Cold Steel, founded in 1980, is dedicated to making the strongest, sharpest knives in the world. For the past 30 years Cold Steel has been designing and manufacturing some of the finest, most durable knives available. Without a doubt a Cold Steel Blade should be in on your belt, in your pack, or in your hand at all times.
When you need something that can out cut and out chop everything else out there, then you need the Cold Steel San Mai III Gurkha Kukri. It features the distinctive traditional downward curved Kukri blade identified with the legendary Gurkha Warriors of Nepal.
The full potential of the Kukri goes far beyond just a chopping weapon but it's also a piercing, slashing, and smashing weapon as well. Smashing techniques allow the Kukri to function as a hammer or mallet or to deliver non-lethal blows in a self-defense role.
This versatility in weight and design make the Kukri a critical survival tool for clearing trails, harvesting food, hunting or building shelters. The machete, over the last three centuries, has proven to be the ultimate outdoor and survival tool. It will cut, chop, slash, hack, split, scrape, scoop, hammer, dig, crush, carve, whittle, crack or smash just about anything you can put in front of it. It can be used to kill fish and game, and will gut, scale, filet, skin, quarter, and butcher them for the table as well. The Kukri is the ultimate evolved perfection of the machete design.
These blades are made out of San Mai III Steel that will out chop any factory blade on the market including swords that are twice it's size. The blade is almost an inch wider near the tip than the handle which pushes the balance point forward for more leverage on the heaviest Kukri blade available anywhere. Each Cold Steel San Mai III Gurkha Kukri comes with a Secure-Ex sheath to protect you blade and for easy carry.
