WW 11 Excellent machete. I have one and have used another many times by Collins as a suveyor which has all or near all of the style of the Mole & Sons. Very good quality and useful in doing what it does. Clear brush and small trees. Very much better than the Chatillion Bolo Machete. Very much similar to the ones that are currently used in the jungle under brush. Hope this helps. I have a pristine example of one and would not sell it for less than $ 120 [with sheath}. Mine does not have the copper wrapping. You have to keep the wood supple and I suggest I/2 Spirit of turpentine and 1/2 Lindeed oil mix. It will tighten up everything wooden.
