lets start off with my history of ka bar knifes. i have many of them to this day my favorite is the kukri machete. great knife.... this ka bar cutlass came it the mail and was here in 3 days or so fast shipping. i took it out to test it on a 2x4 and the blade edge folded over and i did not even finish cutting the 2x4....i called ka bar and it is getting handled. Im sure it is a tempering issue of some sort...i hope that my new one does not do the same thing..... this is a good reminder to test all the gear that you have before you take it out and get in a place that you have to rely on untested gear. i have a new ka bar kukri that just came in the mail. i have had 3 of these and they have all been great. the 3 that i had before i gave to good friends that were going on backpack trips and were ill prepared. all of them holding up. the kukri is a better chopper anyway and the same price. go get the kabar kukri and you will not be disappointed.
