    You limbed that in no time. How heavy is that machete? And how long have you been using one?

    How long he's had it was answered in the vid, assuming my memory hasn't headed south yet. (Then again, maybe it has ---)

    About 12 to 13 years I used a estwing camp ax before the two handed machete I like the two handed machete better and from a distance it looks like a rifle which works like the native American gun stock war club from a distance the other tribes wouldn't want to fight thinking it was a gun

    Cool video, Bishop! Now, is that section that you end up with all edible! What's it taste like? We don't (to the best of my knowledge) have swamp cabbage palms up here in the PNW.
    Going by the sound of the impact of the tool on the outer portion of the fronds/trunk it sounds like hard, dry wood. Slow burning, little smoke?
    We've seen reports on the wildfires down there. I hope you and yours are out of the danger zones! SRG

    Yes what you end up with is what's called the bud or the head it has bitter that you cut off then you start cutting the tender part out until it gets hard then boot the cut boot cut boot cut in till there's no more tender part you can eat it raw or cooked I like mine cooked with chicken bouillon powder salt pepper and a pound off bacon goes with beef chicken pork fish shrimp oysters clams deer hell it goes with everything
