CS97KMS: Kukri Machete
Cold Steel

There’s no single edged weapon that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. Of course it’s true that the best Kukris, like our LTC and Gurkha models, can be somewhat expensive. While those “thoroughbreds” perform extraordinarily well for the money that they cost, it sometimes seems that what’s required is a good, inexpensive, “workhorse” model.
Our Kukri Machete IS that workhorse. It features the distinctive weight-forward balance of our “top-of-the-line” models, and always presents its edge on an angle so it’s guaranteed to “bite” DEEP with every stroke. This knife, with its included, sturdy Cordura sheath is a solid value—a bargain priced Kukri — ready for long, hard work.

Excellent bushcraft tool
I live in Oregon and the vegetation is mixed hardwood and evergreens. The material is tough to cut, normally requiring a hatchet. A hatchet is too heavy to carry. The Cold Steel Kukri does the work of a hatchet. Machette blade steel is too soft. The edge will roll under cutting hardwood. The Kukri is made of hardened knife steel and will not roll under. It has plenty of weight to do the work. Am excellent all-purpose tool and a real bargain at this price. Handle is no-slip, although you should attach a thong for safety. A hole is drilled through the handle for that purpose. Adequate sheath. The blade comes plenty sharp. The blade finish resists rust. I use it in the woods, clearing trail and around the property chopping blackberry and noxious weeds and brush.

Pros: Blade Material, Materials, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Right sized. Great heft and feel. Handle could use hockey stick tape, or use gloves, good and secure regardless. The weight forward design really kicks in debranching small, felled trees. I cleaned the edge up with a hard Arkansas stone (also from KnifeCenter). Razor edge not required and 1055 steel wouldn't hold it anyway. FYI the handle is small diameter but does not detract.
