    My wife picked this up for me a very nice knife and solid, razor sharp not a bad price at around $30.00 on Amazon. Would work very good as a pack knife allso make a wonderful defense weapon.

    The real question is: Does this Blade have a Hollow Ground Tempered Edge, like the original Kukuri from Nepal?
  4. I think alphadog's is more of a machete thickness.

    My kukri has a convex grind, I have never seen them hollow ground. Guess I need to do more research. The one I have is the standard issue one that the British Army issues to their ghurkas. I know most also bring their own style from home, but all I have is the standard stores one. It is useful, but not my favorite blade style.

    Probably because I haven't figured out how to master it. I tend to use machete or axe for my chopping.

    I suspect I would like the thinner machete thickness kukri over the thick one I have, It is over 1/4 inch thick even though I think they maker was shooting for 1/4 inch.

    Kukris are weight forwards or the mass is further out. This adds force to the blow but makes it difficult to change directions. As a result the kukri is difficult to master for defense.
