One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Knives: Cold Steel Kukri Machete

One day, I received an email on a great deal for some Cold Steel machetes. So, I ended up getting the Cold Steel Kukri Machete and Sheath, "The Ultimate Outdoor and Survival Tool". At least that's what it says on the packaging. I actually have no real need for one, but after watching zombie movies/shows, I felt that I needed to prepare myself for the inevitable apocalypse. HAHAHA! It surely does help that I've heard and read good things about it to. In actuality, it was merely an impulse purchase on my part.

Here's a product description of the Cold Steel Kukri Machete off their website..."There's no single edged weapon that we can think of that can out-chop or out-cut a good Kukri. Our Kukri Machetes are those workhorses. They are available in two sizes, one has a thirteen inch blade and the other, our new "Magnum" model has a whopping seventeen inch blade. Both are ready to plow through the toughest chores life can dish out. Each features the distinctive weight-forward balance of our "top-of-the-line" models, and always present their edge on an angle so they're guaranteed to "bite" deep with every stroke. Additionally, they come complete with a sturdy Cor-Ex sheath! They're a solid value, ready for long, hard work."

The machetes that I bought are actual users. They don't just sit around waiting for the walking dead to create chaos. It gets brought out to the yard when branches and vegetation get out of hand. The Kukri does an excellent job doing that. So far, I'm impressed. The weight and balance are great in the hands, giving it awesome chopping power. I must say though, I was a bit disappointed at the sharpness right out the box. As you can see in the photos, it has a coating over the edge. It's sharp enough to chop, but not enough to slice. The good part is, a few minutes with a file are all it took to make it real sharp. And in the end, it's totally worth the price!
