The kukri machete excels at any task, whether you're chopping firewood, clearing brush, cutting up meat or trying to impress your friends. These long Nepalese knives have inwardly curved blades that don't diminish the functionality of the tool, but add to it. The curved blade creates an ideal chopping tool and the edge is great for more nuanced tasks.
In Nepal, the kukri remains the utility knife of choice, being used as often as an everyday pocket knife. At Knife Depot, we offer a range of kukri designs, ensuring that you can find the kurki that best fits your needs.

The good: A solid chunk of steel, though I've not put it through it's paces, the blade should prove to be durable. Cold steel never skimps on the metal. The strap ring hole at the butt of the handle is a good addition. The handle material has a good grip to it. The sheath is secure and has a decent build as well, although I probably would prefer a leather material. I like the finger guard design, which also acts as a stopper on the sheath. The bad: The blade has a rough polish; and the spine is very flat with a sharp hard angle. While the flatness provides good hammering surface and the sturdiest possible spine by virtue of thickness, the sharp corner will eat into anything that strikes it. Then entire blade is very flat, more reminding of a primitive chopping tool than the traditional Kukri. Perhaps this is intended for the survivalist crowd, who seek a basic yet solid chunk of steel to bang around, or just to cut costs. Overall, and for the price of this knife, I would expect higher craftsmanship in the blade profiling and finish. Also, I was a little disappointed with the factory edge sharpness. I own two other Cold Steel knives, and both came much sharper than this one. I think it's a very good knife in the sturdiness department, but slightly overpriced for what it really offers in the end.
This is one heck of a knife. The blade is made with great strength steel to take any abuse you dish out. The edge is sharp and easy to keep that way. I highly recommend this Ontario knife Kukri to anyone that wants a quality product.
Bought two, one for my son one for me, I gave it to him for Christmas he was very happy with it, as I was with mine. Price was good, shipping was fast.
The best machete ever. Love this for getting into coconuts. It came sharp but we were able to get it very sharp and it's kept it's edge through over 50 coconuts. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Holds an edge very well. I use an abrasive belt sharpener that leaves a curved edge. Full tang, and the handle is very well designed. Chops dry wood and splits kindling like a hatchet. Sheath is thick leather with 2 snaps. Blade is easy to slide in with one hand. No need to hold the straps out of the way. Works amazingly well for field dressing big game. Don't have to dull my small knife on joints of spend forever sawing through the pelvis. THANKS!!
The knife is a great tool to have when you need kilning for starting a fire and is great for clearing the hiking trail as you go.
Terrible burred edge in spots
