View Full Version : Sharpening a Martindale Birmingham Machete

So figured I would try my hand at sharpening the Machete I received as a token.
The total blade length is about 20", and about a 4" cutting edge towards the tip. The rest of the blade is just made for whacking **** up.
Here's a few minutes of fun I had sharpening this beast.
Used a 1k Japanese water stone.
