Working Up a New Machete

If you've read this blog in the past then you know that I'm a big fan of the machete.

I received a standard Ontario Military 18" machete and sheath in the mail today and dropped the point a bit, stripped the black coating with Barkeeper's Friend (BF,) and oiled the blade as patina was forming as I was working from the water and the chemical reaction with the BF. I'm not exactly sure how this project is going to progress but I suspect the handles will be removed and replaced next and then off to get a custom sheath made up.

 Thanks for reading,
