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.

OK, while you're waiting for it to arrive, get a good metal file ready. You will need it for about 30-45 minutes to actually put an edge on the blade. Not a stone - a file, ok? Then, when you finally have an actual edge from the file, spend about 20 minutes with a course stone and then another 20 minutes with a fine stone and you will have a great cutting tool.

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.
