Pros: Finish, Handle Material, Weight, Materials, None
Cons: Sheath/Scabbard, Blade Sharpness
Looks good, but has a few issues.
I received the product today, and have been attempting to do some cutting with it for the past few hours. Good news, the handle is comfortable and the weight is appropriate for the size of the blade. The knife itself also arrived in good condition and feels quite solid. The bad news, the knife arrived dull, very dull. I know that a blade like this doesn't need to be as razor sharp as a smaller knife to cut well, but this thing was dull out of the box. Its disappointing as I actually asked KnifeCenter to check if the blade was sharp before shipping it to me, but apparently neither they nor the factory that produced this blade actually checked it before shipping it out. Secondly, the sheath that came with it does fit the blade, but only just. It was a struggle to get the sheathe working, and will probably take a considerable break in period for it to get comfortable.

K-TACT Kukri Review Update
Although, I advocated the improvement of adding a detachable Casstrom Sweden No. 3 Carabiner Dangler, Part #: CASSOS10110, and I have now replaced the stationary D-ring provided on K-TACT’s dangler, with the Casstrom No. 3, and it is a much better sheath for doing, so; I do not recommend it unless you have Kydex + leather sheath making experience (not rocket science, you can probably figure it out, but wasn’t as easy as sliding the Casstrom No. 3 Dangler into the leather belt loop). ***** ATTENTION: The kydex belt loop that transitions the dangler to the sheath is only 1.25” deep, and will not accomodate a 1.5” belt, if you had wanted to remove the dangler and use the Kydex loop. I re-formed the Kydex belt loop to except a 1.5” belt (1.675”-1.75” deep), and also accept the ¼” diameter Casstrom No. 3 Dangler using a cut length of door shim as the form, and performed the reforming of belt loop with a heat gun (no Kydex press needed, easy to do, can use hair dryer, too). Added two screws w/stainless washers just below the belt loop to stiffen up the Kydex belt loop. ***** WARNING: I found no evidence that thread locker was used on any of the screws on this sheath, you may want to look into that. ***** ALSO: If thinking of attaching a Tec-Lok, or some other alternative method of belt attachment, Condor did NOT drill Kydex Belt Loop attachment screw holes on center, 0.75” apart. ???? Good Luck with that. These and other necessary fixes to utilize the Casstrom No. 3, make the Kydex belt loop larger, and add thread locker to the screws were completed in about an hour. I also, modified the leather dangler belt loop to accept the No. 3 Dangler. If the dangler set up is not for you, and you don’t want to hassle with modifications, you may want to check out the Condor Heavy Duty Kukri, same knife w/ walnut scales (more comfortable) and leather sheath, no dangler. I am happy with K-TACT Kukri after the modifications to the sheath. It is now a more versatile sheath, and you can remove the dangler + D-ring when you tie it to your mule, and don’t want the dangler jangling around. Attach a Maxpedition EDC Pocket Organizer to the outside of sheath (Part #: MX0246K), and you can have your companion knives, stone, first aid kit, fire starts, etc. riding right on your sheath.

My favorite chopper
I live in the Philippines and I have this Kukri about a month, I like it very much. The blade it self is excellent, it came not very sharp but that was no issue for me. It took me about 3 minutes on my regular wet stone and it was razor sharp.The sheath is also a Okay for me. It is not the best kydex/plastic sheath but it secures the blade very well.
