I have a carbonV LTC, and have compared her to a kukri machete, the kryton handle on the LTC is a dead give away, the kukri machete has a polyproplean(spelling?) handle. Of the two I would go with the LTC every time, a far more refined tool.

From that pic it is very difficult to see and detail that will tell you if it is a LTC or a kukri machete.

I couldn't agree more about the Carbon V LTC, it's incredible, but are you also saying that this one in the picture on the eBay page attached is an LTC like I think it is or the kukri machete stated?

Thanks, I just noticed your answer.

I was thinking it might be because of the brass lanyard hole in the handle and the leather sheath, but I'm still not sure. I bought it because it cost next to nothing, but can't stop thinking about until I get it and know 100% whether it is or isn't. The suspense is killing me!!!

The picture looks like the LTC as it has the saber grind and the leather sheath, but the discription looks like a machete.  The listing has ended, so if you bought it, you can't go wrong at the price either way. 
Great deal, as it looks like an LTC.

Thank you for the support and confirmation! I just keep pinching myself like I'm dreaming every time I look at the picture, like I said it's killing me!

Umm, that really looks like an LTC.
You see in this world there's two kinds of people, my friend. Those with loaded guns, and those who dig. You dig.

Yeah looks like mine did when it was new. The grind is what gives it away for me. The sheath is typical for the LTC as well.
