    Got the sk5 version in the mail yesterday. Compared it to my carbon V and was very disappointed with the sk5. The handle grip was loose and the kydex case looked like it was made for a child. The plastic piece that holds the belt loop to the case is as cheap as they come. The sharpening at the tip was several degrees off compared to the rest of the edge. I have 5 different models of cold steel knives and with the exception of breaking the blade on my mag II Tanto (early 90's model) CS knives have never failed me. Maybe more attention should be directed towards quality control and superior raw products and less on video hype. Hey CS, your reputation is only as good as the satisfaction of your last customer.

    I own the machete version, which works very well after a bit of sharpening. After sharpening the SK-5 Ghurka Kukri, this thing is scary sharp! It performs five times better than the machete version and downs 10" diameter deadwood in minutes with very little effort due to the heavy, solid weight of the blade. The performance and edge retention of this blade is simply phenominal!

    I love the Gukru Kukri, however with that being said, I would really like to see a training version of the Kukri become available. Keep up the great work Cold Steel.

    increadible knife.i am a butcher and i tested this knife at work on a pig carcase easily severing one of the trotters off a hind leg which is thick,hard bone.I stupidly tryed to sever a femur bone from a beef carcase but chipped the edge,hovever this is probably the toughest bone on a cow.a bit of filing with a eze-lap diamond hone and a few strokes on a coarse steel and it was cutting well again.I tested it on a 12" log and it cut like a racing axe(competition woodchopping axe).highly recomended.

    I saw the demonstrations on youtube with a couple of guys just full on testing the power of this tool and its a beast! I'm going to purchase one right after I get back from Basic training and AIT this summer, I'll be back in November and I will make sure I have this beast everywhere I go! I'll have it hunting, camping, hiking, and heck even fishing! this is a true warriors weapon and tool, I love the design for two three reasons. 1. the curving of the blade reminds me of the Roman Kopis sword. 2. its multi-purpose. and 3. its simple, durable, powerful, just right, and not only came from the Nepalese, but that it suits anyone with a rough hand! I want one and I'm getting one!
