Fox extreme tactical kukri

There is no need for nonsense reinvention of what perfectly works for centuries, there can be only some restyling need. Quite simply, this Kukri is one of the best survival knives of its size. It can cut with the power of a hatchet but also be used for skinning, fine carving, digging and smashing.

While some western historians conjecture that the kukri was based on similar European weapons and brought to South Asia by Alexander the Great, other researchers give it a much longer history tracing back to the domestic sickle and the prehistoric bent stick used for hunting and later in hand-to-hand combat by giving attributes to kukri of first survival knife ever. The kukri is effective as both a chopping and a slashing weapon. Because the blade bends towards the opponent, the user need not angle the wrist while executing a chopping motion. In extreme combat situations, its heavy blade enables the user to inflict deep wounds and to cut through muscle and bone. While most famed for use in the military, the kukri is most commonly used as a multipurpose tool and is a very common agricultural and household implement in Nepal. Its use has varied from building, clearing, chopping firewood, and digging to cutting meat and vegetables, skinning animals, and opening tins.

★★★★★ I bought this as I liked the look of it and fancied trying out a kukri style knife. The knife looks really good and feels great. The design makes it a brilliant chopper. I was surprised at it's sharpness, mine was hair popping sharp. It looks, feels and performs like a far more expensive knife. The sheath is very good, it is quite rigid and seems very well made. The leg straps are rubberised on the inside to stop things sliding about. I took the upper one off as not needed with my leg size and length. It is a lot of fun to use, and like most of the knives I own just a hell of a lot of fun to fiddle about with. August 2013. This review applies to the Extreme Kukri version.

★★★★★ Spent a good year of research into getting a good Kukri, reading other reviews and blade forums watching YouTube etc! Eventually went for the Trakker, and I can honestly say it's was a bloody good choice, I already own the Parang Bushcraft which I love for the size and weight and the quality of finish on the Trakker is every bit as good, nice weight and a great grip yet again, it's an excellent tool and I was well chuffed when it turned up and had N690CO stamped on it! Result! HH excellent as ever. September 2012. This review applies to the Extreme Kukri version.

★★★★★ Good weight to the blade, though smaller than most kukris it still handles the rough stuff. Nice firm but unrestrictive leg sheath and a decent edge out of the box. Cracking service from HH too, delivery was good and sharpish.

★★★★★ Had mixed feeling about this kukri for a long time but it was this or british service issue and this one won. Thought id give a modern kukri a go , much smaller and lighter than most kukris, sheath will take a bit of getting used to as will handle but great blade all round. Cuts like a dream hope its easy to keep sharp , great service from HH thanks guys.

October 2009. This review applies to the Extreme Kukri version.

★★★★★ Zuerst was über FKMD, das steht für Fox Knives Military Division und ist ein meiner Meinung nach sehr guter Hersteller aus Maniago, Italien, der schon einige taktische/militärische Messer mit sehr viel Erfolg heraus gebracht hat.

Das Kukri ist ein Haumesser und daher auch minimal kopflastig und das ist gut so, weil damit schlägt man es in einer Richtung, seiner eigenen Schwerkraft folgend und belastet wenig das Handgelenk. Das Teil liegt mit dem ergonomisch geformten Griff in normaler Haltung aber auch „reverse“ sehr gut in der Hand. Ein traditionelles Kukri hat das Griffende zum Knauf hin vergrößert, das wäre hier noch toll gewesen. Ich würde keine Handschlaufe dran machen, denn besser es fliegt zur Not in Schlagrichtung weg, als dass es am Fangriemen zum Mann „zurück kommt“.Insgesamt ist dieses taktische Kukri mehr ausgewogen als die sehr kopflastigen Originale aus Nepal.

Das Kukri gibt es in vier Ausfertigungen. Zwei schwarze, Kling und Griff schwarz und zwei in bronzefarbiger Beschichtung der Klinge, mit grünem Griff. Ist Geschmacksache. Auch die Klinge gibt es in zwei Varianten, in dieser hier, mit der schmaleren Klinge vorne und in einer anderen mit einer bauchigeren Klinge vorne.

Mir gefiel dies hier am besten.

Dies ist ein kleineres, mittelschweres Kukri, ca. 400 Gramm,. Es ist ein Messer, eine kleine Axt/Beil und eine Machete in Kombination. Es ist niemals so gut wie eine Axt für Holzarbeiten, es ist nicht so gut wie ein Messer zum schnitzen oder entrinden und es ist nicht so gut wie ein Buschmesser um sich durch Unterholz zu schlagen oder den Lagerplatz frei zu kämpfen. Es ist eben eine Kombination und man hat weniger Ausrüstung mit.

★★★★★ Kenne dieses Messer handhabung Super ,aber ACHTUNG auch Super Gefährlich sehr große gefahr bei schnittverletzungen .

Denn dieses Messer ist von Werk aus schon richtig (da mein ich auch richtig ) Scharf.

Man kann mit übung auch starke Bäume fällen (ca .8 cm ).

Bekannter hat es mir bewiesen .

Klingenstahl sehr stark .(von vorteil ).

Bitte mit Vernunft und Verstand benützen .

★★★★★ Das Messer macht einen sehr hochwertigen und durchdachten Eindruck, sowohl was die Verarbeitung der Klinge, des Griffs wie auch die der Scheide betrifft. Über die Härte des Stahls kann ich jedoch nichts sagen. Für Kukris ist es eher klein. Es liegt jedoch im Gegensatz zu dem "großen Kukri-Bruder" von Fox sehr gut in der Hand und ist perfekt ausballanciert (ähnlich wie handgeschmiedete Kukris). Das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis halte ich für gut.

