    Khukuris are the iconic fighting knife of the Gurkha warriors of Nepal, but they are also used throughout Nepal and Northern India as all-purpose utility knives and weapons. This modern Khukuri features a full-profile tang, ergonomic handle shape, removable G10 scales and a selectively hardened 5160 spring steel blade. The blade is convex-ground to a zero-edge. This knife is provided with a leather belt scabbard.

    I wanted to showcase the cutting power and utility of the CSD here, as I did in last week's video for the CSD-Micro. There's a bit of unintentional comedy to it- as the tree that I selected this week was of much, much tougher wood than the tree from last week's video and I have a rough time of it! Still- the knife does work and I think impressively!

    That blade looks tenacious! It really does look like a workhorse. I don't think the video was comedic at all! That was a rather thick piece of wood there! Doing some cleanup work on the appalacian trail, i know how tough wooding like that can be. It wouldve taken several whacks with a machete to fell it, nevermind a compact(relatively) knife like that!
    The g10 looks fantastic! I love the whole look of the piece! Always nice to see what you come up with next, sir. ::high five::
