The Nepalese kukri combines the sheer power of an axe with the lightness of a machete, making a formidable tool for woodsmen, hikers, and hunters alike.

And the KA-BAR kukri machete is the best of its kind.

The knife boasts an 11.5-inch 1085 carbon steel blade with a functional angle of 20 degrees and a hollow grind. At an overall length of 17 inches, the kukri machete weighs in at 1.7 pounds, which gives it enough heft that it feels natural and balanced in your hands.

Like all KA-BAR products, the kukri is built to take on pretty much anything you can throw at it, including all the chopping and field use you can manage. The Kraton G handle features a nice butt cap and guard to keep it from slipping out of your grip.

As with any good knife, the kukri machete comes with a durable Cordura and leather sheath that attaches to your belt, so you can have it when you need it. With this beauty strapped to your hip, you'll be all set in the jungle.

An excellent tool, can with practice, cut through a 2" branch with one slash. I managed to make a tree fall with approximately an 8" trunk in around 5 minutes. It keeps its edge very well.

I give this item a five star rating. The Kukri is a tough and very durable machete. The sharpness of the blade has held up under more than normal use. I would recommend this machete to all my friends.

This a great kukri. Best machete I've ever owned. Although I'm a little disappointed that this blade was made in Taiwan. I was hoping it be made in the USA.

The blade and handle is suitable for heaviest use and the handle allows sure grip throughout the project. K-Bar name carries it's reputation well with this instrument.
Ka-bar Knives
Making a quality KA-BAR product requires the talent of experienced craftspeople performing dozens of processes with precision and skill. Each knife undergoes specific manufacturing processes to ensure corrosion resistance, strength, edge holding ability, and an out-of-the-box razor sharp cutting edge.

Soon after its introduction in the mid-1920's, the KA-BAR trademark became widely known and respected. There have been many versions of how the KA-BAR name came to be, but all evidence points to a letter received from a fur trapper. This particular fur trapper's testimonial turned out to be the most significant ever received by the company.

He wrote, in very rough English, that his gun had jammed and that he had therefore relied on his knife to kill a wounded bear that was attacking him. In thanking the company for their quality product the trapper described using his knife to kill the bear. All that was legible of his scrawled writing was "k a bar". The company was so honored by this testimonial that they adopted this phrase and used it as their trademark, KA-BAR.
