Survival knives come in many shapes and sizes these days. But history has selected a handful of designs that stand the test of time. One of them is the khukri (koo-kree), a knife that got its start in Nepal. Its familiar curve almost resembles a metal boomerang, and it’ll want to push out of your hand just like one. The curve moves the weight forward and down. As generations of workers, soldiers and regular folks can attest, the khukri is perfect for chopping and slashing.
Fast forward to today. The TOPS CUMA Tak-Ri 2.0, designed by Waysun Johnny Tsai, updates the khukri as a modern tactical and survival knife. This video reviews why it’s a good choice for your collection of survival knives.
