Theres no single edged weapon that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. Its 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 whats 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 theyre 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.
