Corneta machete Nr.66 by Weyersberg, Solingen
« on: May 22, 2013, 07:05:12 PM »


This vintage Corneta machete from the '50's or '60's of the previous century was made by Weyersberg in Solingen, Germany.
Later the brand was sold to South-America, i think to Imacasa.









The machete was completely unsharpened when i bought it, but when i saw it's tapered blade and felt the balance i just knew it had to have a good edge.
Reprofiling was done on the Tormek and refining to a slightly convex and razorsharp +/- 30 degrees inclusive edge on the grit 60 & 180 Rubber Wheels.
The chromed blade is quite flexible and the steel is both harder as well as more wear resistant than previous machetes i've sharpened.
One of these days i'm going to find out what it can do.

Specs:

Overall length: 21.3 inch (54,0 cm)
Blade length: 16.0 inch (40,7 cm)
Blade thickness: tapering from 2,25 mm before the handle to 1,25 mm just before the point.
Steel: chromed carbon steel
Handle material: Natural horn with brass rivets
Weight: 307 grams

It looks almost too nice to use 

Interesting to hear that the steel is good  :salute: (in the past I've always thought that a chromed blade was hiding rubbish steel  :think: )


Everything’s adjustable
