Description

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 the best Kukris, like Cold Steel's 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. Cold Steel's Kukri Machetes are those workhorses. They are available in two sizes, the Kukri Machete that has a thirteen inch blade and the other, this new “Magnum” model that 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 their “top-of-the-line” models, 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.

This is my first purchase of 2021 and arrived very quick with no delays. Brand new out of the package, well made, very sharp not razor sharp, good sheath, made in South Africa. Definitely worth getting for over $20 anyone can afford. Get your Cold Steel's now because Cold Steel has been sold to GSM Outdoors and a lot of fans are so down about it. I hope GSM will still keep the same quality as before and will take a lot of time to get used to. The best thing it's still in it's original format and no complaints here and for over $20 definitely worth getting. I'm satisfied with my purchase once again and I will always buy from Bladehq. Thanks again.

Just as described. Great balance. Sharp edge cuts with ease. The handle is comfortable and absorbs impact, it is not slippery when wet. Excellent durability and quality.

South Africa makes excellent bush/machete type knives I feel. Quality and durability unquestionable! The sheath although adequate, has been greatly improved at least in this version I just bought!! I'd trust this
over any other machete! Far better than military machetes and comes already sharp.
Sharpening this is no problem-holds an edge for a pretty long time!
