Great Value !! Reviewed by Clint Walker on Oct 19, 2015   5 out of 5

As soon as the first one I ordered arrived. I ordered another. The quality is great for the money.

This piece is an excellent choice for a multi-purpose blade. It is well-balanced about four inches in front of the grip. Long enough with sufficient weight to manage small trees and brush. Like any long blade, don't try to twist it if you get it stuck in a larger branch, just work it back out and be more careful, it is capable of building a good shelter frame out of smaller saplings and limbs. The steel seems to be a good balance for heavy blades, although I don't exactly know what the mix of UC8088 is. A proprietary mix by United Cutlery probably. Three inches of the tip needs more sharpening if you intend on the machete being used as a defensive blade. The main blade is excellent for camp use and has an edge angle that won't distort if you pay attention to what you're chopping and don't get sloppy. Before it arrived I thought the sawback would require a bit of modification in the handle. I was pleasantly surprised to see the sawback has "draw-teeth". That being the design, the grip is excellent for providing good purchase when drawing the sawback through a piece of wood. All in all this is an excellent camping or hiking outback blade. And at Budk it is about one-half the "MSRP" price. I'm pleased with it, and have owned other long knives that were not up to this multi-purpose design.

EVERYONE BUYS ITEMS TO SUITE THEIR NEEDS. I OWN THIS COLUMBIAN SAWBACK AND THE KUKRI TYPE WITH THE YELLOW HANDLES. EACH TIME I ORDERED, I GOT THEM ON BOGO SALES. SO I AM PLEASED ON BOTH ACCOUNTS! I HAVE NO PLANS FOR JUNGLE TRUDGING. THESE ARE MY PLAN B TOOLS AND NOTHING MORE. I CAN SHAVE WITH ANY OF THEM NOW I RAN THEM ON SOME GOOD DTEEL AND RAZOR STROP.NOT THAT I WOULD TRY TO, BUT YES THAT SHARP!



Bummed... Reviewed by Daniel on Jul 21, 2014   2 out of 5

I opted for this machete after I had ordered a BLACK LEGION GREEN KUKRI MACHETE. It seems it was out of stock at the time I ordered it so Budk offered to send me another type. I opted for this one. After reading some reviews here and on Amazon I am convinced I made a mistake. Reviews of breaking and warping blades and loosening handles are not difficult to locate. Maybe I will give this away to my stepson. One thing for certain, I would not trust this machete in a true survival situation. I still want the BLACK LEGION GREEN KUKRI MACHETE and I guess I will look for it here, hoping it comes back in stock. On a positive note, Budk has the best customer service I have ever encountered.



Alright Reviewed by Josh on Jun 09, 2014   1 out of 5

Worked amazing for awhile, however while cutting down a little tree smaller than the one in the video the blade snapped right in half perfectly, I mean can't expect too much for 20 bucks, it would be awesome to get one to replace this but then again don't wanna risk that happening again.. Overall would not buy again but was fun while it lasted.

I live on the edge of the woods and do a ton of hiking and camping. This machete has been awesome. Sharp blade and the sawback is excellent. Great value!

Great Starter Short Sword, err Machete Reviewed by Philip on Mar 17, 2014   5 out of 5

This is a great generic machete for anyone to get. It has a very comfortable handle, a paracord lanyard and basic nylon sheath. I have not put it through its paces yet or hacked my way from Rhodesia to Zimbabwe with it so I cannot attest to its durability. I wouldnt consider it terribly heavy (I also ordered a Hibben Rambo 4), but I can see where a shorter length machete would be lighter.

I love this machete! It is a beast at chopping. This machete is for anyone



COLOMBIAN SAWBACK MACHETE Reviewed by Bruce C. on Jan 20, 2014   5 out of 5

I own a Barteaux 16" & United Cutlery 18" Sawbacks, and an Ontario non Sawback, machetes; all with hand / fist protection and wide belt loops. The Barteaux has a thin, flexible blade, stated to reduce / eliminate binding while sawing, with tanto point, stated as carefully useable as a survival shovel / spade, NO sheath nor any offered, nor cordage for handle hole. The Ontario sheath has no blade retention strap nor handle hole cordage. Other than, perhaps, a sawback cutting binding issue and sharpening, The United Cutlery Colombian Sawback Machete and sheath are well designed and produced. They are complete AS IS. My only recommendation is that, as it is heavy, perhaps United should seriously consider a shorter, lighter weight version that will fit into a backpack. Other than this, The Colombian will be my primary on belt machete, with the Barteaux as a packed backup. Should United produce my recommendation, it will replace the Barteaux.
