Last year at that time I decided to clean one bush-overtaken garden. For the purpose however I chose rather strange method. A machete.

Why? Well... at a fencing meeting months before I had got ashamed because of my short sword techniques, so I was about to revenge myself and push that garden as a training. One year later the garden is again in bushes, so I guess I'll have myself another swinging month.

And my love for machetes and other short TOOLS will never get away. Nothing more rewarding in my soul than the feeling that my bushwacker is my best friend in disaster scenario as well(like when the wife cooks something awful)

I to am a huge fan of the machete. I have a tendency to carry one over a hatchet. Do you have a favorite style?

Elk Ridge makes a really nice one. I love them also. Mine has the type of handle like a pirates sword and can protect your hand if you were fighting with one.

The Brazilian straight suits me best, but if its smaller size, rather leaf shaped or just using the Khukri. However, I use the khukri for different things and its too heavy for me to call it machete. I would love to try some different designs as well, like the parang, or the traditional bolo, but that's maybe when I meet a cheap smith forged piece for sale around.

I used to make em kind of as a hobby. Used lawnmower blades and old leaf springs.

Always liked the bolo or kukri myself.
