Good Blade

I bought this several weeks. The blade is good and so was the blade worth the money I spent on it. You should buy it you will not be disappointed!

Very durable

I've had mine for 7 years and put it through a lot of extreme abuse. I'm starting to look at a replacement now, as the tip has broken off and there are chunks missing from the blade. Also, as others are saying, the sheathe falls apart quickly. This may sound like a negative review, but I am confident that no other blade could have chopped through countless trees, (I cut down many over 2 feet wide) dug trenches in clay, chipped rocks to better shapes, hammered in nails, and even broken through a small safe. It also does intended jobs like clearing trails through brush with ease. However, due to the heft behind this blade, fatigue sets in quicker for strictly trail clearance than using a lighter weighted machete. The grip is excellent, but you will still get nasty blisters if you don't use gloves during prolonged use. Overall, it has served me far beyond what I expected, and I will definitely be purchasing another one.

This kukri is mean! I can compare it to anything else I have and it comes on top. I went through a 2x4 one chop. (that is scary it came sharp enough to shave right out of the box. I LOVE IT!!!! You can always trust a KA-BAR to do its job

Mini Excalibur

This thing is great, I had a forest of ocotillo cacti in my back yard, and lets just say it won't be returning. On a hunting trip in was charged by a javelina and I left my .45 in the truck, a quick sidestep and this amazing blade neutralized the threat quicker than that pig thought it was. The weight amplifies your chopping power by 600 percent. Great deal, legendary knife. (Mini Excalibur) immaculately constructed ka-bar. Well done, it even out shines some of my 200+ dollar blades

Best knife ever, but...

My side arm. I choose to carry a knife, and THIS KNIFE is my right hand. The scabbard is lose fitting and low end, so if you buy this knife you should also get it a scabbard it deserves. The knife is perfect for the price, even though it is made in Taiwan. The black finish makes this blade feel like the fang of Cerberus, and it handles well. If you need a chopper, cleaver or a slasher, this blade will serve you well for a hundred years. Therefore, this is a blade you will pass down from father to son and mother to daughter.

This is one of the best blades i have ever seen. I bought it about 6 months ago as I used to pick lots of mushrooms in Fl in very woodsy areas and have had wild boar run up on me. It came sharp, but is easy to make razor sharp. The Sheath is even incredible. I have taken down 2-3' dia pine trees with one smooth swipe. The thing is very durable, and is a bit on the heavy side. If it was still in stock id buy a backup

Kabar Kukri

I've put this blade through many tests like cutting down small trees and chopping through 2x4s and plywood. I've even thrown this machete. Its very durable and dependable, a steal for $60. An excellent tool or weapon.

I love this knife, plain and simple. It is a good weight, dependable, holds an edge, came sharp right out of the box, and is a great addition to any bug out kit. A little disappointed it came from Taiwan, but whatever
