Cool tool for a decent price!I recently purchased this machete from Academy Sports in Slidell, LA. I am an avid backpacker and kayaker and required a decent machete for some of the terrain I cover (Thick forests and backwater bayous). I saw the Cold Steel Kukri in the store and read several positive reviews, so I went with it (I originally wanted the Cold Steel Gladius but it isn't as practical for actual machete work). This machete is relatively well balanced and has a thicker, stronger blade than the common offerings from Coleman and Ozark Trails. The blade has a black finish, giving it a "tactical" look, and is made out of 1055 Carbon Steel. This means it will hold its edge longer and is easier to sharpen than stainless steel, but you need to keep it oiled to prevent rust. It is sturdy as well, with a full tang and decent texturized rubber grips. The grip also features a hole for a lanyard, which you can make at home using Para cord. The sheathe is suitable, made of nylon with a plastic end cap to prevent the tip of the blade from pushing through when returning it. The one issue I had with this machete is that it wasn't very sharp out of the box. The black finish they put on covers the edge, sort of making a dull "ridge" extending past the edge of the actual steel. Simply running it over a medium/fine grinding wheel (for knife sharpening) will remove the finish and expose a semi sharp edge. Kukris are a top pick for hacking through the brush and the Cold Steel Kukri doesn't disappoint for only $22.

Carbon Steel not Stainless SteelI bought this item the other day . I was looking at the SOG it had a bigger and better grip . But when I picked it up and started to leave . I was reading the package and noticed the knife was made out of stainless steel . It was $ 34.95 the Cold Steel was $21.95 and made from carbon steel . Price didn't have anything to do with it. I love this blade .

Hello, I must ask since I've no access to a regular computer (w/trifocals and a not-so-smartphone screen it's difficult to see details), that it's made by "Cold Steel". What type of sheath does this have? Is this made in US/Taiwan/China? Thanks, Randy.
