A modern version of the traditional tool of Central Asia, the Gator Kukri Machete is a multi-purpose blade. The Kukri has a long history of service around the world which can be linked to its high functionality, designed for cutting, chopping, slicing, hacking and much more, making it an excellent tool for agriculture, woodworking, culinary aspects, hunting, utility purposes, etc.
The Gator Kukri Machetes blade is constructed from 1050 steel which is known for its strength and durability. The blade is single edged and inwardly curves near the handle and outwardly curves midway up, this shape allows the blade to be used for a variety of tasks as well as giving it superior cutting power. Additionally, Gator Kukri Machete is full-tang, meaning that the blade descends all the way into the handle providing the wielder with a better grip and greater control.
The handle is made from Gerbers popular Gator grip which offers both a stylish look and practical grip through its textured design and material. The grip allows for a comfortable purchase, enabling the wielder to confidently and securely use the blade. Additionally, the Gator Kukri Machete comes with a built-in wrist lanyard, increasing the blades security.
