I bought this bad boy over a year ago and have used it several different times. Believe it or not, I found it at a gun show in Tampa, Fl for only 20 bucks. It looked cool enough and i'm a sucker for impulse buys, so i figured why not. Played with it a little bit in the yard when I got home and then put it away until I needed it. Since I wasn't actively looking for a brush cutter it sat idley until I decided that I needed to trim up the first 6ft on all the trees on my property (3.2 Acres). Amazing product! Not sure if it's the weight, handle, length, or shape, but this mamma-jamma helped me go to town. Limbs on Pines, shrub oaks, and palmettos all went Buh-bye with minimal swinging. I was sold and loved the thing. Hunting season came around and since I always carry either my Kabar or one of my other hip toys, I gave this blade a try. I set my climber on a tree and used the kukri to hack the pestering limbs all the way up to my spot. Never an issue. I brush cut, web check, Poop-check, swat spiders, flip it around when I'm bored, Hack down small pines and oaks, and even throw it into stuff (which I'm aweful at). It has served me extremely well and I would recommend this product to anyone. The best part is, I NEVER sharpened the thing. Not once. I'm pretty good at sharpening knives and broadheads, but when it comes to machetes and lawnmower blades, I'm terrible. So I told myself that I would take my time and sharpen it with extra detail when the time came, but the time has yet to come. Just used it last weekend in Citrus WMA (Fl) and its still sharp as ever.
Now that the praise is out there, I'd like to bring up the concerning issues with this beast. first issue is the price.Read more ›
Guys are afraid of 440 stainless, but 440c is an acceptable knife steel, and can be quite tough when properly heat treated. I chopped up a small junker tree out back and batoned through a bunch of firewood and the blade held up fine. Couple licks on a steel and it was right back where it started. Factory edge is to abrupt and honed only so-so, but it's a chopper so it's good enough.
Finish was applied evenly and held up good through use. Handle is comfortable shape/material. Slight wiggle in handle to tang fit, seems to be getting worse under use, so fit gets a solid D+. I'd buy this thing again, and I'm considering another Smith and Wesson big blade because I'm very happy with the cost/performance ratio. Go ahead and buy it.
Carpenter Stainless Type 440C is a high-carbon chromium steel designed to provide stainless properties with maximum hardness. It has been used primarily as a bearing steel, and is used in the hardened plus tempered condition. When heat-treated, Type 440C attains the highest hardness of any stainless steel (about Rockwell C 60).
great weight, balance, design, easy grip handle and for all the folks who dismiss the case, i truly like it. makes for an easy draw when you need it.
easiest way to sharpen is with a 2 carbide slotted system.

Used a lansky blade medic to put an edge on it when received as they don't come very sharp. I think that they come dull so as not to be extremely dangerous, just kind of dangerous. Read morePublished 3 months ago by gettmoore
