Comparison Of Cold Steel Gurkha Kukri And Ontario Kukri Knife (1080p HD)




What do you think about this video?

Adam Thomas: Weight in grams? How many kilometers do you put on your car a year? How many centimeters is your TV screen? Get real dude.

Jose Dosil: Is the back of the OKC kukri 6420 blade 1/4' thick through out the entire blade or does it get smaller then 1/4' after 2'' from the handle.

benhizzle: Check out your own videos, you have at least three videos on your channel that show this model with the black finish.

csknives: If it was with old Voyagers it's a closeout. There's no doubt it's an old model (because our current line up of SK5 Kukris don't have a black finish)

Harry Knights: Great video man, glad I found your channel. I've got a Nepalese Kukri (Kukri Max), with a western handle, 1000 grams is heavier than I thought. Been wishing on this CS blade for a long time but still can't decide if the, obviously incomparably better, cold steel sheath is worth the price difference to the Ontario...

SHTF Gear: @cstarr3 If I get a KaBar, I will make sure to compare it with my other kukris. Thanks for watching.

csknives: After speaking to the OP I discovered that his knife was purchased at one of our Parking Lot Sale events - which leads me to believe that it is one of our discontinued knives, not a fake. I was simply trying to help the OP find out the origin of his knife and help him should he have inadvertently purchased a counterfeit. Thanks

csknives: The Cold Steel SK5 Gurkha Kukri doesn't come with a black blade...Is that the light or is that a black blade? You may have a fake knife there...

SHTF Gear: @0hbeast you won't regret it. It is a great knife.

SHTF Gear: @Michaeladar I didnt think anyone would notice :) Good catch.

ashlayyy189: The Ontario is pretty much a Cold Steel Kukri mixed with the Kabar Kukri

Mike B: How do the traditionals compare with the

Mick Romny: By right ear was lonely = (

Michaeladar: at 1:40 you forgot to edit. lol

SHTF Gear: @ArmyStinger150 Thanks bud. That SPAX 16 looks awesome. Might have to save up for one...

ArmyStinger150: Great comparison man. The Cold Steel kukri machete is a great machete. I do like Ontario products as well, I have the SPAX 16, very nice.

acrocanthosaurus4: the black blade looks awesome! you should make a a black version anyway.

csknives: We often sell rare knives at our Parking Lot Sale, especially in the 2011 events as they were also our moving sales (we had emptied our warehouse for the move to our new HQ). It was probably on our closeout / rarities table. It's quite possibly an LTC Kukri but I cannot tell from this video clip alone. Members of our customer services team will be able to tell you straight away, they are much more knowledgeable than me in regards to older model discontinued items

Mike B: How do the traditionals compare with the cs and ontario in performance?

SHTF Gear: @commieforniatactical the Cold Steel kukri machete is a great machete. You are right that it doesn't come sharp at all. I used a file to do the initial sharpening before moving to a stone and it saved a lot of time.

johnqsurvivor: Does the Ontario fit in the Cold Steel sheath?

Mark K: I have both a cold steel and a real kukri from nepal and i prefer the cold steel for the modern materials.

SHTF Gear: Makes sense. It was before the move to the new warehouse. I don't think it was the rarities table though. It was next to a bunch of last-gen voyagers which I also picked up a XL tanto of. If you search youtube for 'Walking Tour of the Cold Steel Parking Lot Sale', you will see my video and the SK5 kukris are shown at 2:17.

Dean Counts: Used both in the field for SAR, Cold Steel stolen, replaced with better bargain Ontario. I completely disagree that better knife is the Cold Steel, the big difference is the traditional Kukri heavy forward design of the Ontario you noted, it comes down on brush, wood whatever with much more force and really reduces workload. People get so hung up on that crappy sheath with Ontario instead of the knife itself or they dont bother actually working it in the field hard.

SSsturmlein34: Why not get the real thing ! A genuine Kukri made in Nepal - Kukuri House !

SHTF Gear: @csknives if you can find out from someone there exactly when these were made and for how long would be great.

cstarr3: If you ever add a Ka-Bar Kukri to your collection, can your viewers look forward to a comparison between these two and the Ka-bar?

Vincent van Rijn: Is it just me, or did your left ear enjoy this video too, headphone users?

commieforniatactical: I use a cold steel kukri machete. It works for me. I just had to spend an hour or so sharpening it.

SHTF Gear: This is from the parking lot sale on May 2011. I have a video that shows probably 3 of 4 of these at a table in the parking lot sale. I have seen these SK5 kukris with the black finish in other people's videos as well. It can't be that old but it certainly isn't one that you currently make. I am very surprised that being the manufacturer, you don't know anything about it.

commieforniatactical: @shtfgear Ya, I have a fair amount of skill with sharpening. I like that it at least comes with a big bevel. That makes it easier to start off. I got it paper cutting, without making the edge to delicate.

EatTinker: Are there videos comparing the K-bar Kukri and Ontario's Kukri? I can't find any, despite the countless other comparisons.

csknives: I'm not sure what model that is. If you got it at the Parking Lot Sale it might be a much older Kukri. We certainly don't make an SK5 model with a black finish any more.

Varg1963: I have the Cold Steel gurka kukri knife myself, it is a great knife for its intended use, but It would be nice to see a chopping comparison between the Cold Steel gurka kukri knife and the classic kukri knife.

DannoCrutch: Good thorough comparison. Glad to see you sharpened that traditional Kukri.

ArmyStinger150: @shtfgear If you get it, it's worth the money. I will make a new vid on it...I don't have one as a review or using it, so I think I will.

Plastic Beach Comic: I think you did well editing the two videos. It was a little annoying for you to explain that to your audience though. They care more about the knives than how you present it. The only thing I saw in your editing that was a bit off was the fading time was a bit slow. When it's too slow it's really distracting. I'm a graphic designer if you need any help feel free to contact me. We can do some barter.

SHTF Gear: @csknives I bought it at your factory parking lot sale so I sure hope it isn't a fake.

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
