Hi all, just received my martindale golok #2 machete in the mail after a month in transit from england. Here is a pic


This is the first machete I've bought in a long time, so I thought I would post some quick initial impressions. First, most of the internet reviews of this thing are spot on. While I REALLY like the design, the fit and finish of this machete are not up to par with its price. It. Comes with almost no edge, and takes some work to give it one if you go old school and use a file like I did. With some TLC I was able to give it a pretty good edge. Also of note, this machete is definitely a chopper more than a slasher, which is one of the reasons I chose it. The blade is thick and heavy and it has a solid feel in the hand for such a compact machete. Field reviews to follow shortly!
