There’s no single edged weapon that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. It’s true that some of the best Kukris, like our Gurkha model, can be somewhat expensive, and while that “thoroughbred” performs extraordinarily well for the money that it costs, it sometimes seems that what’s required is a good, inexpensive, “workhorse” model.
Our Kukri Machetes are those workhorses. They are available in two sizes, one has a thirteen inch blade and the other, our “Magnum” model, has a whopping seventeen inch blade. Both are ready to plow through the toughest chores life can dish out. Each features the distinctive weight-forward balance of our “top-of-theline” model, and always present their edge on an angle so they’re guaranteed to “bite” deep with every stroke. Additionally, they come complete with a sturdy Cordura sheath! They’re a solid value, ready for long, hard work.
The machete has proven to be the ultimate outdoor and survival tool. It will cut, chop, slash, or smash just about anything you can put in front of it. It can be used to kill both fish and game and will also field dress and prepare them for the table as well. And when you look at its meager cost, it's got to be one of th best bargains for the money.
These blades are made out of 1055 Carbon Steel with a tough spring temper and are surfaced witha black, baked-on anti-rust finish. Each Cold Steel® Machete comes with a good utility edge which, with just a little work, can be made hair shaving sharp.
The tough, polypropylene handles of our machetes are designed to provide a comfortable secure grip and they are rugged enough to resist chipping, cracking or breaking so they last practically forever.
