The Kukuri Machetes are workhorses that will cut, chop, slash, hack, split, scrape, scoop, hammer, dig, crush, carve, whittle, crack or smash. They are available in two sizes, one has a thirteen inch blade and the other, our "Magnum" model has a seventeen inch blade. The machete also makes a deadly improvised weapon as these blades are made out of 1055 Carbon Steel and are surfaced with a black, baked-on anti-rust finish. Each Cold Steel machete comes with a good utility edge which, with just a little work, can be made hair shaving sharp. The tough, Polypropylene handles of our machetes are designed to provide a comfortable secure grip. The Kukri Machete's come complete with a sturdy Cor-Ex sheath.
