http://www.coldsteel.com/gladius-machete.html 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.
