With this knife in hand it can mean the difference between survival and surrender further defining the knife you need when you need a knife.
This kukri is awesome. The blade is straight and came extremely sharp. It balances roughly around 2.25 - 2.5 inches up the blade from the handle. The shape was clearly well thought out in the designing process, as most Kukri users and enthusiasts agree - the leaf belly and prominent curve is the way to go. It is hard to find any other kukri under $100 with this shape as your goal, and this well made.
It feels great in either hand and is comforting to know it is machine-made here in the USA (“Handmade” from “somewhere other than USA” means its not bound to certain laws and exempt from anything of your disliking because, well, it was handmade.)
The ONLY REASON this knife does not get 5 stars is because the sheathe is awful and y’all know it. But the incredible design of the blade and quality for the price evens it out. Luckily, so many people have come to this exact conclusion on this knife, that custom sheathes for this particular one are everywhere online.
