Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
I've been a Kukri collector for over 30 years, have the Cold Steel 39 LGKT Kukri, Condor CTK255-10HC Kukri, a butload of traditional Kukri's, the Extrema Ratio N690 Kukri, a Damascus Kukri, and a few I made over the years. The Ontario is the Kukri I end up grabbing on a regular basis when I go backpacking. Many reviewers have already noted the comfortable grip, the easy to keep "shaving sharp" 1095 CS blade steel, nice ballance (in my hands, at least), fully agree. I am not in any way knocking the Cold Steel, Condor, or traditional Kukri's, very nice knives, but again, when I'm ready to "go", it's the Ontario I seem to constantly grab. I agree the supplied sheath sucks, but here's a dirty little secret for those interested.The Cold Steel 39 KGKT Kydex sheath fits the Ontario Kukri perfectly. I ordered a "replacement" Cold Steel Kydex sheath for, I believe $54 with shipping, from Cold Steel, I couldn't make a professional Kydex sheath for that much money. Hope that helps.....
