DO some initial research and come back with some more specific questions, I mean fuck if you want something put in just a LITTLE effort, its not our prerogative to give you all the information you think you need.
>>664968 Don't get an original one. Steel is a high carbon spring steel which can be sharpened within 30 seconds on the stone and dulls halfway through a Din A4 paper. If you want to use it as a pry bar go for it, you can never break one of the full tang models, the steel is that thick and tough.
The Condor heavy kukri is nice. http://www.amazon.com/Condor-Tools-Knives-Heavy-10-Inch/dp/B007QUVJ84/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1452772612&sr=8-1&keywords=condor+kukri It's 28% off right now.
For Traditional kukris, go for tora blades. Second option would be himalayan imports.
Regimental Kukri Fixed Blade Knife on Bud k is very nice. Dont get me wrong though, just received mine three days ago and both the sharpening knives and scabbard are utter crap but thats not why youd buy it.(they say leather, I say cardboard dipped in red wax) The kukri is breathtakingly beautiful and is a very heavy piece
>>667200 I really wanna get a HI, but there fairly expensive. I want an m43 but they are out of my price range for a knife I'm gonna spend hacking on stuff. Been waiting for one to appear in a Deal of the Day.
I was thinking about Kukri House because their knives are a little cheaper. The one I was thinking about was around 70 bucks.
And yeah I have read up on Tora but they seem to take a long time to deliver.
I got a kukri from khukuri house based in nepal. Made from really strong spring steel. Shipping included, I paid around 70 bucks for it. Comes with the sharpening knife (choctaw) and a small shitty skinning knife and a sheath made of wood wrapped in waterbuffalo hide.
I think it's a great knife and has served me well so far. I've heard people say good things about most nepalese kukris: himalayan imports and khukuribladesdotcom Also ontario kukri and cold steel are decent.
I'm currently looking into making a kydex sheath for this one so I can easily mount it to my battle belt and backpack.
>>665077 I ordered one online and was disappointed when it arrived literally without an edge. It wasn't ground at all, just a blank of a machete and a plastic handle. But I'm pretty certain I could really fuck someone up with it, now that it's sharp.
>>665077 That's their machete, not their "real" kukri. I have one, it's a good machete, but it's about a quarter inch too thin to be a kukri.
>>664968 I have one that looks just about like the one in your pic, made by genuine Nepalese people from genuine used-up truck springs. That raised ring in the handle sucks. I ground mine off and will put another handle on it with a shape more ergonomic to me. I'm also going to treat the leading quarter inch of the blade with casenit because it doesn't hold an edge well.
