Nice review on the Kukri. You need to go get one. Very affordable and durable.
Breathing heavy from running away from a bear that tried to attack me in the woods. I sat down for a moment to catch my breath, realizing that I am now lost. Running away from that bear made me head in a direction that I did not know. I took off my backpack and opened it up to grab some water to drink. Thinking that I am going to have to stay hear for the night considering that it was getting dark. Survival rule number 1 & 2. Stay in one place and do not panic.
Looking around the area, I can see that their is enough material to build a small shelter and fire wood for the night. I reached for the Kukri that was attached to my backpack I got from Lansky and started chopping away at the wood. “Wack, wack” I was chopping away at the wood, making different links for my shelter. Once I was done cutting the wood, I pulled out my 550 cord and tied it all together.
After completing the shelter, I started cutting wood for a fire. Man, I could not believe that this Kukri was holding strong and was still pretty sharp after cutting plenty of wood. I took one piece of wood and wacking it into small pieces for kneeling was a breeze. At last getting it all together, I pulled out a piece of flint and with one strike with my Kukri, a spark flew off of the flint and hit the kneeling just right and “woosh” the fire was going. I took the Kukri and with a downward motion, stuck it in a piece of wood while I continued to throw fuel on the fire. Just think, I got the Kukri just last week and now I know it is a great tool add for my emergency hiking bag. Thanks Lansky for the great tool and for a great price.
The Lansky Kukri is carefully designed after the famous workhorse tool of the Gurkha warriors of Nepal. It features an aggressive 13 inch full-tang carbon steel blade, an extra-safe robust hand guard and ballistic nylon sheath.
