Default Full Tang Combat Bolo KUKHRI Knife

This is the one from the Book Of Eli. Ordered on the 21st and arrived on the 25th. Heavy duty steel blade and a durable nylon sheath.

I read the reviews by other people, but the item was better than expected in every way. The best toy for under $20 you can buy. This is no flimsy machete. Feels right in the hand.

Damn! That looks like one hell of a thick spine. What's the grade of steel Ineff?

And where is a cutting report?

I am not sure of the steel grade. There was no associated paperwork attached to it. The cutting report will have to wait a bit as I just opened the box 30 minutes ago and have a ton on my plate at the moment. We just lost a dog (no fault of mine) and the wife is a wreck. Haven't had any sleep in 48 hours.

Sorry to hear that Ineff - Hope the pain gets easier for you and yours soon.

I am going to be a wreck if my big guy passes away before I do.

You should get her a cat; she won't be so attached.

The worst of it is that I had to bring him to the shelter. He bit the baby. breaking the skin. And the next very next day he jumped the fence and attacked the Time Warner dude. Unfortunately for the Time Warner dude, our dog is a bit of a racist. Hates Mexicans. Both these issues forced my hand. I'll choose my son over anything every time. If this knife had shown up three days earlier, I'd have that report for ya.
