  • 2 Sturdy Brush Knives - cheap

    Jan Craig, 4/15/2018 Good blades, seriously needs sharpening..no problem. Handles thick and awkward for small hand, but enough extra wood to shape to custom fit. At a cost of $10 each, includes shipping, they are a great deal and no one should be complaining. Make sure you keep these oiled when not in use to hold off rust. After detailing to fit, a little bright paint to easily see in the brush if dropped. I'm happy with them. Good buy and would buy again.
  • Inexpensive Knife

    PHH, 12/8/2017 What do you expect for $10? I bought this after reading the poor reviews and found that the blade is worth the price on its own. Yes, it is dull but I will sharpen it myself and it is fairly thick. The handle is crap but can be reinforced or remade when the time comes.

  • Excellent product after some TLC

    MP, 10/7/2017 Intro: This product comes unfinished. You will need a little elbow-grease in order to make this a usable item. Consider whether or not you have the items used to modify this machete (below) before you purchase.
    Sharpness: When it comes to purchasing sharp instruments in general, I have found that I need to hone the item when it arrives so I do not have a problem with this item arriving un-sharpened. The degree of bluntness mean that you will need several grades of rough sand paper on a flat surface before you move to the sharpening stones.
    Handle: Mine came slightly loose and I had to tap the rivets to set it. The wood is unfinished and I used a rasp to shape it a little, sandpaper, and tung oil to get it to my liking.
    Steel: Medium quality, which is great for the price. Holds an edge well, although I have only used it on soft vines thus far.
    Balance - The balance point is an inch away from the midpoint towards the handle. Although, I prefer a tip-heavy machete to reduce the work on the swing, I found that the balance point on this machete makes it easier to control.
    Sheath: None. I flattened a PVC pipe with a heat gun to create mine.
    Overall: This product comes rough and earns a 1 star. However, with some TLC it becomes an excellent product and would get 5 stars. Consider the work needed before you purchase, especially as a gift.
  • Dull But Potential There

    Charlie Floyd, 9/21/2017 While the knife seems to be well made with good steel I was disappointed when I found the blade was dull as flat rock. However, I think judicious use of a file and stone will correct that.
  • For the most part, good

    Joseph A. , 8/23/2017 I had to do some prep work on this knife before using it but overall, I would have to say that it's a good knife, and I'm sure I'll get a lot of years out of it. I use it for hacking back invasive vines in my small garden. Does the trick!
  • Not worth the money

    Stan B, 8/18/2017 This is a poorly made item. The blades were dull and unpolished. The handle was misaligned, ill-fitting and unfinished. I'm going to put on a new handle on these items. I'm then going to spend a lot of time polishing and sharpening these blades. If I was going to (and wanted to) build a bush knife myself, I would've bought a kit from a knife maker. Pass on this item.

    Thank you for your review on the Wood Handled Bush Knife. We're sorry to hear that you aren't happy with it. Please return it for a refund using the label which was included. We apologize for the inconvenience.
  • Pass on this unless you're willing to spend time reworking it.

    Steve Mason, 7/31/2017 Even at the low price, I feel this is a cheaply-made product. The heft is good, but the 2 halves of the handle were misaligned,and without any type of finish. The blade was so dull, I couldn't hack through a 3/4 " shrub after several whacks. Some time on a grinding wheel and whetstone will be necessary in order to use it.
  • Wood Handled Bush Knife

    Bill Myers, 6/27/2017 Great value for the price. Would be nice to have a sheath all the same it's a keeper.
  • Look Until You Find what you need.

    Philip, 6/25/2017 I now have Four Machetes, but THIS one is what I was looking for! It is impossible to know Balance on a blade for whacking your Back Yard Jungle, and I since I have occaisonal Assistance with that, I can off three different weights & lengths, but THIS one is My weight, My needs.
    I could Complain, that it did not arrive Sharp, but That is why I have a BENCH full of machines and Stones to Sharpen my Tools. I could complain that the handle was a bit fuzzy from No finish sanding, But I needed a larger handle for my hand, and so it is Wrapped with a stick to itself type tape, and no worry about loosing my grip on the handle! That it has No Hole to thread a leather thong or Para Cord through is a five minute task.and it is a "Personal Thought" not everybody likes a Machete to have a wrist strap, I do. Good Steel, I can tell by the sharpening I gave it. AND ALL for Five Bucks on Sale!!!!

