Cold Steel's Amazing Kukri!

Posted on 1/14/2010 by From the Editors, Blade and Gear

On the left is Cold Steel's amazing version of a Gurkha Kukri. What the hell is a Kukri you ask? Well, here's what Wikipedia had to say:

The kukri (Devanāgarī: खुकुरी) (also sometimes spelled khukri or khukuri) is a curved Gurkha knife which can be used as a tool as well as a close combat mêlée weapon. It is curved in shape and is the icon of Nepal. It was and in many cases still is the basic and traditional utility knife of the Nepalese people. Very effective when used as weapon, it is a symbolic weapon for all Gurkha regiments throughout the world and the Nepalese Army signifying the courage and valor of the bearer in the battlefield. read more here...

Well, now we know a little bit about what a Kukri is and it's history, but does the darn thing perform? You bet it does. Check out the video from Cold Steel below, and keep in mind this knife from Cold Steel costs under 20 bucks! This design is just amazing. Expect to hear more about Kukris in the future and remember-if it doesn't survive, you won't.