★★★★★ THIS BLADE MEETS ANYONE EXPECTATION IN A WELL MADE KNIFE OR CUTTING INSTRUMENT

GREAT JOB I LOVE IT

★★★★★ Fantastic knife as ussual with fox pieces, the coating is not as hard as it would be expected. Design and manufacturing is exceptional. I bought it from styperdoo, fantastic service.

★★★★★ Really nice knife, don't have anything bad to say, this is a real working tool not for show.

★★★★★ I really like this Kukri, it's light, very sharp, and it's got a cool shape. This would be great during the apocalypse, whether I'm fighting zombies, or other people trying to steal my Doritos, I know with this blade, there's no way those zombies are getting anywhere near my Doritos! Fox makes some beautiful blades, and I for one, can't wait to experience more of them... I highly recommend and would buy again

★★★★★ I bought this product for my boyfriend who is a knife aficionado. He is incredibly thrilled with this product. He was looking at a few other higher dollar kukari but the reviews weren't as good as this one. The whole package was great; the price, the look, the sheath, everything! We will definitely be looking into more knifes of this brand.

★★★★★ This knife is very well made. It's very balanced and considerably lighter than a standard kukri. Very sharp out of the box. As others have said, I''m not crazy about the sheath and will look to replace it soon.

★★★★★ Knife - Excellent, and deadly sharp.

Sheath - Nylon? Cut mine open the first time I went to put it back in the sheath. Not very functional for this blade.

★★★★★ little weird to sharpen but it does exactly what i need from it super tough

★★★★★ Everything I expected and more.

★★★★★ Top quality!

GREAT JOB I LOVE IT

★★★★★ Fantastic knife as ussual with fox pieces, the coating is not as hard as it would be expected. Design and manufacturing is exceptional. I bought it from styperdoo, fantastic service.

★★★★★ Really nice knife, don't have anything bad to say, this is a real working tool not for show.

★★★★★ Fox Knives, Italy has surely got themselves a winner with the Extreme Kukri! I have the bronze ceramic coating on mine, and I believe the black coating is Teflon (if nothing sticks to Teflon, how does it stick to the blade?) so I'm not sure how it performs. Given that, I'll stick to functionality. Blade is shaving sharp on all three grinds. Tango tip is thick and strong, but still piercing sharp. The handle will take some getting used to, but form you some nice bushman callouses after extended uses. It should come off easy if you want to make scales of your own. Balance is heavy forward as a chopper of this nature should be. Still quick in the hand, and good on recovery time if used as a defense tool. The N690Co steel is tough as nails, takes a wicked edge, keeps it for a good while, and sharpens up nice, though with some effort. I wouldn't throw with it, though it should be able to take its licks with that foolishness. All in all, a good bushman's tool, a fantastic weapon for defense, and a fair price if you look around. Maker direct is always the priciest option.

★★★★★ I own many "High Quality" knives, the "Fox of Italy" is one of the best in everything that I can ask for in serious blade production, I love the N690Co steel, the heat treatment, the materials used for the sheath and scales, all are top of the line. The attention to detail is right up there with many of the "One of a kind" blades I own, you get what you pay for, the price is a bit higher than some other "Blade smith's", but the overall quality and reliability is well worth the price, Thanks Amazon for the ability to buy such a fine imported "Work of Art", very functional as well!!

★★★★★ I really like this Kukri, it's light, very sharp, and it's got a cool shape. This would be great during the apocalypse, whether I'm fighting zombies, or other people trying to steal my Doritos, I know with this blade, there's no way those zombies are getting anywhere near my Doritos! Fox makes some beautiful blades, and I for one, can't wait to experience more of them... I highly recommend and would buy again

★★★★★ The best knife I own.

★★★★★ Unlike some people, I am not gaga over knives. I do not collect them or worship them. I view them as tools, much like a hammer or tape measure. That said, I am nuts over this particular example.

A kukri is one of the most versatile, general purpose knives you can own. It can chop carrots, skin an apple, cut down small trees, open a box, and you can use it defend yourself if you have to. Kukris have been used for centuries in southern Asia as for any task you can conceive of.

I won't split hairs: this example made by Fox is expensive. However with knife you get what you pay for. You can buy a kukri for 30 dollars, and truth be told for most people it will be enough to cover their needs. However, it will eventually fail, and over your lifetime you will probably go through several. My philosophy is to buy the best quality you can upfront, and therefore replace the item as few times as possible. To use an analogy, a thousand dollar car is much cheaper than a ten thousand dollar car, but when you add it maintenance and replacement cost your better off buying higher quality to begin with. Spend more money now and save more money in the long run.

The Fox knife uses a special kind of stainless steel that has cobalt added to the mixture. Brief metallurgical lesson: carbon steel blades are sharper and hold an edge better than stainless steel. Because they rust easily, they require more maintenance. Stainless steel is more resistant to corrosion n and thus requires less care, but the edge isn't as good. Adding cobalt to stainless steel bridges the gap between carbon and stainless: a good, sharp edge, but less fussy. It's a tradeoff, but I feel it is a fair one.

★★★★★ Have this in bronze/OD green. Shaving sharp out it the box, very thick steel. It feels so different in my hand than any other knife I own. It's smaller than say the Kabar version, but makes that one feel like a toy. This kukri inspires confidence as a survival chopper. It's going to outlast your ability to use it.
