Cold Steel Gladius Machete

Post by DanHarris » Sat Aug 09, 2014 10:05 pm

Hi guys, this is my first review so far! I purchased the cold steel gladius machete as a test purchase to make sure the products were decent.

So far I am very happy, the blade arrived in a folded bit of cardboard which surprised me and initially had me worried but after opening it up I found it was packaged inside as well. The blade is surprisingly sharp which is a nice bonus and the sheath and blade itself are both of good quality. There are a few minor issues I have had with the blade, the main ones being the blade still having some of the black coating on the sharpened sections of the blade and also, there appears to be a mark on the blade left by the stitching of the belt loop. Other than that I'm very happy, especially considering the price of the blade itself.

For my next purchase I will be getting Orcrist :)

Also, will we see the Cold Steel Viking Sword for sale at some point on blades UK? I love the look of the sword and I would like to get one :)
