Cold Steel Royal Kukri MachetebrbrCold Steel President Lynn C Thompson has been exploring the potential of the Kukri for over two decades. Its hard to find a more versatile knife. A stalwart ally in a tight spot and an indispensable survival tool, a good Kukri is truly apocalypse proofbrbrWhen he chose to design a Kukri Lynn looked to his many hours fighting in Cold Steels training facility for inspiration. Where other companies look to hired help for their knowledge, standing on the shoulders of giants, Lynn and his team invested their own blood, sweat and tears, endlessly sparring with different prototypes looking for ways to improve upon this already near perfect design.brbrLynn recognized that many of the qualities that make a great fighting knife also make a great bushcraft tool. A sharp blade, strong tip, good hand protection and a versatile handle are all key. Stripping the Kukri back to its bare basics he then began re-designing the knife from the ground up. The re-imagined blade was presented at an angle, keeping the cutting power that made the Kukri the stuff of legend, but increasing its thrusting and piercing power. The handle with its integral guard kept the users precious digits safe from harm while changing the balance and heft of the knife considerably.brbrThe newly christened Royal Kukri was then extensively field-tested. Proving to be an outstanding multi-functional bush knife. Capable of the toughest bushcraft chores, from chopping firewood to dispatching wounded game, it also provided the comfort of a last resort self defense option.brbrWith a rust resistant baked on matte black coating, the fully sharpened 1055 Carbon Steel blade is safely and securely held in a sturdy Cor-Ex sheath.brbrSpecificationsbrbr- Blade Length 15 12br- Overall Length 20 34br- Steel 1055 Carbon Steel with Black Baked on Anti Rust Matte Finishbr- Weight 21.2 oz Approx.br- Blade Thickness 2.8 mmbr- Handle 5 14 Long Polypropylenebr- Sheath Cor-Ex
