Gardening with a kukri machete - Monday, June 18, 2012 10:49 AM ( #1 )
After having reasonably settled into my new home, it was time to fix the mess of a yard I have. There were and are still lots of bushes and shrubs that just need to go and I looked at them and then my kukri machete and then them again. Never has gardening been so much fun then when I'm using my kukri machete to do it. Some jobs are too small for an ax but just to big for a shovel and that's when my kukri comes in. I really don't like power tools and the kukri machete can mow a bush down almost as fast as power tools hedge trimmers! My new lawn is full of rocks of varying sizes and the kukri machete took one serious beating and kept coming back for more and was a breeze to fix up after I used and abused it.
The road to greatness is paved with innumerable failures.

Yeah those Himalayan farmers sure had their thinking caps on when they designed the kukri. I like using my kukri machete for gardening too. Or if it's not on me, my Rajah II is not bad.

Thanks for sharing. Sounds like a fun day of work/play!

The Kukri Machete sure is a pretty indestructable knife!!!
