I bought a Harbor Freight machete for just 5 bucks. But did I make the right choice? I won’t say it’s garbage, but it’s definitely not the tool I would recommend for a jungle trip.
You never know when a disaster may strike (or plain old everyday necessity) so it’s best to be prepared at all times… that’s where a durable, multipurpose tool can really come in handy. Depending on where you live, a machete might be an excellent tool to keep on hand. I put this one through a lot of abuse, including chopping and sawing through branches and even hacking away at logs or boards. The steel help up well, no complaints. but the handle? Well that’s a different story… watch the video to find out more.
