First choice is the Fiskars brand, one of the18 inch and a 29 inch. Second choice is a Gerbers. 2 or 3 of the Harbor Freight for loaners. The 29 inch Fiskars is a killer, it is also doubles as an axe.

I have used the same machete for 25 years, it is a tramontina. I bought it at Ace Hardware in Huntsville, Tx. paid 24.95 as I recall.

Have used this one since 1978. Has done it all no problems, no dumbschitt sawteeth, 22 inches is the perfect length, blade holds an edge and is heavy enough to do the job.

That's what I use around the Ranch. They know how to make a machete.

I use mine weekly during the summer months and they hold up very well.

In fact, I bought some recently to send to my nephew's.

Everyone’s useage plans can be different and I knew how I would use the Woodmans Pal I talked 603 out of.
Tonight I moved this trailer blind in tight to this old grown up windmill spot. Until I got it cleared some and leveled, it was a chore climbing up using both the blind ladder and windmill ladder.
- With my smaller and handier Wiodmans Pal on my belt I trimmed away as I went up.
-I used the “hook” end to pull away pesky vines.
-When I got inside I used the flat end to scoop out all the owl crap from a year of open air windows.
-When I got down and leveled the outrigger feet thingys, I used the blunt edge to tighten the hand bolt things on the outriggers.
That was just today……

I've had good luck with the Gerber Gator machetes.
