KA-BAR Tactical Kukri Machete Knife KB1280 is a smaller, tactics-oriented version of the large scale Kukri machete, packing the same perfectly-weighted power into a smaller, lighter frame. This KA-BAR knife is about 80% smaller than its larger cousin, and it sports a 8.5" blade made of 1095 Cro-Van steel; the blade's dropped tip gives you improved power on downward strokes, allowing you to clear brush while still having an excellent machete for self-defense. KABAR Plain Edge Tactical Kukri Machete gives you superb grip over the knife with a Kraton G handle in a comfortable oval shape, and its one-sided finger guard will protect your hands from the blade. KA-BAR has coated the Tactical Kukri in an attractive black finish from blade to handle, and its included heavy polyester sheath makes it easy to carry from site to site. For a smaller, lighter, faster version of the full-size Kukri machete, choose the KA BAR Tactical Kukri Kraton Handle Machete.
