    One topic that doesn't seem to be very well covered is a kukri vs machete. My local surplus store has a sale on "bladed weapons" and i noticed a ontario kukri. I love their sp line and this is no different. It feels great and the handle is leaps and bounds over my ontario machete (which i love...

    All your talk about them and I had to pick one up... I visited a new range / gun shop in town, and they didn't have many guns (sadly, and IMHO not a good plan to start), but they did have a smattering of knives. One was a Kukri, for the right price... so I broke down and got it. Took a...

    Hello just wanted everyone to know I just recieved my first Nepalese kukri from kukri house. It is a nice blade it does have a couple of cosmetic flaws but I am happy. I bought this one to be a beater/hard user anyway. I know they have other companies and I think I will try one of the others...

    I've got a Kabar Kukri and have no problem putting a razor, shaving sharp edge on the outer curve of it or any other knife with a straight edge. My problem is with the inner curve of the Kukri. :confused: I normally use various types of stones, usually first I use a coarse then a fine diamond...

    How far would a Kukri Machete get me in the Adirondacks? Here is what I have learned so far: 1. Of all the machetes people seem to have the most respect for the Kukri. 2. They seem to be easily packable. 3. Lighter than a hatchet. 4. Look totally [email protected]$$. Given the area I live, is a Kukri an...

    I just got my first Kukri from Cold Steel.Just the right size to keep in a backpack.Got a question? What's the best way to put an edge on it ? I've never bought a machete without some kind of edge on it. Any ideas would be a big help. Hopefully my SOG Field Pup will be here soon. I love getting...

    About a week ago I got my first kukri, a 15.5" panawal angkhola model with a 10.5" blade. Up until then, I had tried various machetes and leukus, but I find my kukri to be in a whole different league. I was chopping through frozen pine last weekend to process firewood, and the knife was chewing...

    Hi guys! I'm new to the world of the Machete and need some advice. I'm looking for a good quality Machete that I can afford. 1.) Is the Kukri style the best all around style (BOB/Hunting pack) for use in the upper mid-west (Minnesota/Wisconsin)? 2.) If so, who makes the best one for the...

    Alright, so here's the deal. I'm trying to acquire some heavy-duty leaf springs and I'm planning on making a machete. It'll either be leaf springs or some scrap 1055 I can get my paws on, because I really want some room to work with. Anyways, I am in love with the heavy-duty nature of the...

    I own a Woodman's Pal. I have used it once in the field to try it out. It works OK. I wasn't super impressed and it feels a little unwieldy even with the leather wrapped handle. What are your opinions on which tool to use for brush clearing or sapling take down? A machete, a woodman's pal, or...

    A few years back I bought a Kukri that was made by an Indian Firm that had the contract for making Kukuri's for the British army Nepalese troops. It was rather heavy and had two small light bladed knives in the scabbard as well. For what I paid of it after sharpening it up it is a useful...

    I recently bought a Cold Steel Kukri. I was playing around and gently hacked a firewood a few times and this is the result. Is this what I should expcect from this machete (or all machetes)? Wal-Mart fire wood After about 3 hacks This is the edge out of the bag. The quality isn't that...

    I will tell you this, after you use a Kurki Machete, you will never go back. Up until a few years ago, I did not know how each using a machete could be. With the weight towards the front of the blade, this chopping and hacking tool is very easy to use. The Kurki in the pictures below is my...
