Ka-Bar Kukri Machete = one great knife
In my opinion, the Ka-Bar Kukri Machete is second only to the Cold Steel Gurka Kukri. Good steel,perfect weight and balance,very comfortable grip, reasonable sheath. For this price, this is a great buy from a great company. I already have a few and just ordered another from Knife Center (another great company).

what a tool!
I own a small farm and have put the Kukri to good use. I have completely destroyed a number of brushy areas of canes and small trees. It fits my hand well and has a great Balance, there IS truly a sweet spot. Cutting 2/3 inch trees? Works like a charm. Beautiful knife/beautiful tool. Cons? A bit of the black finish was missing, but I mean, who cares. Scabbard is a bit awkward but then again who cares. It will smooth out with use.
