Clint, Shlomo,

Thank you both for the information. The reason I was considering this purchase was that a friend of my ask about a machete a few days before the posting and at that price point I was going to buy it and give it to him. It however appears that this email campaign was not from the vendor, but someone who wished to amuse themselves.

James...

Check this site out.  This is a common brand of Machete widely used in Central and South America where machetes are like an extension of your arm.  This is a good quality machete:  http://www.survival-pax.com/Tramontina-22-Polymer-Handled-Machete.h...

In my professional opinion, Ontario makes the best machete and it is made in the "USA".  On their website it sells for about $30 but on ebay one seller has it at $22.95 with free shipping.  See this ebay advertisement:  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ontario-CT1-12-Traditional-Cutlass-8295-/40...

I tried it just to see what would happen.  It came up full price for me too with no way to get the reduced price.  I would suggest calling them and telling them you want the $7 price.

Sorry, I followed the links and tried to order and it came up full price plus shipping.  Maybe ordering by phone would be different.

That's not bad.  I know a lot of people have issues with 440 or even 420 on a big blade like this but if the blade is thick enough and the machete is used correctly, its really pretty good.  I wouldn't use it for heavy duty chopping but for clearing brush that would be an ideal chopper!

Indeed a fantastic price.  Does anyone know if it is 420 stainless or 1070 CS.

Comment by Jan Carter on February 19, 2015 at 11:10

That is a GREAT offer!

If you need a machete, Colonial Knife Corp. has a closeout special..  It is regularly $24.99 but while supplies last it is $7.00.  Here is the link.
