The $20 Ontario 18″ Military Machete Review with wood chopping, bamboo cutting, & boring stories

The Ontario 18″ inch Made in USA Military Spec machete is one of the best values in a latin style machetes for about $20. It’s tough, durable, and can handle all your hacking and slashing needs even if your name isn’t Jason Vorhees. I chop wood (not recommended) slice through bamboo, whack the bushes, and take swipes at a Christmas tree- like the Lord intended. If you like videos of grown men acting like a dumb teenager with a sharp object, then this is a perfect video. Please do not attempt to recreate anything in this video- it’s for entertainment purposes only. There are excellent machete instuction videos on the internet, that show you how to avoid injury. This is not one of them.

Troy Wheatley says:

I got myself a killer machete on a trip to Brasil years ago called Tramontina, LOVE that thing

Michael Knapp says:

As usual, another cinematic masterpiece. One question does come to mind. How come we don’t see anyone testing machetes for what they were designed for. Cutting vines, liana’s, and typical jungle growth, along with certain crops??. Temperate zone chopping is best done with a good hatchet, large knife like the RTAK, Junglas or any of the big Schrades or a large Japanese nata. Keep the machete for the jungle, crop harvesting(pineapple,banana,etc) or Danny Trejo movies.

Glen Williams says:

Hung for treason?

Ordinary everyday guy says:

The advice about the bra and the dryer…and the shit-eating tree reference…that’s YouTube poetry right there. You will be quoted and honored for these things one day in those books that quote shit and honor people.

Fizisheswa says:

I own this machete (take a drink) and it is more of a heavy knife for me. I use it to cut wood more than brush and it is “dope”. Keep ups the good reviews and humor. Love PBR! Cheers

“A dream and a monster at the end of it”… Reminds me of the scene at the end of episode 3 of True Detective. The bit with the nut job in dirty underwear and a gas mask. Every likes a reference to popular culture right?

Thomas Leaf says:

while the lack of jimping is a huge disappointment this is the same machete used by Billy in Predator so it’s tactical as fuck. And hanging christmas trees are the new hanging bodies in a gibbet. true story.

NWA Adventures says:

Best damn machete on the planet if you ask me. But you didn’t ask me so who cares.
