KA1280: 1280 Combat Kukri

KA-BAR Knives

This heavy-duty chopper gets its shape from its older sibling, the Kukri Machete. At about 80% the size of the larger version, the Combat Kukri performs just as well at clearing brush and small tree limbs, yet is a capable tactical knife. Its smaller profile makes it a little easier for toting around - at just shy of a pound, it's a more appropriately sized tool for combat carry as well.

It's tough to argue with the success of the world's most recognizable, time-tested, fixed-blade knife so KA-BAR did what any smart company would do, they didn't change the original design, they expanded upon it. The high-carbon, non-reflective black blade is epoxy powder-coated tests prove the finish is more durable than ever. The classic oval shape of the original KA-BAR remains and has been modernized with a material nearly impervious to sweat, chemicals, water and wear, Kraton G. The improved weight near the tip and kukri design shape lends the design to a much wider array of uses than the original fighting utility knife.

Kukri Light
This is a light, small kukri that is easy to carry.This is not a wood processing chopper. More a general purpose knife.Fit & finish is very good. Sheath is very nice.Unclear what small knife should go in the sheath on the front.

COMBAT KUKRI
I SHALL NOT BE USING FOR COMBAT BUT I CAN SEE WHY THIS WOULD BE GOOD FOR IT. OBVIOUSLY TYPICAL KABAR 1095CRO VAN WHICH IS GOOD ENOUGH, KRATON HANDLES WHICH ARE WELL COMFY, SHEATH IS OK ,LEFT OR RIGHT HANDED,AND BLADE CAME SHARP, 2MINS ON THE LEATHER AND RAZOR. FOR THE TRUE KUKRI FEEL AND USAGE EVENTUALLY ILL GET THE SAN MAI iii ,THIS ISNT MADE FOR THAT SORT OF PUNISHMENT,IT HASNT GOT THE SIZE OR WEIGHT BEHIND IT.SAYING THAT THE SMALLER ,LIGHTER PACKAGE MAKES IT VERY SWIFT AND AGILE. GREAT PACKAGE,GREAT PRICE,THANX KNIFECENTRE SHALL BE USING AGAIN.
