    I got one of these not too long ago,and although it is good quality and thick steel,that's about the only good thing about it.It don't come close to my machete.It takes a long time to cut through small tree limbs.For it's size it isn't bad(it's about 13 inches)It just don't have the cutting power of an 18+ inch machete.

    Yep, your experience pretty much sounds like mine.
    I do truly admire above most the Gurkha soldiers who originally carried this type knife but I also recognize the fact that they carry and use this strange blade every day whereas most of us (meaning Americans) don't even use a pocketknife daily.
    I'm a trained knife fighter, and I do see why this knife is great. It does take daily use and familiarization though. I've had mine (A more traditional model) since I was 15, and still prefer a machete for cutting brush. That's what machetes are for.
    I have a nice broadsword with a proper edge too, it still doesn't do well in brush. It's for cutting off a different type of limb.
    Knife fighting? Now there we get into a debate...
