I've had a Condor machete for a while, sharp as the devil's tongue! Love the thing, but recently it broke. So I contacted their sales dept. and they asked for a picture of the broken blade along with length. In a few days they had shipped me a replacement. I got it in a few days ago, and it's sharper than the last one! Cut myself on it (pretty good too!) before I got it out of the packaging! (well, that's out of the way!) Attached are pictures of both. The replacement is more handsome than the original! I have to say, I couldn't be happier with their product or service!
