With all of the forest fires going on right now, I have been giving serious thought to my machete situation at home. I think it may be time to upgrade to the Woodman’s Pal® and retire my old WalMart blue light special. The Woodman’s Pal® features a 1/8” thick x 10 1/2“ high carbon steel blade hardened to Rockwell C47. What this means to you is, it will keep its edge through hours of chopping, and will withstand extremes in temperature. This particular version also features a leather wrapped handle with a knuckle guard to protect your delicate little hands. Go get one today!
