Cold Steel
Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson has been exploring the potential of the Kukri for over two decades. It's hard to find a more versatile knife. A stalwart ally in a tight spot and an indispensable survival tool, a good Kukri is truly apocalypse proof!

When he chose to design a Kukri Lynn looked to his many hours fighting in Cold Steel's training facility for inspiration. Where other companies look to hired help for their "knowledge", standing on the shoulders of giants, Lynn and his team invested their own blood, sweat and tears, endlessly sparring with different prototypes looking for ways to improve upon this already near perfect design.

Lynn recognized that many of the qualities that make a great fighting knife also make a great bushcraft tool. A sharp blade, strong tip, good hand protection and a versatile handle are all key. Stripping the Kukri back to its bare basics he then began re-designing the knife from the ground up. The re-imagined blade was presented at an entirely new angle, keeping the cutting power that made the Kukri the stuff of legend, but increasing its thrusting and piercing power. The handle with its integral guard kept the user's precious digits safe from harm while changing the balance and heft of the knife considerably.

The newly christened Royal Kukri was then extensively field-tested. Proving to be an outstanding multi-functional bush knife. Capable of the toughest bushcraft chores, from chopping firewood to dispatching wounded game, it also provided the comfort of a last resort self defense option.

With a rust resistant baked on matte black coating, the fully sharpened 1055 Carbon Steel blade is safely and securely held in a sturdy Cor-Ex sheath.

As Adcertised.
Solid, balanced and at a great price. Just what you expect from cold steel. It might not be razor sharp but it can be easily sharpened to whatever sharpness you need. Shipping was quick and product was as described.

Best Kukri I ever owned.
I just received my Cold Steel Royal Kukri Machete today. As a pup I learned to carry a Kukri on my web gear in the field. Over the years I have lost or worn out 5 or 6 of the originals, the problem was it took hours to put a razor edge on them. My new Cold Steel Royal Kukri is not the case. It mounts easily on my web gear and only takes a few minutes to make it sharp enough to shave with. Another plus is the blade is lighter in weight yet stronger than the traditional thick / heavy blade. The Royal Kukri is perfect for use in any jungle on the planet or silently getting past guerilla sentries. Use your imagination and you will find a good use for this fantastic blade.

Royal Kukri
It's one of those products where you get what you pay for. The large size makes for good chopping and the handle is comfortable and grippy. It's even got some weight to it even tho it's a thinner blade than the more traditional Kukri. Mine came so uneven on the back of the blade that it's actually sharp. The grind on the blade is way uneven. After some blade work and working out some minor detail flaws its definitely a decent chopping tool. I think it was worth the twenty something $ I paid for it. At this price I don't think twice about beating the crap out of it while camping or hiking.
