Pros: Sheath/Scabbard, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Blade Material, None
Inexpensive, yes; cheap, no
The stainless steel blade was lightly marked "Pakistan". The country of origin stamp wiped away by the time I had sharpened the blade. -1 star. I appreciated the non-edge; most of the edge was a 1/8" flat. After only an hour with files and 1" belt sander I had the profile I wanted. I haven't finished with the final sharpening yet. The chakmak and karda were indistguishable and unuseable. They are fettled now after some more file and sander work. The sheath is better than I expected. The stitching is tight. The brass tip is substantial. The added-on leatherette belt loop is potentially functional. The belt loop's rivets are below the balance point of the filled sheath. That is, the sheath is top-heavy. Some #36 bank line wrapped throught the belt loop prevented the sheath from flopping about and dumping things out. The handles, kukri, chakmak, and karda, are beautifully ugly. Pure function, no glitz. The quality is par for the price and that is not a complaint. This is an inexpensive tool, not a cheap tool.

Great project
This my second Khuhkri knife the other I have had for nearly 16 years. The Khuhkri is an ethnic blade in which the design has been perfected and passed down since the beginning of the iron age. The knife does not come sharp and care must be taken to maintain the bevel angle as it changes along the length of the blade becoming much wider at the throat. The blade is good high carbon probably spring steel and takes a good edge. The Khuhkri also comes with two smaller knives which I understand are actually burnishers and intended to help maintain and already sharp knife. The pockets on my new sheath are not well formed and barely fit the two secondary knives. I have to force them in and you can hear them break the adhesive holding the goat skin to the wooden liner. I will also need to reduce the height of the wooden ring in the middle of the handle. On the new knife it is much too proud and wears on your hand. On my older Khuhkri it is lower and instills confidence as it improves your grip on the blade. I know there are some real high tech Khuhkri type blades out there but I just do not think they can match the almost anachronistic/ archaic feeling you get when holding and using these blades. Like I said the design itself was most likely developed in the Iron age. It is like holding a little piece of history. Also,the Khuhkri is much more substantial than most machetes'.
