I recently purchased 2 if these machetes from Blade HQ to give as Christmas presents. While doing the final sharpening, some incompetent person at your factory ground down the edge to what looks like an axe edge and ruined the primary edge bevel that was already there before they worked on it. Now I have to regrind the primary bevel to put a good edge on it. I did not buy this machete to practice my blade grinding. I have an Ontario 18" saw back machete from 20 years ago and the edge bevel \ profile was great when I got it. Please retrain your machete sharpener because they have no idea what they are doing and they are ruining your product before it even leaves the factory. I wish I could include pictures in this review.
