I made these to give to my sons when they get a little older. Blades are high carbon steel. Scales are Marble wood with brass pins. Scales are finished with BLO. Thanks to Danpaddles for the info he gave me a while back when I made a machete with wood handles. I’m hoping to try making my own blades at some point. Thanks for looking.

Thanks Ryan. Now I can’t wait to put a new handle on the machete.
