The Cold steel Kukri Machete features a 13″ 1055 Carbon Steel blade with baked on black anti rust matte for that extra layer of rust and corrosion protection. This blade and steel quality are fantastic and you can be assured that this will not chip or break in your travels. These blades are more than capable of working long hours and remaining sharp. However, they do not come that razor sharp out of the box and may need a bit of a sharpen, which is one problem that many have found with this otherwise perfect machete.
The handle on this beast is also of exceptional quality made of polyproplene which ensures that you will always have a solid grip and have a lower chance of it flying out of your hand in use. The machete weighs only 16 ounces so it is fairly light meaning that you shouldn’t really get that sore of an arm from swinging it all day. Furthermore, the Cold Steel Kukri Machete is well balanced and strong, which is something that I know a lot of people look for in a machete.
Overall, the Cold Steel Kukri Machete is absolutely brilliant. I Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a solid blade capable of performing the tough and rigorous tasks such as clearing bushes and branches. Go try it out at your local store, however, to make sure you get a proper feel for it before buying it.
