Ka-Bar Kukri Machete Review – http://bladereviews.com/ka-bar-kukri-machete/
If you are on a budget and in need of a blade with some serious chopping capabilities I can safely recommend the Ka-Bar Kukri Machete. $50 buys you a 4mm thick piece of 1085 high carbon steel with classic kukri cutting ability mated to a wide and comfortable grivory handle – complete with a sturdy and fully functional sheath. Fit and finish is excellent. From the brass lined lanyard hole to the high quality matte black blade coating (extremely durable), the overall quality is surprisingly good. More importantly this machete has proven itself to be an extremely powerful tool. I like this one for regular machete work but it is also extremely effective at heavier tasks, like chopping through 8 inch logs (salt soaked drift wood at that – tough stuff for sure). The sheath is entirely adequate, especially given the price. It takes the somewhat ungainly kukri blade and holds it secure with two snaps. A couple attachment points make this one easy to carry on your belt or a pack. All in all this is an awesome choice for someone who needs something heavier than a machete but doesn’t want to compromise on quality or price. Highly recommended.
I recommend buying the Kukri Machete on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001H53Q8A?tag=brdfkdfk-20
