Combat Ready Battle Cleaver CUMA Knife Fixed Blade Chopper Black G-10

The C.U.M.A. Battle Cleaver is a Waysun "Johnny" Tsai design that makes just about everything else on the market seem a little less manly. The cleaver blade measures over 9" long and 2.25" across with hollow ground bevels on the primary edge and flat tip. The blade is Blackstone® coated 5160 steel with the Combat Ready logo on front and the CUMA logo on back. The full-tang handle is fitted with black G10 scales that are sized and machined to provide an ideal interface between you and the Battle Cleaver. The handle has a fire-drill hole on both sides and twin-triangle lanyard holes. This knife comes with a drop-down leg holster with stability straps.

Customer Reviews

Combat Ready C.U.M.A.
nicholas c. on Jun 16, 2021

I just received the C.U.M.A., It's very reasonably priced, super cool looking, made from a pretty heavy piece of flat-bar, I bought this as a birthday present for a sibling, time will tell regarding durability of construction and finish. I am extremely impressed by sheath/rigging that's included by the manufacturer, a fairly stout sheath/drop-leg rig. Very satisfied with the product, way more knife/accessory than the price would imply.

Very good
Marc C. on Dec 1, 2018

I just got mine and I think it's great however I may tick some off when I say this: it's NOT tactical knife it's a very good utility knife,the edge is thin and if you go hacking trees or trying to tear open a 55 gallon steel drum you'll be disappointed and may even break it. What you have is basically a modern version of the Chinese knife money,I can see chopping down small trees for a shelter,breaking up dead fall for a fire,cutting up meat that you catch et cetera so treat it like any good cutting knife with a fine edge and you'll be happy. The only thing I can say is bad is the scabbard is just serviceable,however for $39 I'm okay with that and I'll spend extra to get a nice kydex one made for it. If you go in the woods with it pair it with an axe and a small fixed blade and you can call yourself set for camping or survival.

Love it

When you open the box and hold this in your hand, you automatically feel like a badass. This is a huge knife with a decent amount of weight. Came fairly sharp and I love the mix with the main hollow grind and the secondary flat grind on the front. Just fantastic. If you buy this though, make sure you lock-tite the handle scales and put a lanyard on it. You get fatigued quickly with this and you wouldn't want this flying out of your hands. But for $45 you'll have a ton of fun and use out of it

Good knife
Roosevelt Y. on Dec 7, 2022

Overall great blade, can get dull quick, and handle came loose after a few uses, but such a great blade

What's it for?
Scott W. on Aug 21, 2021

Superficially it looks a bit like someone's version of the Jessica X which Schrade ruined by altering the saber grind to a hollow grind, a move that no one thinks was wise. This is promoted as a "battle knife," but almost no one has a use for a cheap battle knife or cleaver. I thought about getting in as a chopper since the specs say it has a flat grind which could be easily converted to a saber. But then the description says it has a hollow grind, in which case the same eejits that ruined the Jessica X are still at work somewhere...
