Alrighty then. Enough about chuck norris and prime ministers.
I got my 5$ harbor freight machete and started sanding and polishing. Brand new, I think the best I could do against a zombie would be to give him a slight headache since the dam things (plural, I bought 4 to give as gifts) were so dull. But it was also ugly and dull so I thought I might as well have a shiny cheap machete instead of a dull ugly 5$ machete. right?
After sanding with 150, 220, 320, 600, 800, 1000, 1200, 1500 and 2000. Then I took some mothers mag wheel and aluminum polish and polished it up. Not too bad for a 5$ blade. 20 $ worth of sanding and polishing on a 5$ blade....for some reason lipstick on a pig comes to mind...But hey, its shiny and I am a shine- o-holic.
Yep, this lamp reflection is the same as the one in the first pic...really.
