Re: Smith&Wesson BrushHog Kukri
Yep, your experience pretty much sounds like mine.
I do truly admire above most the Gurkha soldiers who originally carried this type knife but I also recognize the fact that they carry and use this strange blade every day whereas most of us (meaning Americans) don't even use a pocketknife daily.
I'm a trained knife fighter, and I do see why this knife is great. It does take daily use and familiarization though. I've had mine (A more traditional model) since I was 15, and still prefer a machete for cutting brush. That's what machetes are for.
I have a nice broadsword with a proper edge too, it still doesn't do well in brush. It's for cutting off a different type of limb.
Knife fighting? Now there we get into a debate...
Karma is just justice, without the satisfaction. And I don't believe in justice.
