    That WWII has a remarkably low weight for its length (considering it's warranted for chopping).
    Costs $20 more than a KLVUK, but comes with a sheath, karda, chakmak, and a couple more inches of khukuri.

    Hope you got it. The WWII models are my favorite! As Steve mentioned above, this one is Relatively light considering it's length, but that will make it quite fast and hopefully nimble. My 16.5" WWII weights 21oz, not only is it a good medium duty chopper, it is also pretty good at brush work. Bet yours will be about the same.

    I'm hoping to get a lot of utilitarian use out of the WWII. It's my first kukri, but I'm tempted by the 20 inch kumar kobra here too. I just don't know what I would use a blade that big for, that the WWII model couldn't do just fine. I'm not a martial artist, and for just whacking a path through grass, I'm not sure such an impressive blade would be needed. In other words, somebody do your best to talk me into getting the kobra also

    I'm taking the advice from this discussion:

    Maybe I won't know what I want until I know what I have.

    You could use the Kobra to defend against someone who tries to take your WWII.

    Actually there've been many discussions on this forum about which khukuris are best for which purpose, and the question of self defense always arises. As far as I'm concerned, the 17.5" 23oz WWII in this thread is a good length and weight for self defense, as well as being an excellent chopper. It's one of the designs that works as an all-around knife, whereas the Kobra is more specialized.

    The Kobra in this thread looks like a very nice knife at an excellent price. It's not a bad choice for a second khukuri (after your WWII). You won't get "a lot of utilitarian use" out of the Kobra, but you might be glad to have it as a piece of functional (and durable) art, or if someone challenges you to a duel.

    Haha, I have a habit of showing up to macho parties in a wheelchair and/or crutches. Saves me a lot of grief. You would be surprised how troublesome life can be when you always introduce yourself as a professional wrestler (or whatever). It's funny until somebody tries to sucker punch you to prove their manhood. Naturally, I'm exaggerating The kobra would suit an exaggerator perfectly, but really, I'm try to cut back on that, haha.

    I'm still going to do my best to come up with an excuse to buy more kukris. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon, and for the rest of my life! Maybe with some martial arts training I could use one like a helicopter to get to work on time through all the traffic? Maybe it wouldn't even need to fly to make people get out of the way...

    Congratulations. For a does almost anything camping, hiking, outdoor knife, IMHO, a kukri is the way to go, and i think this one will fit your needs particularly well.
    You don't have to be afraid to use your WW2, and hard. Bigger and badder (heavier and pricier) isn't always better when you have to carry it, cut brush and low branches out of the flat spot you are pitching on, or dig a tent-peg out of the ground. And you cannot clean a fish or dice an onion with a friggin hatchet. Why would i pay for "super steel" when the pressure required to break ordinary 5160 steel would crush the bones in your wrist first anyway.

    I think you made the right call all the way. Post a review when you get it. photos, the first chop, etc.

    A review? First chop? Uh, what if I have a dirty little family secret? Yes, it's true, I bought the WWII to hack the gristle off of granny's legs

    After you open the package from Yangdu, and the HI kukri fever sets in. You will be posting "WOW, I love my kukri!", just like *we* all did.
