The blade was in great shape and well protected in grease. Once it was cleaned up I took a file to the edge checking the temper. The spine is soft and the edge was very hard, perfect for a big chopper. The next few days were spent mounting it on a horn handle and making a leather sheath. After putting a shaving sharp convex edge on the blade (which didn't take much) it was ready to go. Oak, Hickory and Elm have been getting cleared off of our property ever since, the edge still shaves!

Unfortunately did not come with a kanzo (bolster) so it will be awhile before I try to assemble it. But still worth every penny as they're not making any more of these.

this product did not please me .the blade has been scraped or/ or sanded , then covered in sticky stuff like i have found on guns not old. also it has a major flaw at the blade tip about 1/2 in back on both sides. acc has done this to me before . not the way i did business . i will keep the blade because i should have sent it back in a timely matter , my fault , not theirs . the blade is a 4 the service not so high . i have ordered blades before and have excellent results. if you buy one i recommend that you inspect it immediately .

Last one I purchased Came out beautiful. Definitely an old combat used Kukri. Under the cosmolene & rust it was stamped in ancient Sanskrit. Sent a photo to a knife maker in Napol who was able to have it translated for me. It now has a beautiful antler handle and is very impressive. Thanks
