I know there has been threads on this subject, but I can't find them. I need recommendations for a good machete. I need one that will be effective for clearing brush, and for any SHTF situations that might come up. Sharp, sturdy, and easy to sharpen would be prime requirements. I am not looking for a big knife, or a survival blade, but an honest to goodness machete. Suggestions? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
