Tramontina machetes come from the factory with the scales not flush with the tang, an acceptable but unfinished edge, an as-stamped spine, and a rounded and unground tip. We've provided the option to bring them up to our standard.
If selecting the Special Grade option we will:
~Flush the scales with the tang
~Finish the edge to a thin convex which is brought all the way to the point
~Grind the spine square for tinder shaving and fire steel striking
~Shape the tip to a fine point (as much as is possible for a bolo!)
