um I think I read an article in Tactical Knives that the kukris from "himalayan imports" were very good .
also you might try the cold steel LTC

I am a nobody most of the time and a sombody none of the time . and I am proud of it .
Gunner posted this question on the general forum as well, where it's garnered a lot more responses. If Gunner doesn't mind, can we have everyone respond there, so everyone can see all responses in one place?

This has the potential to be a great string, and it'd be nice if everyone saw what everyone else wrote.
