One of the last Great US Made products, no BS
Normally US made products are inferior to Japanese, German, and Swiss made products, but this Kukri is exceptional. I'm 5 10" 220 and in pretty good shape and with a fresh sharpened edge I can easily cut 2'' to 2 1/2" hardwood limbs with one strong chop. Once you grasp the concept that the Kukri has a sweet spot like a baseball bat, you can level everything in front of you. One of my hunting buddies has the more expensive Cold Steel Kukri which are also quality products, but my KA BAR cost 1/3 the price and the KABAR is heavy and cuts much deeper. The handle is also a strong, non fracturing rubber that gives you a great grip and doesn't waste away while you use it. Put in your hand and you immediately feel like Denzel Washington in the Book of Eli and for me in a self defense, Zombie Apocalypse scenario I can say I will be the last man standing. Buy, it, its $50 so if my review is trash its not like you spent $250 on some custom fade trash knife.
