I think I want one of each and the price is right. What say you all?

Slash Away! :twisted:

Amazon still has links. If they didn't Instapundit would be out of business.

I've got one of these and it is da'bomb for general limb lopping. I keep it under the hood of my Mule. If what you're looking for is a good, general purpose machete, I recommend it highly.

I just thought it was cool that they were making a Gladius and Cutlass.

The gladius machete, while likely less stout than an actual gladius, is still likely more stout than the pocket knife anyone else is carrying. It kinda screams "Vault Dweller" to me, in a cool way.
