HoY says:

Where are you that has this much snow already??

Victor ! says:

For those who seek full tang, good luck if your full tang knife can match this one. Good vid tho, this kukri design blade is best known for hard work. Now those who used it …. know.

Sim Fehlt says:

nice neck knife

Paul'ie 4X says:

A Sickle isn’t that a frozen sick guy heh heh heh

Jonathan Henson says:

MrMrjones333 says:

i was just going to say what happened to the stump of truth ? nevermind. lol. thanks 4 sharing.

Peter Notmyreallastname says:

Great video. I bought one a week ago and love it so far. I’m wondering what you recommend for sharpening larger blades like these? I have a tri-hone or whatever it’s called sharpener that’s perfect for smaller knives or kitchen knives, but want something to sharpen my larger blades like this one. Do you have any recommendations of a larger (non-field carry) type stone or similar? Thanks for any replies!

Jessy Forrest20 says:

JD LD says:

wow…. that kukri did a number on the Stump of Truth!

sten beetlex says:

i have been pressing like for nearly 2 months on so many vidos… is this voultary or is there a youtube tech problem?

Sturer 111 says:

So, any thoughts about reviewing chinese Real Steel folders? Really high quality for its price, I would recommend the h6 blue sheep folder

Phil Hand says:

KA-BAR makes a great blade and always has but damn they’re expensive!

Armed Rogue says:

I love KA-BAR (as you know), but this seems a little too bulky for me, personally. I like the look of them and I like seeing other people using them, but maybe just not for me. But they’re sure sweet. It’s a beast!

scream2749 says:

idk if i should get condor kukri or ka-bar kukri

Exile says:

Has anyone got the ParaCord pro from Kukri house?


Did you roll/chip or dull this 1095 from this short test?
Did the black paint come off? Wonder why no DLC

petrol head says:

that wood may be moist and soft try machete on rocks

Fa Vang says:

looks really bad, if you need a log to split logs.

Paul'ie 4X says:

Say Heah Is, That BK-21 Becker Reinhart Ka-BarI like just so I could chop a fallen tree across a river so I could chop it so I could continue down river, heh heh heh.,,.
< |~_^|>

volcom137z says:

Mine came shaving sharp out of the box. Combined with a good skinner and the bk9 you really dont need any other blades for survival.

TangSooDoArnis4Life says:

could you do a video on KA-BAR kukri machete VS Khukuri from Nepal?

PowerMadHeadBanger says:

Excellent review brother! You are a inspiration to me to as a hard work and professional. I know you love when people get the blade you are reviewing… Well you did such a nice job by 1000th time that I am getting one.

Joseph Torres says:

When the blade gets dirty, how can you clean all the smears and dirt off the blade?

Mentally Challenged Viking says:

I love my kabar kukri..

Paul'ie 4X says:

I think
Y’all JuggleKnives sounds pretty good too heh heh heh, just a Say Heah and update. I ordered a Battle Horse Attitude, But I’m having a slight curve, blade thin down from 3/16th’s” to 5/32nd” and a High Scandi Grind and White Handle with a Blue Liner. Now it will match my White Handle Himalayan Imports M-43 Khukuri, My other has Black Buffalo Horn and it’s biggee, but it’s easier for me to match knives to it. Infact I took the Big Boy out with my Bokor Magnum Series Vox Collection 2011 and for my finer work, I had my Vintage Myerchin Pocket Knife with the Marlin Spike which is great to untangle paracord. Both knives are in the 440c. This was also a nice matching set and they complimented eachother and worked out great. Boy Bokor does a good job with their 440c. Anyhow Partner, I would like to Wish you a Happy Easter. See Y’all.

Austin West says:

would this be worth 36 bucks new ?

Jules Thurongi says:

Any future hope of reviewing the Ontario kukri??? I see it as a sleeper among buget carbon steel kukris…