  • Wise purchase

    Nicky, 5/29/2017 I have used a cheap machete and wanted something less disposable. This set is sturdy with a much better handle & blade. A very wise purchase!
  • Machete Shipping

    John Root, 4/3/2017 Great product for the price. I ordered 2 and they shipped one, but with one call, made it right and sent the other, no questions. Wonderful customer service. I'll be back for other items.
  • Good value for cost.

    Fernando Delgado, 3/31/2017 Nice weight. Could have been straighter (had a bend about midway of length). Blade needed some sharpening but at this cost not an issue.
  • Machete on sale

    William, 3/25/2017 What do you want for $6? Comes with no edge, but that can be handled. A bit of duct tape tales care of handle issues
  • Good value for the money

    Mark Bertolet, 2/28/2017 Handle needed some work. A few minutes on the belt grinder smoothing handle slabs, and the application of some Watco oil solved this problem. Gonna be trying this machete out on some brush as soon as Spring gets blooming for sure.
  • One for each hand

    Jefferson Lowe, 2/15/2017 This is an excellent bush knife, with a little effort I can grind off 1/8 of the opposite curve then sharpen that side and I will have a long sharp bolo knife. I'm sorry other folks hands are too dainty for the rough handle but that can be fixed with a rasp and sand paper. I bought two, one for each hand!
  • A $5 value

    Oskar Muriel, 1/20/2017 Like other comments, handle is rough, wide and bulky, and blade is needing sharpening...Major issue is handle.
  • For $5, a great deal

    Greg Nolan, 1/20/2017 Needs serious sharpening, and the handle will benefit from some work, but sturdy and at the price, a good deal. If you are working with it all day long, day after day, get a better one, but for occasional use, quite adequate
  • for $5 what do you expect

    Michael J, 1/19/2017 Good enough for around the backyard stuff. If was a true explorer I'd already have a better one.
  • You get what you pay for...

    Dani Lewin, 1/1/2017 This will be fine for the yard. My husband says he will need to wrap the handle with something so we won't get splinters from the cracked wood handle.
  • Okay Machetes

    Margaret Kelly, 9/24/2016 Haven't used these yet, but the handles are awfully rough on the hands. Don't know yet about the blades. The price was not too bad, so I guess I got what I paid for.
  • Meh

    William Clark, 9/18/2016 Fairly cheesy overall. Crude milling on a thin blade and a poorly matched, handle, but for the sale price of $5.00 it's okay. If you just need something cheap to thin out that kudsue, this is for you. No sheath at this price.
  • bush knife

    buddie morris, 9/8/2016 very good quality. handles could use some improvement
  • Cheap because they're cheap.

    Andrew M, 9/6/2016 Factory edge was very dull, required about an hour of sharpening for each blade before they were usable. Handle seems flimsy as it's just two pieces of thin wood riveted to the blade, I added some extra glue and wrapped it in athletic tape to make it more stable and comfortable. Two machetes for twenty bucks, you get what you pay for.
  • Worth the money

    Chuck, 9/1/2016 This is a cheap machete and sheath. The sheath is very thin material and will probably not last very long. The handle on the machete is barely finished and is too big for most hands. With the last two I bought, I took my rasp and cut down the handle as much as I could until it was flush with the tang. I am going to have to replace one of the rivets as the washer that holds it on came off and the rivet is soon to follow. On the other hand, the metal in the blade is spring steel and takes a decent edge. After all, I am not going to be doing eye surgery with it although in a zombie apocalypse I may have to do major brain surgery. For what I paid, it is worth the money. However, be advised for the low, low price of this piece of equipment you are not getting a top of the line blade.
  • Brush Killer

    Doug Fullilove, 8/3/2016 Good weight and well balanced.

  • Wood Handled Bush Knife

    Becky, 3/9/2016 For the price, this product is great.
  • Did The Job

    Todd, 8/27/2015 Can't complain for what I paid for it. Does the nasty jobs when called upon.
  • Great For Computer Hacking Too...

    W. A. Hardy, 12/18/2013 Very useful tool. Florida is fairly warm all year so the plant life can uppity. It also comes in handy with chance encounters with fauna too, like the mosquito. Here is a tip, use the flat of the blade for swatting, if you use the edge it requires a very steady hand and bandages.
  • poor design

    Bill, 12/16/2009 handle is very uncomfortable, I had to wrap it in leather. otherwise tool is basic, fine
