This machete is based on the kukri (also spelled kukhri or kukhuri) knife, used by the Ghurkas of Nepal. Made by Cold Steel, this historical and ethnographicaly inspired machete features a modern 1055 blackened carbon steel blade, polypropylene grips, and a cordura nylon sheath. Sharp, rugged, and ready for all of your chopping and brush-clearing needs - they are way spiffier than standard military-issue machetes, with a blade configuration that has proven itself for centuries.
