I've hacked through miles of brush with a 20"-22" wood handled machete (similar to the one below) over the years. A good aim and proper technique are quite important. Also, knowing how different plants react to the machete helps. Not everything should be cut in the same manner.

22" blade
I've use this for many years. Good steel, good edge.
It may look rough, but don't get in it's way...lol. Still holds a good edge and has backbone. Lots of miles on this one...


I like the hooked handle. Keeps hand in place when swinging or chopping. Designed so it won't fly out of your hand...


I made sheath years ago...

I have the Cold Steel Magnum,edge isn't the greatest but with a little file work it's hard to beat for the price,think I paid $22 or 23 shipped over on the big auction site...
