The Martindales look nice and well made, never used one though.
And about those saw backed edge machetes. Definitely use extra care. If you hit something that the machete doesn't cut into at the wrong angel or awkward swing you may end up smacking yourself in the face with the teeth.
Yea, not sure I want something with teeth on the opposite edge. The Collins that I saw have the rubberized, molded grip.
