Default A bargain !

went out looking for a machete today, found one in my local fishing tackle shop and i recon it's a bargain.

New Tramontina in a horrid fake leather sheath ( a left handed sheath at that ! ) for 9.50 !! be rude to refuse at that price !!

Gonna go chopping in the garden tomorrow once I've sharpened it !

I like bargains !

Tramontinas are very good blades and decent steel..where did you get it?

How about here. Been thinking about cutting one of the Tramontinas down into a
short heavy chopper.
