Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Finish
what a tool!
I own a small farm and have put the Kukri to good use. I have completely destroyed a number of brushy areas of canes and small trees. It fits my hand well and has a great Balance, there IS truly a sweet spot. Cutting 2/3 inch trees? Works like a charm. Beautiful knife/beautiful tool. Cons? A bit of the black finish was missing, but I mean, who cares. Scabbard is a bit awkward but then again who cares. It will smooth out with use.

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.
