The other day I used my Modified 12 inch Ontario machete to harvest a large piece of Cedar for several projects I have in mind. Normally this would be done with a saw and an axe but since I own neither (here in the US) I used the machete. In my opinion the machete will never replace the axe, hatchet, or saw in the northern forest but it can be pressed into service and get the job done. I don't say anything in this video because there really isn't anything to say. I just shut up and cut. The video demonstrates chopping, splitting (w/ baton), and shaping using the scandi grind at the base of the blade.
