Solid, but heavy
The heat treatment seems to be just as good as the other Forged Warrior blades i have. I am really liking this company. One draw back is that the weapon is UNECESSARILY heavy. It is just long enough to be a two handed weapon and the weight seems to encourage it. Two pieces of steel sandwich the tang just as wood or micarta do for swords and knives. Replacing these would give you less weight and added material to work with if you have a shop. In materials alone, a great value. Zero complaints about the wrap or the blade itself. As the previous reviewer stated, the sheath for the blade cannot be secured but it is well built. I prefer the wrap on this one and the Forged Warrior Jungle long knife over the one on the 2 machetes with suade wrap

Cheaper than Zombie Tools Reaper
The Zombie Tools Reaper is 6 inches longer and 12 ounces heavier. However, the Reaper runs $584. Do the math. This is a much better deal for a similar style weapon. It is a two handed weapon. It is sharp. One drawback is the wrapping. Mine came with one end loose. The epoxy or glue was not sticky enough. I fixed it with duct tape. In fact, I put duct tape at both ends just in case. The sheath is okay but could be better. There is no snap or anything to keep it on. I do recommend this over Zombie Tools as you are getting good steel at a better price.
