    I've been a cold steel fan for some time now, and have an assortment of their blades. A few months ago I bought their Gladius practis sword which is made of hard plastic. It was neat, but then I saw they had the Gladius Machette. It looked good on line, and for $50 bucks thought I try one. I was afraid it would feel light and cheap. Not so. Just call me Bigguth Dickuth. It comes with sheath, now all I need are some innsolent Goths.

    When I go into the back yard, the vines and weeds all bow down.

    two thumbs up!

    Now I see how Rome kicked so much butt.

    I was looking at that last nite! Cold Steel ,right? Glad to hear it's not thin and cheap. i may have to order one now. Very cool design, but those plastic handles would get replaced. Thanks

    "and most importantly, comes compete with a sturdy cordura sheath and belt loop."

    :D I found out a long time ago, the best thing to take to a knife fight is someone else. I'd rather face the wrath of a scorned woman than cold steel.
