Great weight to the blade up in the front end, makes chopping easy.
humantiger
The blade is nice and solid, as is the handle too, the grip is comfortable, and it has a great weight to it.
Spencer L.
Mine wasn't sharp, but a little work with a sharpener and it has a useable edge.

We have owned the Cold Steel Kukri Machete for several years now and it's one of the most used large blades we own. In spring hiking it is common to come across downed trees blocking trails. This Kukri makes short work of the branchs sticking out so we can get over/around the down trees with minimal effort. The curved blade really improves the cutting ability and the Kukri isn't too heavy to carry for day hikes. We also use it at home for cutting large brush down to a managable size.

Bought a different kukri in 440 stainless and the blade was too soft to tolerate any chopping so thought I'd try Cold Steel.
Wow, what a difference! They're lighter than I thought and perfect size on the hip. Great balance and perfect to maximize the Kukri chopping advantage. Right out of the box I was impressed and with the factory blade was able to almost cut the box in half with a lazy diagonal swipe.
20 minutes with a cheap sharpener, (the fixed angle ceramic type that come with a keychain...) and the blade is scary sharp. Not perfect, but better than anything except my Ka-Bar. For this price I want a half a dozen of these lying around. (I don't know why) and judging by the steel and quality for my dollar won't hesitate to buy more expensive models from Cold Steel.
I also bought a Riflemans Hawk tomahawk from Cold Steel for a friend of mine and am similarly impressed.
I can shave with that and it's another piece of functional, work ready gear.

worth the price! holds an edge nicely. good weight. heavy enough to smash through stuff, but not to heavy to lug around on you hip all day. sheath is a little awkward at first, but is very secure. handle is not the most comfortable if you don't wear gloves. use a steel bruch to rub off the plastic burrs on the handle. overall, a great affordable compact machete.

I really like the reviews and concept. However, I am making my second return today. My order arrived a few days ago. I found some type of damage to the blade powdercoat in two spots. In the spot, closest to the handle, whatever it was that causes the damage had eaten through to the steel. I contacted Cold Steel and reported what i had found. I mentioned that the problem and that it appeared to match the exact spots where the straps that close the sheath are stitched to the sheath. They had assured me that it was not their fault because they inspect everything just before it leaves their factory. However, with no damage to the box it shipped in, the bag it comes in from the manufacture, or the sheath itself, and the exact match between the stitching and the blade damage...it seems likely that some fluid or oil they are using to make or finish the sheath is damaging the powdercoat. I called them about the second instance of the same damage on this replacement kukri and they said thank you and asked if their was anything else i needed.
I am returning this replacement for a refund and will be buying a kukri or Khukri from someone else.

Note to Cold Steel: If you are reading this review, your representative receiving your phone calls at 805-658-0180 seems like a nice guy but is rather dismissive of even the notion that Cold Steel's products could be anything but perfect. While I appreciate loyalty to and confidence in one's product, that is better placed in a conversation with a competitor, rather than a customer who has received a bad product of yours, let alone a replacement product with the same problem which looks distinctly like a manufacturing problem. It is a bit insulting.

I've had mine for a couple months and I'm finding it ok but not great. Steel is a bit soft and dulls pretty quickly but easy to bring back if you know to carry a file or sharpener. I like the handle but wish they left the butt flare smooth. I did 3 hours of heavy use clearing some trail and the heel of my hand got pretty sore. I smoothed out the butt with a file and wire wheel but haven't had an opportunity to work with it again. The weight of the knife was such that I never tired and that surprised me. The sheath is flimsy and I ripped it the first time out on the trail - handle caught on some brush and ripped at the top. Good design if it had a much tougher reinforcement where the top snap is. The knife is surprisingly easy to carry on a belt. I think if it followed closer to the real Gurkha Kukri shape it might be a better cutter, also if the steel was a little harder, maybe a little thicker at the back bone. Its much better than a standard shaped machete I bought at a garage sale. I'll work on this one a bit but I'm shopping for a better one, might try one of the larger real Gurkha Kukris. I wish I could afford the Cold Steel San Mai version to try.

This is not a real kukri, it is a marriage of the kukri's chopping power to a machete's weight. The Kukri's chopping power comes from the weight forward curved blade. This machete gets a good chopping bonus from the design. It's not going to have the chopping power of an axe, or even a real kukri, and it's not going to have the light brush clearing ability of a true machete because of the length and forward curve. It is a decent marriage between the two though.

It is made as well or better than most true machetes, but is not a fine blade. Most examples I have seen had the edge ground at far to shallow of an angle and had to be completely reworked. (A chopping edge will fold over if to fine.) The sheath is also next to useless. I ended up making one out of kydex. So after the work I've put into it, this tool has given me years of service clearing brush, doing light yard work, building improvised shelters chopping campfire wood etc. All in all not a bad tool, but don't expect to much for the money you're spending. Like any other multi-purpose tool it is a compromise.
