The Rajah folders, designed by Andrew Demko, are big enough to approximate the feel and heft a fixed blade Kukri. Their broad, downward curved blades exhibit the best of a Kukri’s characteristics. First, their unique shape presents their thin, hollow ground edges at just the right angle so they naturally bite deep instead of bouncing or skidding off. And secondly their points are thick, wide and sharp enough to pierce even the toughest targets. New Tri-Ad lock.

But why own it? I can think of at least three reasons why someone might want to own a Rajah II.
1) Self-defense/Combat - If you can legally carry this knife in your jurisdiction/unit, then there's no doubt in my mind that it would function well in a civilian self-defense or military combat role.
2) General-purpose woods knife - This is how I use the Rajah II, and it excels in this role. It performs nearly all general camp tasks well and can even be used for light chopping tasks. I feel that the greatest advantage it provides is that it performs very well as a machete. I had to go through a field of large pricker brush recently, and the Rajah II made light work of it. A machete would have done even better, but I didn't have one with me because I didn't think I'd need it. Thankfully, I did have my Rajah II.
3) The Cool Factor - Let's face it. This knife is cool. Just whip it out in front of the guys, and watch them begin oohing and drooling. Just make sure they're knife-people who will appreciate it, otherwise you might cause someone to have a heart attack. ;-)
I'm sure there are other reasons someone might buy this knife, but those are three that come to mind. Overall, it's a great knife.
-The Kukri design lends itself well to chopping, and the AUS-8A blade steel can handle it, being a pretty tough and resilient steel. -The handle is comfortable and gives you a number of grip options. You can choke up for control, or you can choke down for power. The steel liners ensure that the handle won't flex on you, and the grivory scales provide good traction.
-The clip position makes the knife ride fairly high in the pocket, but it needs to because of the length and so that you can get your hand on it for deployment. It feels very comfortable in my front pocket.
-The wave feature provided by the thumb-ramp is flawless, enabling you to deploy the knife with amazing speed. It also provides a good place for your thumb to rest when performing controlled cuts.
-The lanyard hole works well with 550 parachute cord.
-The Triad-Lock is extremely strong. Needless to say, that's extra important on a knife this large.
-The blade now comes with a stone wash finish, rather than the old bead blast finish that was more prone to corrosion.
I'm sure there's more to say by way of the features, but I'll leave it at that. If the knife has a con, it would probably be the weight. This is a heavy knife. I don't mind this at all, but some might. Overall, it's a great knife. If it suits you, I don't think you'll regret buying it.
This is an excellent large, folding Kukri, that is everything the OEM and enthusiasts tell you it is, and it represents, like all Cold Steel Knives, one hell of a bang-for-the-buck!
As with my seven other Cold Steel knives, my Rajah II arrived shaving-sharp, and ostensibly flawless in terms of fit and finish. Every aspect of this knife is completely satisfactory to my mind--especially at this price!
Not convinced? Check out the You Tube videos of the Rajah II in action, and then decide... An old friend once told me, "In Texas, we have a saying: If you can do it, it ain't bragging!" Well, by that criterion, Cold Steel ain't bragging!
I can't imagine that any customer with reasonable expectations will be disappointed by the Rajah II. To my mind, the Rajah II is a must-have for any serious folding knife collection. And that's about all I have to add...
Definitely check this one out!
Once you get over this things size, it feels very good in hand. Exceptionally ergonomic. The grooves in the handle are just right for my hand and there's no way I could ever loose grip. I've even tried it reverse grip, solid! The handle allows for multiple positions. One extreme allows for precise control, while the other (if you hold it towards the back) allows for excellent chopping.
Bottom like, if you can get this Rajah for under $80, its worth it. It is an amazing knife, but due to it's size, I would not recommend it to be every day carry. If you're going on a camping trip and don't want to bring an axe with you, this can do the chopping job of that. The Rajah III miht be better suited for EDC, but I don't own one of those.... yet ;)
