This knife hands down is one of the best-made and most usable knives of its kind I have ever purchased from any source.
This blade arrived promptly after ordering. Well. As prompt as your postal service can make it. First, handling of the kukri and you can feel the ergonomics of one of Mr. Harsey's designs. The knife is made of thick bar stock 1095 CroVan with the balance forward of the handle to make chopping easier. I really like the feel of the handle plus it was very easy to add a lanyard using the provided opening. The sheath is a well thought out accessory. Except for the hook and loop strap. The sheath has no openings to accommodate the blade shape, rather it was designed to fit the entire blade from inception. I also like the retention lock. Keeps the kukri secure and it can release with a flick of the thumb. There are lots of grommet holes and slots on the periphery for other attachment options. Overall it's worth the price for the design, quality of build & materials used in all aspects of construction. I wouldn't hesitate to take this knife bush whacking because it's a tough product and well thought out.
Excellent field knife, perfect size to lash to your day pack! Spartan quality is exceptional. Highly recommend!
Introducing the Spartan-Harsey Kukri
The Spartan-Harsey Kukri knife, expertly crafted by the legendary knife maker William W. Harsey Jr., is meticulously designed for heavy-duty outdoor chopping, embodying versatility and durability. With an 8 6/8” blade, this kukri serves as a formidable all-around tool, utilizing its center of mass to effortlessly slice through dense objects while maintaining the power to chop effectively. Originally renowned for its military applications, the kukri finds widespread use as a multipurpose tool in Nepal, proving invaluable for various tasks in fields and homes.
This exceptional blade has proven its worth in diverse activities, including building, clearing, chopping firewood, digging, food preparation (slaughtering animals, cutting meat and vegetables), skinning animals, and even opening cans. Its design allows it to function as a smaller knife when utilizing the narrower part of the blade near the handle, while the heavier and wider end, toward the tip, serves as an efficient axe or small shovel.
Manufactured in Olean, NY, this kukri is a result of a collaboration with the skilled craftsmen at KA-BAR knives, ensuring quality and precision in every detail.
