KA-BAR Combat Kukri Fixed Blade

KA-BAR Combat Kukri

Is it a tactical combat knife or a wilderness blade? That’s for you to decide. The Combat Kukri from KA-BAR is an extremely versatile knife built to handle the toughest tasks with ease. Fitted with an 8-1/2″ curved blade, the Kukri is well designed for chopping and hacking or  for draw cuts and slashes. The Kraton handle provides a good, hand-filling grip and also helps to reduce shock absorbed by the hand. The pommel at the butt end adds to the knife’s capabilities, allowing for light hammering and smashing duties. For a knife measuring in at just over 13″, the best thing about the Combat Kukri is it’s weight. At 13.4 ounces, you get enough weight behind it to get the job done but the balance of the knife makes it feel much lighter and it’s very very maneuverable. Whether you’re a combat professional or weekend camper, try out a Combat Kukri for yourself and find out just how great this knife really is. Best of all, it’s proudly made in the USA and available at www.knifecenter.com.

“You got machete in my saw!”

Okay, it probably didn’t happen like that. But United Cutlery has put out a new sawback kukri machete that is, pardon my French, pretty darn cool. At 21″ overall, it’s portable enough to bring on most any outdoor activity, and its robust 14-3/4″ full-tang blade is up to whatever task you can throw at it.  Even better, it’s got sawback serrations to make nice clean cuts whether  you’re building a survival shelter or just cutting that tree limb in the front yard down to size. It ships with a lanyard and a durable nylon sheath. Available in gray or yellow. Check ‘em out at www.knifecenter.com !

It Is Here, A Cheap Folding Kukri from Boker

Boker Pocket Kukri
Try the Boker Magnum Pocket Kukri

The kukri is a very popular fixed blade knife, the shape of which has frequently been adapted to machetes, but it is rarely seen on a folder. In fact, the only other folding kukris we currently carry are Cold Steel’s Rajah II and Rajah III.

Hailing from Nepal and India, the primary feature of the kukri is the heavy recurve, which results in the blade being much thicker at the tip. For traditional kukris, this makes them much more capable for chopping tasks. The folding kukri is not nearly as good for chopping large pieces of wood, but the shape still makes it great for other tasks. The recurve creates a dip in the knife that prevents the item that is being cut from slipping away from the knife, making it easier to cut wet rope or fish. It also creates a longer usable edge than other blades of similar length. Although there is no thumbstud or hole, the nail nick creates more than enough friction for opening the knife one handed.

Boker’s new Magnum Pocket Kukri has one big advantage over the Rajah series: It is a fraction of the price. At $17.95, you have the perfect excuse to indulge your curiosity and check out this knife.

Spyderco Khukuri by Ed Schempp

Spyderco Khukuri by Ed Schempp
Spyderco has some of the coolest knives in the world. This Kuhkhri folder is among them and, naturally, it came by way of the visionary knife maker, Ed Schempp. This knife, when folded, feels like a very small folder. Because the blade is bent, when it is open the blade is really pretty significant. This makes an ideal every day carry knife. Spyderco will often bring these models out in short runs and, if they don’t keep selling well, will discontinue them. If this appeals to you, grab one. We like them a lot.
