I bought mine to help clear my yard after this winter's ice storm brought down a vine maple. The tree missed the house but filled the back yard. My brother used a chainsaw on the big stuff, I used a pole saw on the high stuff, I used an axe on the low thick stuff, and this woodman's pal on the thinner branches so that we'd have a clear shot at the thicker stuff.

It cut a little less well than I was hoping. The pamphlet that came with it said, up to 2" in one whack, well maybe I'm not the woodman I need to be to get a green maple branch that thick off in one whack, 3 or four usually. The axe does do it in one whack but if you have too much brush in the way to swing the axe, this tool worked better.

It's now in the trunk with my axe for camping. I had always wanted one of these and I'm glad I bought it. The metal is thick, it did hold it's edge the week it took to cut that mess up. I did buy a DMT FWCX Double Sided Diafold Sharpener Coarse / Extra-Coarse and a DMT DCSFH Diamond Cone Small with Handle for sharpening the hook. A couple of strokes with those diamond stones and the blade was again sharp as new.

I like the knuckle guard but it does prevent you from turning the tool in your hand to use the hook side facing out. But in practice that didn't matter. It is made in the USA at the same factory as they have been using since the '40's. and I'm glad to support that. I also bought the oiled leather sheath to go with it as here in the PNW, wet is the word of the weather. On pricing it seems like you can get it direct from the company for the same price and so I did.

This is a wonderful tool for landscaping clean-up work. The tool weight is perfect - heavy enough so I can get my back into a good swing when chopping branches; light enough so that I can use it for an extended time without tiring or strain. I love the leather-wrapped grip - makes it SO easy to maintain a secure grip even when my hands are wet. I've used it for clearing branches, clearing out dead shrubs, thinning bamboo canes, and several other tasks. An absolute joy to use provided the blade is kept sharp.

The fact that this is US made using all US parts is icing on the cake. This is a tool that, with proper care, will easily outlive the owner.

I debated getting this model versus the standard, and opted for this mainly because of the hand guard. While that has been nice, the leather grip alone is worth the extra cost of the premium model versus the regular one.

I also opted to save a few bucks and get the nylon sheath rather than the leather one. While I'm sure the leather sheath looks and works great, the nylon one performs just fine. The material is thick and sturdy; there's an interior pouch that holds the sharpening stone; and there's velcro on the side (plus a sturdy metal snap closure on the top) to make it easy to insert/remove the blade. It also has a belt loop if you want to keep the tool at your side at all times.

Speaking of which, if you do use this for zombie attacks, be sure to strike with the hook portion on the side of the head, not the top. A top down strike will get the job done, but there's a strong risk of the blade getting stuck. A side strike makes it much easier to dislodge the blade should you be dealing with a herd. If you're looking for pointers on the Walking Dead, emulate Daryl's methods, not Glenn's.

Though the price is high for a machete, this tool is worth every penny if you have the means. I used it the first day I received it, and having never used a Woodman's Pal before, I was able to clear my entire back yard (approx. 1/4 acre) of thorny brambles and small saplings within 30 minutes. It would easily have taken twice as long and resulted in much frustration and many scratches and thorn gouges with a regular machete.

The genius of the design is in the sickle hook on the back of the blade. It not only cuts quite well itself, but brush and debris can be quickly and (most importantly) safely pulled out and thrown aside in one motion -- without bending over and grappling with your work (all the while holding a sharp blade in one hand if you haven't already dropped it in frustration).

It makes the clearing of brush and saplings almost enjoyable and absolutely faster and safer. Attention to detail is an understatement when referring to the design of the Woodman's Pal. You'll know what I mean when you see one up close. From the blunted safety edges to the inward curve of the main blade to the bevel grind on the sickle edge, this is a "thinking mans" machete. It is very well made and nicely balanced so it's not tiresome to use. The leather-wrapped handle and "cutlass style" hand guard is a nice touch too, but like everything else on this blade, serves a purpose. The leather prevents slippage while the guard protects your hands and knuckles as well as secures the machete in your hand. It looks nice too. If you take it camping with you, don't be surprised if folks at the campground take notice.

I recently purchased the Woodman’s Pal Premium Model 284 from Amazon. I was anxious to try it out clearing branches and brush from my hunting blind. It worked great! However, after only 10 minutes or so the knuckle guard separated from the leather handle causing several of the leather pieces to become lost. I was disappointed to say the least. Upon inspection, it appears that the guard is just pressed onto the handle - not tacked welded or pinned in any way. I believed I was buying a quality American made product that would last. I was wrong. I will return this tool.
