After every use, the 18 inch machete blade should be wiped clean and sprayed with a permanent lubricant for example INOX not WD40 or RP7 (non-permanent lubricants). The blade should be sharpened with a sharpening stone and water, do not use a file or grinder ( this will alter the steel structure by heating it up). Finally the blade must be oiled after sharpening.

About Permaculture Tools.
The vision about Permaculture Tools came about 15 years ago, at The Permaculture Research Institute working with old style hand tools from around the world. Many people would ask where they could buy one of these or one of those and the answer was always “the country they came from” or “good luck finding one of these old tools in a garage sale”. This is where the vision came from; wanting to supply fellow permaculture practitioners with good quality hand tools that where easy to access without having to go to some obscure country to buy them.
