The Gaucho Grind

The Gaucho Grind’s edge will be much sharper and perform better than any factory sharpened machete you can buy off the shelf. We start by grinding and shaping the whole edge back to a fine thin convex shape that’s just right for our harsh Aussie bush. We then sharpen just the edge (micro bevel) so it will slice thin unsupported material as well as chop heavily into woody branches.

It’s called the Gaucho (Cowboy) Grind because it’s a no frills but 100% work ready edge. It’s about as good an edge you could ever need when using a machete for general purpose hard work. If you’re using it properly, you will be touching up the edge a few times over a full days hard work with a file or sharpening stone. There is no point in paying for a polished edge if its going to be a workhorse.

This style of edge suits your basic sharpening equipment. We generally point beginners towards this setup. It’s a forgiving edge to learn how to sharpen and maintain a machete. What you learn on this setup translates to just about any single edge cutting tool or knife.
