I picked up a couple Kukuris after watching them being made in Nepal. I had previously watched them use this tool for a number of sacrifices including a water buffalo, and was quite interested in the original Gurkha weapon. Of the two I bought, I used one of them mercilessly and ended up giving the other to my Dad. I found it to be a neat concept but uncomfortable and soft (not the greatest heat treat).
My recommendation if you need a Kukuri would be to purchase Cold Steel.

You can't go wrong with any HI khukuri. I own the BAS, Chitlangi and AK Bowie. Love'em all. I think the HI khuks will serve you better if your looking for a utility type blade. The Cold Steel khuks are much thinner than HI's, they are more fighters than anything. Check out the HI forum at www.bladeforums.com for good deals on "Blems".

Ang Khola

Having owned both the ang khola and the cold steel offering I would go with the ang khola.

1. garantee is better,
2. handle wears better, and works better on a large chopper,
3. handmade,
4.edge geometry more appropriate to a large chopper,
5. cheaper,
6. your money supports the khamis in nepal, who make several times the annual percapita income, because Bill Martino Rocks.
7. each blade is unique
