Benchmade's 153 Jungle Bolo is a Warren Osborne design that really excels in the wild. This large and capable chopper benefits from a thick full-tang 1095 spring steel blade. The Bolo blade profile carries considerable weight at the tip for effective chopping, while the orange Santoprene handle provides the user a confident, forgiving grip. The 153 Jungle Bolo includes a leather sheath with belt loop.

Was looking for a shorter machete with a thicker blade and this is perfect. Like the weight forward design of the Bolo blade, makes chopping easy. Sharp out of the box and the grip on the handle is great. Tried it on branches and vines and it works well. Also, if you're careful, you can use it as a kind of draw blade. Haven't used it to baton yet, but should work fine with the thicker blade. For the price and also being a Benchmade, you can't beat it. Thanks Blade HQ for the great service and quick shipping.

I ordered this on pre-order and had a chance to use it on a camping trip and it lived up to its name. The blade has enough weight on the top to chop branched with ease and the blade can withstand whatever your backpacking needs might be. I didn't get a chance to split any logs but I am sure the blade can handle whatever you throw at it. One major advantage to my backpacking weight conscience friends is its lighter then the Buck Hoodlum or the Ontario Rat but I am confident it can handle any tasks you need out in the wild.
