I just use a $30 brush axe from ace hardware. It can handle anything from 4" saplings to thick briers much easier than any thing pictured. Does it look cool? Nope! I always have one in my truck when deer hunting. I just mark a trail to the deer with surveyors tape. Go get the brush axe and cut a trail to retrieve the deer. Buy the model with a hickory handle. You will get 10 years of use out of it. I just use a belt sander to keep an edge on it.

I have respiratory problems and it takes a healthy man to haul and pile the brush as fast as I can cut it when clearing underbrush.

This was a 5 year old thread that was resurrected in 2012. Is this the second coming?

I have four OKC machetes at last count. If you ever have to clear land, don't leave home without two (one for yourself and one for a friend or family member who forgot his). I've beat the tar out of these things and, apart from a little rust, they're every bit as functional as the day I bought them.

The 22" model will give you the 4"-10" extra inches of blade length you said you wanted and prices are very reasonable (5" for the 18" model and 9" for the 22" model).

For sun-up to sun-down swinging, I prefer the 18" model. YMMV.

I've never used or even thought about using a saber or cutlass for land clearing. If it works, then it does, but it would be an awfully expensive brush clearing tool. For my $20, I'm going to use a machete.
