    hi , OKC and you all.

    yesterday i got a Ontario kukri , it looks soooo cool and move fast in hand.

    do you think OKC just do it right? i mean it has a very very thin profile , especially the part near the point , very thin.

    do you think it can stand the force of hard batoning?

    I think it's the best Kukri for the money. YouTube is full of videos of people beating the snot out of it, haven't heard of a failure yet. Sheath sucks, but I just have mine lashed to the exterior of a pack.

    does it come sharp ready to use or do you have to de-burr and sharpen it, like a Cold Steel?
    It looks like a good knife.

    the kukri fits my hands well , very comfy , but the only thing i dislike it is that the front part was alot of way too thin down for a chopper .
    in one of pics , you can see that the comparision shot the kukri side with a dalicate folder , almost with a same thickness on the spine .
    As for sp10, it has a dalicate & exaggerated clip point ,but the point more roubust than the kukri . sp10 leaving more steel near the point , make it very useful & stable.

    do you really think 3mm thickness can withstand the force of batoning ?
    how about baton it though wood with big knots ?
    i definitely don't think so.

    i set it as a stout machete , suits for cutting and light chopping .
    just my personal opinions above.
    thanks

    I am VERY impressed with the Ontario Kuk that I bought my father in law for his b day. In fact, I think that it might be the best knife purchase in the chopper world, dollar for dollar, that there is.

    With that being said, I am slowly building up my Khukuri collection so that I can do a YouTube comparison of all of them! I can't wait!

    That's a pretty good description. It's like a machete that's easier to use because you don't swing your whole arm. Keep in mind, the kukri was originally a farming implement. I've seen plenty of chopping with it. As for batoning - naturally when you baton, it's never a strictly proper use of a knife, but there are better ones out there for that.

    In my books it's the best value modern khukuri under $100 and the best from the big western makers all the way up until the CS Gurkha at more than triple the price.
