Badass
I always wanted a Kukri. The design is unique and exotic. I had no need of another machette type blade but im definitely impressed. Smith&Wessen produces quality and precision in almost everything the put out. This blade has great weight a can hack with the best of em. I dont think id use it as a trail clearing tool but thats just me. The sheath is handy and easy to carry on your pack or belt loop. You can easily retrieve the blade from the sheath and replace it when you need to. I chose this one because the grip is solid and not wrapped with cords or string.

Not so Badass...
I sincerely apologise for that earlier review. Short version I was hacking salal vines in my back yard, tried to stick the blade in an old stump while i placed the cut vines in the yard waste bin, and the sucker broke in two... It broke right where blade is thinnist so i suspect this may be a common design flaw. I am extremely disappointed to say the least.

Broke Within a week.
I Purchased this blade because it was an inexpensive Kukri style knife. I figured i wanted to get used to its handleing characteristics. While doing some light pruning in the back yard this knife broke into three pieces while trying to chop through a 2" thick tree branch. Upon further inspection i found that the blade is cast, not forged and the steel used is quite poreous and low quality. This is the last S&W blade i will buy... I think S&W should stick to what they do well, and not put thier name on cheap chinese blades.
