Buy an Ontario in the length you want and a file. Harder just means harder to sharpen. You will strike rocks and other stuff in normal machete use.
The length depends on what you're cutting.
I use a 22" for up to around 4" and delimbing downed trees.
This orange handled version is what I use most. You can see it in the ground easily. Cut off the knuckle guard part, rough on the fingers.

Wouldn't the 18" be a bit handier?

If you're hiking & backpacking, yes.
I use mine at home on my property for general tree & brush clearing and maintenance and the heft and length of the blade helps a lot.

I do like Esee stuff but there is a massive difference in price between that and the Ontario. They use similar steels in the blade too.
