Royal Kukri Machete with sheath
A good Kukri is a stalwart ally in a tight spot and an indispensable survival tool. It is hard to find a more versatile knife.
Cold Steel President Lynn C. Thompson has been exploring the potential of the Kukri for over two decades. When he chose to design
a new Kukri, he looked to his many hours fighting in Cold Steel’s training facility for inspiration. He and his team spared no
pains, endlessly sparring with different prototypes looking for ways to improve upon this already near perfect design.
Lynn recognized that many of the qualities that make a great knife also make a great bushcraft tool: A sharp blade, a
strong tip, a good hand protection and a versatile handle are all key elements. Stripping the Kukri back to its bare basics, he
then began re-designing the knife from the ground up.
The re-imagined blade was 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 with its integral guard kept the user’s precious fingers safe from harm while considerably changing the knife’s balance
The newly christened Royal Kukri was then extensively field-tested. Proving to be an outstanding multi-functional bush
knife, capable of the toughest bushcraft chores, from chopping firewood to dispatching wounded game, it also provides the comfort
of a last resort self-defense option.
With a rust-resistant baked-on matte black coating, the fully sharpened 1055 high carbon steel blade is safely and securely held
in a sturdy Cor-Ex™ sheath.
