Product Description

Product Description

The Gurkha Kukri’s SK-5 high carbon blade will out-chop any factory or handmade knives; including swords twice its size, even expensive, hand forged Japanese Katanas. It’s the heaviest Kukri on the market. The blade is almost an inch wider near the tip than at the handle, shifting the knife’s balance point forward to allow a substantial blow to be struck with minimal effort, using inertia alone to complete the cut.

Every knife has a purpose.
John L. Hovan
I use it to trim branches, dig holes, whittle sticks for fence post, chop down saplings with ease.
Amazon Customer
I suspect Cold Steel used a differential quench to achieve this very thing.

First, I just have to say wow!!! I own a couple of other, cheaper Kukris and this one outshines them in every way.

Bottom line up front:
This is a good blade by any measure. Whether you want a Kukri you can be proud to show off to your buddies or you actually need a blade you can trust your life to, this is a good choice.

Pros:
1. The design is excellent. Cold Steel didn't reproduce the traditional Kukri, they improved the design considerably. In my opinion, it's far superior for thrusting than traditional designs and still retains the wicked cutting power that made the kukri famous. The handle is much better. It fits the hand well and is a joy to use. It has a lanyard hole (Which you should use). This is a first class cut and thrust weapon that can also do camp chores.

2. The steel choice and temper are both excellent. That's really all you probably need to know about the steel itself. If so, you should skip the details below, but for the knife nerds out there, here's the deal:

According to Cold Steel's website, SK-5 is a Japanese designation for 1080 carbon steel with carbon content between 0.75%-0.85% and 0.60%-0.90% manganese. The testing I was able to do confirms this. As a blacksmith, I have worked with this stuff quite a lot and use it often for knives. Without getting too technical, this type of steel strikes a balance (the eutectic point) between carbon and iron and again between manganese and iron. When you quench and temper this alloy, you can form a very fine crystal lattice with an almost perfect combination of toughness and hardness. When you get the temper right with this steel, it's almost magical.

I bought mine directly from Cold Steel.

Used it once to chop some 4" diameter branches of a fallen tree for fire wood.

Next day when I got home I was oiling it up and noticed the handle was loose. When I say "loose" I mean if the brass lanyard rivet wasn't there, the handle would fall right off.

Upon further inspection I found that the tang was completely rusted over with thick red rust.

I wonder how long it sat in some damp warehouse before they shipped it to me. Cold Steel refused to allow a warranty claim.

Can't tell you if the steel was any good or not...never used it again, and never plan to. After that, I no longer trust it, and I don't trust Cold Steel either. A "warranty" is useless if they refuse to honor it.

I would have to reccomend buying any one of the Kukri knives from Himilayan Imports instead of Cold Steel. Two other great companies for kukri are Tora, and Kukri House.

Purchased my original kukri from Cold Steel 4 months ago. After watching nutnfancy's review last month and outstanding field results with my original I have added a second Kukri to my outfit. This now goes with us on all of our excursions that fits the POU. My philosophy of use for this blade is an overall survival knife. The kukri has held up to all hype although the price is a little steep. I have used this blade for chopping and splitting which used to be performed by our trusty camp axe. This knife cuts with purpose and ease. Do to its weight forward design, its in a class of its own in the chopping department.
Did I mention tough? This blade is rock solid and I mean solid. Cold Steel did not skimp on this blade which is expected given the cost. If I were to have rated this 3 months ago it would have received 4 stars for difficulty in sharpening. Since then I have acquired a Lansky Sharpening Puck and needless to say with a some time spent around the campfire-problem solved.

Some recommendations:

1) Get yourself a Lansky puck or something like it as the convex blade as mentioned by another reviewer can be a pain to sharpen with a conventional stone from my experience.
2) Beware of the little ones. This blade does have a second kind of cool which brings out my son's ooohhs and ahha's. The kukri is no joke dangerous and does not belong in a child's unattended possession.
3) I haven't tested this blade in a wet environment but I would duracoat the blade before I ventured forth to make maintenance easier although keeping it well oiled would suffice.
4) Intricate camp chores can be achieved with the kukri but is not this blades primary mission.

this blade replaces the need to bring an axe, machete, or bowie knife. It does all the jobs in the woods. I highly reccommend it. I've put it through a ringer and it does not chip. However high carbon steel of this blade rust easy so take care to pour motor oil in the sheath so that it stays oiled. It is the right steel for the job however i wish cold steel would bring back the teflon coating of the original.

I do not recommend the san mi 3 version of this blade as my experiance with stainless is that it is too rigid and does not flex and this leads to chipping and an early "death" of the sword/blade.
