Cold Steel 80NTK Chaos Kukri Fixed 12.5" SK-5 Blade, Aluminum Handles, Secure-Ex Sheath
CS80NTK: 80NTK Chaos Kukri
Today's military operators carry the most advanced gear in human history, but a high-quality blade is still essential equipment on the battlefield. For these discerning customers, Cold Steel has created the Chaos series of hard use tactical fixed blades.
Inspired by the trench knives carried in the World Wars of the 20th century, Cold Steel is updating the concept with some of the most fearsome historic blades to ever grace the battlefield.
The kukri blade is one of the most feared in history, expertly wielded by the Nepalese Gurkha regiments who earned it that reputation. Unlike a straight blade, the downward angle of the blade creates a sweet spot where force is amplified allowing the blade to slice while it chops. This allows the kukri to "punch above its weight" and inflict terrible damage.
The 80NTK Chaos Kukri's blade is constructed from SK-5 carbon steel, allowing it to survive significant thrashing and it's durable flat grind makes it fearsome in use. It also transitions well to trail clearing and camping environments. It comes with a fantastic sharp edge right from the factory, so it is ready to rock straight out of the box.
The Chaos features a split D-ring handle constructed of 6061 aluminum. Not only does this signature trench knife feature protect the user's hands from slippage and incoming attacks, it also provides a striking surface for combat situations. Likewise, the butt of the knife features a deadly tapered pommel to concentrate the percussive force of a hammering strike.
As good as the blade is, you need a way to carry it, so Cold Steel sees fit to supply a tough Secure-Ex sheath. Here at KnifeCenter, we especially appreciate that it is both MOLLE-Lok and Tek-Lok compatible. This rough-and-ready item also comes with adjustable Cor-Ex belt loops and retaining straps, ensuring maximum safety and retention. The sheath can also be customized to nearly any preferred attachment, thanks to extra grommets and slots along the edges.
The Chaos series combines maximum safety and security with extreme performance and combat potential. Equip yourself with one!
