We go through machetes pretty quickly so I buy them by the dozen directly from Corona. Its not tacticool but the steel is pretty darned good and never had one break on us. They have three choices, the most expensive one is just over $10. The handles on the regular machete is plastic and has that grippy rubberized stuff on it. Never had a handle break on us either.
I have gotten some that are from Colombia and some that are from China- both with the Corona name. Interestingly the Chinese ones are noticeably heavier (thicker blade) and we prefer those over the Colombian ones. We do have to sharpen them but that is no problem. Keep one in each vehicle and a few spread out in convenient places.
