    I received this kukri as an early Christmas present from my father, it's very sturdy and well balanced. The reason I only gave it three stars is because I was expecting it to be ready to rock right out of the box, instead it came in as dull as a butter knife!!! Even after sharpening it vigorously it still wasn't sharp enough to do it's job. I'm not going to suggest this item to anyone who has a budget of $50 dollars or higher, but if you have a tight budget it's better than nothing.

    I purchased two of these back in November 2011, and gave one to my father, and one to my wife for Christmas. They are both pleased with them for the most part, but after six months, I have found that my wife's kukri is of a substantially lower quality than any of my other Cold Steel machetes. Also, the handle doesn't seem to be made of the same material. I have been forced to conclude that these Kukri are either from a really bad batch on the factories part, or more likely; Cold Steel forgeries.

    I got this knife just a few days ago, I had arrived four days earlier than the estimated arrival, and I simply LOVE IT XD its such a good chopper, and nicely balanced, which makes it good for throwing. Sharpening wasn't as bad as the otber reviews said, I just used a file and a diamond sharpener and got it pretty sharp. I'm definately going to buy another one :D

    I placed my order for this machete yesterday 3/2/12 and, when I got home from work today 3/3/12 it was waiting on my doorstep. Top notch service from True Swords per usual. Out of the box I noticed the blade wasn't terribly sharp, it sheared paper two or three times then started struggling. Which for a machete is alright I guess but I wanted more, so I got out my whet stones and in less than 15 minutes it had a wicked edge. I know for a fact the edge will hold now for a good long while, as i also have a cold steel warrior katana which I have never sharpened in 2 years with moderate use and its edge is still RAZOR sharp. The steel in these two is the same "medium" carbon 1055 which is flexible but solid, hard but not brittle. This steel makes for, in my opinion, the ideal blade it sharpens quick and and stays sharp.
    With a little TLC this is an excellent purchase with amazing service.

    blade isn't really sharp had a small chip handle fixed it good for a chopping knife but it really has a flimsy feel to it at the handle. but the sheath is really nice.

    Just got in yesterday, and I've already tested it on the box it came in, (as is custom for any blade purchased from Trueswords) and it was pretty sharp right out of the box. Sharpening is very easy IF you use a tungsten carbide sharpener, ceramics are only good for touching up the edge. Can be made quite sharp, has good balance, and I'm not entirely sure about this as I have yet to test it, but it seems to be balanced well enough to throw. Sheath is good, ballistic nylon lined with plastic. Large loop should fit most belts. All in all, a very good product from Cold Steel! (no surprise here)

    An amazing pice of Metal, Deffinitly beats an 8 dollar wallmart machete, it is amazing at chopping wood. It can easilly smash bricks and rocks with the back, non bladed side. I would suggest this for any machete lover, it is amazing. Its quite thick and does not flop around like a wallmart machete, it is ten times better.
