What can you say, sharpen it on a grinder, and cut the brush down. I used it to clear some troublesom trash trees, vines, and the dreaded honeysuckle plant that was way out of control.
Works great. Comes with a sheath, so you can look like a mean dude clearing a path in the jungle.

Mine was perfect
I've seen negative reviews on this item on other websites. I disagree with all of them. Right out of the package I used this to cut down seven rows of dried cornstalks. About 350 feet of corn. This knife cut through them like butter. I was curious to see how many cornstalks I could cut in one swing. The answer was five. I ran the blade into the ground by accident at least four times but it still maintained it's edge.
After the corn I cut down several dried sunflower stalks. Anyone who has ever done any gardening knows how hard these can be to cut. I did run into a bit of trouble here. It was taking two swings to get them down and sometimes four but it still maintained it's edge.
When the work was done I decided to have a little fun. I had some overripe zuchinnis that I threw up into the air and then cut them in two as they were falling. I enjoyed watching the pieces flying off in every direction with little effort on my part.
I like good quality tools that reduce my effort and save me energy. I highly recommend this machete.

Handles break on fist swing. We did not use these for heavy brush clearing. Not my favorite buy.

Wonderful tool for the price
I have used this item for quick trimming of brush out back and trimming of pine trees used for the Holidays. It has performed well and keeps a decent edge. Would definitely recommend this as the cost vs performance ratio is outstanding.
