Hi all, I've never owned one of these blades and after trawling these forums somewhat I have to say that i'm fully getting that 'i've got to get me one of those....!' vibe. So to that end I have a couple of questions: 1/ What would make an excellent all around utility chopper, able to be taken out to the back of beyond attached to a back pack and to not feel like an anchor? I want to be be able to 'use' this blade (and not just stare at it) for camp work and scrub and foliage clearing and other genearl jobs that would usually fall to a good knife or hawk. Also should I be concerned at the handle material of these blades as I have horrible ideas of a wooden grip splitting or some such similar tragedy? Your input would be really appreciated. 2/ Has anyone here ever had a Kukri send down to New Zealand or does anyone know anyone who has and if so did they have any problems of any kind with customs etc? Any and all input is welcome.
