But it was also ugly and dull so I thought I might as well have a shiny cheap machete instead of a dull ugly 5$ machete. right?

New.



After sanding with 150, 220, 320, 600, 800, 1000, 1200, 1500 and 2000. Then I took some mothers mag wheel and aluminum polish and polished it up. Not too bad for a 5$ blade. 20 $ worth of sanding and polishing on a 5$ blade....for some reason lipstick on a pig comes to mind...But hey, its shiny and I am a shine- o-holic.

Yep, this lamp reflection is the same as the one in the first pic...really.

That's awesome!
