This looks great. It is sturdy and well-built, and it looks like it'll take a hard knock (or many) and hold together nicely. I expect it will need to be sharpened to get to that ideal edge, and I still have to take it in the back yard to test it with a rogue bush to see how the cutting edge fares, but I anticipate I'll be getting a couple more of these. If nothing else, it's seriously intimidating! For the price, it really can't beat. You never know what you might need it for!!
Not only good for clearing brush, but also a formidable close range personal defense item. I keep it with my Bear Grylls Ultimate gear bundle and BOB. I am good to go.
I ordered this gator machete for my son in law for Christmas to add to his survival supplies and it arrived today. The machete looks to be of very good, solid construction and one side is for cutting and one side is for sawing. It also comes with a heavy, rigid canvas sheath. Very good investment.
Does the job
We recieved this machete as a gift this last Christmas. It is well constructed and seems like it will do well enough. With that being said, I do not believe that it will not out last some of our other more expensive tools. Always remember that true quality will not always come cheep! Good machete to get ya started.

Low quality steel, the blade chipped and nicked on reasonably soft vegetation. I was not impressed. The saw worked well for the first few cuts but also dulled very quickly.
