Excellent for some tasks, not the best general bush knife
This tool fits my hand excellently. Great balance, but it comes up short in one critical task: cutting through brush. The belly is too far towards the rear, versus up front belly that you get with true machete designs. Swinging this kukri is more like swinging an axe. The better tool for this is the Kabar Cutlass, which I don't see on Knife Center's inventory.This kukri is best for static camp use in my world. It splits kindling better than any tool I've used for the purpose. Lay the rear rise of the belly on the edge of the kindling stick and baton the tip of the kukri. The blade shims straight down and through better than anything. This kukri is also an excellent digger, which should be considered when choosing a general bush tool.More axe-like than knife-like. A cleaver. Materials are excellent for the price. Very comfortable handle. Sheath is the usual nominal thing, nothing to fault Kabar for over any other company.

I tourtured this thing
This blade has been great. I've been using it for over 10 years now and it has never let me down. Still looks and cuts great. I would recommend this item to a friend.

Beast of a Blade
Use for about anything you can think of. Sheath...like most KA-BARs... is pretty weak. Therefore a 4, not a 5....knife alone is a 5.
