purchased cas/hanwei before and liked them, but this is just garbage, soft steel, no edge holding, handle broke in about 3 mins and the butt plate on the handle cut my hand

Cons: Blade Sharpness, Weight, Materials
It needed some work.
I have one of these and I have to admit that it does tale some work... I started with a file and finished with a 200 grit diamond type bench stone and never really was able to get an edge on the curved section with the stuff I presently have to work with... There is an edge where the blade makes contact when chopping and it is great for that...If you don't mind spending some time spending some time completing the job started you will find this Kukri to be an excellent tool. It will out chop a machete and can be used as a draw knife for removing bark and shaping post oak saplings for shelter poles, makeshift spears and walking staffs.

Mine was not so good!
Blade was unfinished. I hand-ground and sharpened it, hoping the steel would take a good edge. It did not take a good edge.
