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.
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 used my sister's account to order this for a 2-week solo expedition in the Colorado high country that just ended. I used it over 80 miles of bowhunting and fishing between 10,500 and 13,000 feet in mid-late September 2015. It was not a frill item but something necessary for my survival and this review is based on use in extreme, extended circumstances. I've used all sorts of axes and machetes in both tropical and alpine environments. I had used this kukri before on one other 5-day trip and decided to take it on this trip based on my experience with it then. After putting a proper edge on it, it was an extremely effective cutting tool. Cutting poles for shelters or meat-drying racks up to 6" in diameter never took more than a dozen strokes. You have to use the right technique with it and if you don't know how to use a kukri, don't fault the tool. But if you know how to use it, I highly recommend it as your primary cutting tool for extended bushcraft activities. The weight/size/cutting power tradeoffs were about perfect for my needs. I'll stick with my parang for thin jungle vines, but this is my go-to tool now for alpine environments. A noob or knucklehead will either be frustrated or sliced to ribbons with it, but an experienced user will love it.
