The Gator Kukri Machete is based on a centuries old tool native to Central Asia. The Kukri has 3 parts to its blade; a pointed tip for poking, a wide midsection for chopping, and a narrow area near the handle for whittling and carving. The kukri is the tool of central Asia, traditionally carried for protection and as a utility tool. The Gator Kukri features full tang construction combined with the ergonomics and tactile feel of Gerber’s legendary Gator grip. Included nylon sheath features belt loop and d-loop for easy carrying.
I never owned a machete so I wasn't sure what to buy. After watching a bunch of reviews on machete styles I decided to go with ta kukri type and I'm not disappointed in that decision. I did not want to spend a fortune but I didn't want junk either so I figured that Gerber was a trusted name and they had a mid-priced highly rated machete. I am pleased with the overall construction and believe it is a good value.
