A machete for 5 bucks??? Is it plastic? If not, I want one.

They actually arent that bad. Mine lasted over a year. But you have to sharpen it yourself, because they come with an edge that couldnt cut a microwaved peep in half.

Handle is plastic and it does need an edge.
Good for brush clearing and zombie skulls

I found them on amazon. Then I found others on youtube that bought one and sharpened it up. Then I keep looking and found this.Full Tang Fixed Blade Serrated Machete Ninja Sword
It has the serrated edge also! This way I figure I can cut off the arms and jaw and make them pets... um...Now that I typed that out, it sounds weird.

Maybe I will get the 5$ one...

I am going to get the cheap one, sharpen it up and make a wooden handle for it. Sounds like a cheap, easy project. PLUS I will be ready for the ZA. a win win!

20 at walmart and 50 online? gotta go to walmart. Glad I did not buy one of the axes I see at the hardware store every time I go upstate! This one is way nicer.
edit
