This is a quick review, as I still have some things to put this one through. Weather here has been a rela crap shoot.
Anyway, A few weeks ago I get this this enormous package in the mail. I know that it must be the kukri that I have been drooling over for quite some time. The first thing that I notice is that it is beautifully finished. This rivals the GRS by Bura, I ain't lying either.
It wieghs a tad over 4 3/4 lbs. It is thirty inches plus a little. One of the nicer days a few weeks back I took this one out for a spin. WOW!!! I was severing saplings that were 3 and 4 inches in diameter. It was like cutting butter. So after the trees I moved on to som logs that needed to be split, well this kukri was spliting maple logs, not pine, not poplar, but one of the harder domestic woods. After I got the correct swing down it performed as well as a 3/4 length axe. If not better.
There is a learning curve to this one. A big kukri takes a while to figure out how to use it, but after you do the the shrubs are in real danger. Thanks again Uncle Bill this really is a great knife. Even my friends who are Katana snobs were impressed by this one.
Life is short, art endures.
