could I get it as sharp as I would have liked to get it in some spots. Nevertheless, it is plenty sharp now to do what it is made to do.
Speaking of what this machete is "made" to do, I could easily see this item being used not only as an agricultural tool but also as an excellent, inexpensive weapon for self-defense. When I tested it on the box that it came in, I had to swing it only about six inches, allowing the weight of the blade to do its own work, and it bit deep into the cardboard. Using very little effort, I was able to jab the tip deep into the box as well. One can only imagine what it would accomplish with a full-powered swing or jab in a self-defense situation.
So there you have it: If you want an affordable, two-handed machete that can hack down bushes and double as a weapon, you might want to buy this one. Just make sure that you have sharpening tools on hand; you're going to need them!
