    THE SIEGLE KUK BEFORE THE FOLLOWING WORKOUT I HAVE GIVEN this custom in months that followed. 1/4 in. stock in 5160 with micarta. this blade has proven legendary in cutting everything from trash cedar elm to the real tough mesquite & bodark [bois'darc] easily slices paper after chopping for 1 to 2 hr. workouts. at 2 lbs. i do'nt recommend it for hikers going more than 3 or 4 miles but it excells at the chopping workouts many of us enjoy.---dennis

    It's certainly more khukuri-like than most other non Nepali knives.

    Using 1/4" is a bit on the lightweight side for my tastes, but if it works for your woods...it's meeting it's bill.

    certainly my experience with kuks is limited but at 72 i do'nt know if i could swing anything heavier. i took down a 25 ft. mesquite in 35 minutes on brothers ranch.--dennis

    As I said..."if it works for your woods...it's meeting it's bill."

    Light for my taste and needs.

    well it looks like a pretty sweet kukri to me,or i guess purists would call it a klo,anyway about 2009 i started out on a boker tactical kukri about 50.00 i think.now i have bought 4 nepal made ones and indian one, two american and a chinese or taiwan.yours sounds like a stout chopper.1/4 inch of the right steel hardened ,tempered right wouldnt be nothing to sneeze at,i wouldnt think.i know some of my khhi"s are almost 1/2 thick.

    Mr. Siegle does good work. I've encountered his blades before.

    Might suggest that you contact him directly...he's not a forum supporter.
