Cold Steel Royal Kukri Machete

The NEW 2013 Cold Steel Royal Kukri Machete designed by Lynn C Thompson is truly a versatile knife--an indispensable survival tool that is zombie-apocalypse proof!
 The Royal Kukri is a great fighting knife and also a great bushcraft tool. It's sharp blade, strong tip, good hand protection and a versatile handle are all key. The new re-imagined blade has been presented at an entirely new angle, keeping the cutting power that made the Kukri the stuff of legend, but increasing its thrusting and piercing power. The handle is made of high-grip Kraton and there is an integral guard to keep fingers safe from harm while changing the balance and heft of the knife considerably.
 The Royal Kukri has been extensively field-tested by Cold Steel. It has proven to be an outstanding multi-functional bush knife, capable of the toughest bushcraft chores, from chopping firewood to dispatching wounded game.  It also is a great fighting knife for use as a last ditch self-defense weapon.
Cold Steel's Royal Kukri has a rust resistant baked on matte black coating and the fully sharpened 1055 Carbon Steel blade is safely and securely held in a sturdy Cor-Ex sheath.
