The Cold Steel Royal Kukri Machete design makes it potent on the battle-field and in bushcraft as a survival tool. The matte black coated 1055 steel blade is uniquely shaped for powerful cutting action. The polypropylene handle keeps the blade in the hand and helps to resist centrifugal forces. The Royal Kukri Machete comes complete with a Cor-Ex sheath for ease of carry and convenience of use.
My first machete and seems like a very good one. Sharp out of the box and stays that way. The different shape takes some getting used to but cuts very effectively once you learn the tricks. A bit heavy maybe but very stout. Sheath is well constructed and good for storage and transportation (and for safety if practicing MA) but could use a leg strap to help with actually carrying in the field. Well worth the price.
