RedneckViking: A tora blades kukuri would slap both of these silly and them its bitch. Just sayin.
Coolnicknameguy: I'll take usa over china regardless of price any day.. even if I have to buy a custom sheath cause that stock 1 looks cheep..
The Voluntaryist Absolutioninist: By right ear was lonely = (
EatTinker: Are there videos comparing the K-bar Kukri and Ontario's Kukri? I can't find any, despite the countless other comparisons.
Mark K: I have both a cold steel and a real kukri from nepal and i prefer the cold steel for the modern materials.
SSsturmlein34: Why not get the real thing ! A genuine Kukri made in Nepal - Kukuri House !
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.
Mike B: How do the traditionals compare with the cs and ontario in performance?
Mike B: How do the traditionals compare with the
DannoCrutch: Good thorough comparison. Glad to see you sharpened that traditional Kukri.
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
benhizzle: Check out your own videos, you have at least three videos on your channel that show this model with the black finish.
Vincent van Rijn: Is it just me, or did your left ear enjoy this video too, headphone users?
johnqsurvivor: Does the Ontario fit in the Cold Steel sheath?
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 if you can find out from someone there exactly when these were made and for how long would be great.
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)
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.
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
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.
