Cold Steel 97KMS Kukri Machete 13" Blade, Polypropylene Handle, Cor-Ex Sheath
CS97KMS: 97KMS Kukri Machete
If you were suddenly castaway on a desert island or stranded in the wilderness or a jungle, what's the one tool you would want at your side? The answer is a good machete. You see the machete, over the last three centuries, has proven to be the ultimate outdoor and survival tool. It will cut, chop, slash, hack, split, scrape, scoop, hammer, dig, crush, carve, whittle, crack or smash just about anything you can put in front of it. The machete also makes a deadly improvised weapon. It can be used to kill both fish and game and will gut, scale, filet, skin, quarter and butcher them for the table as well. And when you look at its meager cost, it's got to be one of the best bargains for hard earned cash in the world. In fact it's so inexpensive and useful that even the poorest peasant in South America or tribesman in Africa invariably owns one and counts on it as one of his most precious possessions.
There's no single edged weapon that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. 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 that workhorse. This is ready to plow through the toughest chores life can dish out. It features the distinctive weight-forward balance of our "top-of-the-line" models, and always present their edge on an angle so they're guaranteed to "bite" deep with every stroke. Additionally, it comes complete with a sturdy Cor-Ex sheath! It's a solid value, ready for long, hard work.
