    I had one of the Windlass blades, which are about on par with Deepeeka, maybe a little better. Expect "character" marks from forging and grinding- they definitely look handmade, but they should be serviceable.

    Appreciate the info. I don’t need pretty, functionality is key

    I know you didn’t ask me but I ordered mine I sharpened. Figured someone here could use the money instead to sharpen them. Mine arrived today.....very happy with the purchase. Same knives Alice used in Resident Evil: Extinction

    Order them sharpened. You can do the technical sharpening when you get it.

    So glad you sent this. I have been going to the site for days. My wife and I were watching Forged in Fire the other night, and I had to pause it to tell her about these. She said, “You better buy me one too!” Then, this weekend, while watching Resident Evil, we pulled up the website and started looking at all of the knives. There is some pretty cool stuff on there.

    I was just happy they went back to shipping. A few days ago, they said they were not going to ship anything for a while and open orders could be cancelled.

    The Kukuri blade design is one of my favorite. I had a decorative one an uncle brought me from India when he was in the Air Force. Pretty much did bookshelf duty. Then a friend turned me onto the old Cold Steel ones. Amazing what you can cut through with just a snap of the wrist with a sharp one. I keep one on my tractor, one on the 4 wheeler and one just laying around in the basement to use as needed.

    I ordered the 3451R (the last one linked) last night, I would have preferred to have it sharpened, but I’ve got a vice & a file to get an edge profile started And I’ll finish it off with stones.

    Has anyone gotten theirs in yet? Mine is supposed to be delivered tomorrow and I’m stoked! I am hoping that it will be an actual user that holds up to good hard use, I have a couple of machetes that are much larger than the 12” I ordered so it should fit my needs perfectly if it’s a user!

    Got my four. Knives were their usual good quality but the sheathes absolutely suck this time. Almost destroyed three sheaths getting the knives out. Sent them a nasty-gram. The knives are still worth the money though.

    Kult of Athena will be closing until further notice as we comply with the mandatory Shelter in Place order issued by the Illinois Governor. We will not be taking new orders until we reopen. We do not know precisely when we will be allowed to reopen but we hope it is soon. We were trying to continue operating with a reduced staff, but that has proven not to be possible.
    **Customers with existing orders: All existing orders will be filled, and we hope to have all in stock orders shipped by the end of the week or early next.
    We will be checking emails during this time, so if you need to get hold of us please email orders@kultofathena.com. We hope everyone is staying as safe as they can out there and we very much hope to be open again soon.



    If you didn't get one already, you're going to have to wait a while.

    I had a cold steel kukri, and I thought it was pretty handy, but comparing it side by side with my Ontario machete, I felt like the machete cut brush and limbs a lot better.

    You might like the machete but you'll never look as cool as these little badass bastards coming at you with a couple pounds of sharp steel. :D:D:D

    If anyone bites on these, I'll sharpen up the first 5 or so that someone asks of me for free. I do slack belt convexing to a razor edge.

    Also: Good, cheap, fast... I qualify for the first two.
