There's no single edged weapon that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. Of course it's true that the best Kukris, like the 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.
The Kukri Machete IS that workhorse. This large knife blade features the distinctive weight-forward balance of our "top-of-the-line" models, and always presents its edge on an angle so it's guaranteed to "bite" DEEP with every stroke. This knife, with its included, sturdy Cordura sheath is a solid value-a bargain priced Kukri- ready for long, hard work.

The kukri does not come sharpened from the factory very well. The curved edge takes practice to sharpen well. Once done it is an excellent machete, one of my favs. Mine has taken serious abuse. For the money it is better than any alternative I know. Should come factory sharpened though IMHO.
