Price/value Ratio

KABAR kukri
Looking for a BIFL Machete
It's a little more tactical and a little more expensive than you're looking for, but when I was doing forestry work I really liked my Kabar Kukri machete. That thing would cut through 4" grape vines if you swung hard enough.

Schrade Extreme Survival Large Fixed Blade Knife
Great knife. The "All-Rounder."
I love this knife. Now it is important to keep in mind intended purpose for gear, especially knives which come in such a wide variety. This knife's purpose is all-rounder and survival. This means it is sort of a jack-of-all trades, master of none blade. What do I mean? 1. It's too heavy to EDC unles...

Blade

KABAR kukri
Overall I gave the KA-Bar
Overall I gave the KA-Bar Kukri Machete a 5 star rating with no problems or regrets. After clearing a fairly large area of heavy grass and weeds around a brush pile in my backyard, I can say this machete performs flawlessly. Short enough to swing easily but heavy enough to get the job done. The blad...

Schrade Extreme Survival Large Fixed Blade Knife
Schrade SCHF1 Extreme Survival Knife | BladeReviews.com
It is a little on the heavy side, but it is a very tough blade and offers some great versatility from 1 tool. It’s no wonder why the SCF1, the SCHF2 and the SCHF1SM are some of the most popular Schrade survival knives.

Sheath

KABAR kukri
Order a kydex sheath simultaneously when buying this kukri because the stock sheath is 100% cheap.
I just received this "KaBar-Kukri" moments ago, and for the money I'm highly pleased with the overall quality of this kukri. I recently bought the SOG-GURKA KUKRI, and the KaBar is definitely of a higher quality than the SOG model. In all fairness, the SOG has it's high points. It's price is two thi...

Durability

KABAR kukri
No nonsense blade meant to be used and abused
I bought this Ka-Bar 8 months ago and intended to use it as a camp/utility knife. I don't typically review items so let me just get right to it. Buy it it now. If you are interested enough in this blade to sift through the reviews then just buy it, you will not be disappointed. If you are still read...

Handle

KABAR kukri
Needs better handle grip
Not too bad. Comes with an OK edge and is OK for the price. Not the best metal, but good. I got it for camping and self defense. The handle is a bit slick and isn't really that great a grip considering how this is to be used...a hard slick handle on a blade that is being slung in a arc with some for...

Material

KABAR kukri
Buyers Beware
I bought this blade in May and I've used it lightly since that time. I'm pretty disappointed in the quality of it. I had a Ka-Bar when I deployed in 2006, and loved it. It was durable and held an edge exceptionally well. When I was shopping for this machete, my experience with Ka-Bar quality was a m...

Weight

KABAR kukri
Still Hacking Away a Few Years Down the Road
The black finish is pretty pointless if you're going to actually use it and put it through its paces. The edge isn't impervious and will take the occasional chip. The curve and angle are not as intense as some other kukri blades. But it is a workhorse. I've had mine for nearly nine years now and it ...

Schrade Extreme Survival Large Fixed Blade Knife
Better for survival and bushcraft than the Morakniv
Although other reviewers have covered the knife in detail, I concur that this knife is an excellent value for the money and an overall great survival knife. I also own a Morakniv bushcraft knife, which is also an excellent knife, but in terms of bushcraft and survival I think the Schrade SCHF9 is a ...
