This heavy-duty chopper gets it’s shape from it’s older sibling, the Kukri Machete. At about 80% the size of the larger version, the Combat Kukri performs just as well at clearing brush and small tree limbs. It’s smaller profile makes it a little easier for toting around – at just shy of a pound, it’s a more appropriately sized tool for combat carry as well. It has a Kukri shaped blade that is flat ground to a 20 degree angle. The non-reflective black blade has a Rockwell hardness of 56-58. A strategically placed finger guard at the top of the handle protect hands. Kraton handle is grooved and textured for a sure grip. Includes heavy duty polyester sheath.
