    This review is from: Schrade SCHKM1 Large Full Tang Kukri Machete Fixed Blade Safe-T-Grip Handle (Sports)
    This is the best machete in the $50 price range, hands down. I collect a lot of knives and I use them. This blade will hold up to everything you would ever need it for practically. It is great for outdoor work and camp chores and is designed to work very nicely as a combat weapon.
    Specs
    The blade is full tang and constructed of 3cr13 steel. A good choice because it still had a good hardness but is soft enough to withstand constant high impact use. The blade is 13.3 in long and 1/8 in thick. Most machetes are 1/10 at best. The nice thick spine ensures durability. The blade design is a time tested and proven classic that dominates when it comes to efficiency. It’s bigger belly and curved shape allow for maximum chopping power and quickens the time it takes for a swing to make contact. It has a nice tough powder coating on it. Not the smooth thin powder coating that looks like a layer of paint, this is thick, rough, and durable powder coating. (In all the abuse my schkm1 has been through the powder coating has not worn at all.) The handle is the Schrade safe-t grip and it is amazing. It is super ergonomic and is very small designed to comfortably fit almost any size hand. It is long enough to choke up on for slicing or slide your hand to the lower part of the handle which changes in shape to accommodate a tighter grip for heavy chopping. The curvature of the handle added to the handle shape result in the slight difference in hand position to equal a significant change in blade weight distribution and chopping power. The sheath is extremely well built nylon. It is double stitched at all the seams and riveted in strategic locations for added strength. It comes with a pouch attached to the sheath that contains a ferro rod and a diamond stone sharpener. It comes with a shoulder strap, thigh straps, and two loops secured to the sheath for strapping to a bag, vest or belt.
    All in all this is an amazing blade. Well constructed is an understatement, Schrade really blew me away with this one. And to get this quality and the accessories for this price is insane. I honestly expected to be dissapointed in this blade and I tried to find a flaw, I failed. It feels better in the hand than any of my other machetes and that includes condor, cold steel, kabar, and others. And I couldn’t believe how easy it chops through trees and wood. I do a lot of chopping wood with machetes and I’ve never had one that could cut through some of the things this one has.
    I read review after review and watched even more videos before getting any blade and I’m always a skeptic. Even when I see great reviews I’m skeptical of that persons opinion. Are they being honest? Do they know what they’re talking about? Well, if you’re like me then please take it from someone who understands, this is the blade you want, and it is worth every penny. You will not be disappointed. I would easily pay $70 for this.

    comes with a decent edge, chops very well, scabard is awsome and comes with a diamond sharpener ferro rod, and is relitvly easy to sharpen. the only complant i have is at the bottom of the edge one side of the bevel goes down further than the other, but its not that noticble and can be easily fixed, but other than that its a very good quilty blade.

    This review is from: Schrade SCHKM1 Large Full Tang Kukri Machete Fixed Blade Safe-T-Grip Handle (Sports)
    I purchased the Scharde, (SCHKMI) from Amazon in November 2015. When I received it I opened the box, inspected the knife and stored it away until this Wednesday 2/24 when my nephew ask to see the knife; when sliding it back into the sheath it almost cut the end of my finger off. After returning from the ER; upon inspecting the sheath I saw the bottom half had not been stitched.
    I have photos of the defective sheath as well as the injury I sustained. This is the email I sent to TAYLOR BRANDS.They sells this knife and many others on AMAZON. After contacting TAYLOR BRANDS, they sent me a email stating they will start an investigation.That was two weeks ago. I still have not heard back from them. I got a call from their insurance co.. I told them, I just wanted the cost for the ER bill that my insurance would not cover. They told me they have to see if there were other complaints with this sheath. Really, it only takes one; I got proof of that. So I am not asking for much. I am a fifty seven old man. I am not worried about the scar or that I may not get all the feeling back in my finger.I will give a update when or if I hear from TAYLOR BRANDS.
