Machetes are wonderfully versatile tools, and are indispensable for practicing permaculture in many tropical and sub-tropical environments. That is not to say that they have no place in cool climates like the Rockies. A machete is a very affordable piece of kit that will serve you well if you give it the proper care. There are many ways to sharpen a machete depending on how one intends to use it.
Requirements to complete:
