I don't have a magnum kukri but in a way it reminds me of the BWS 6 just thinner and not as long of handle unmodded.

T

The war machete and smatchet with the wide blades when thinned in grind work very well. A modded war machete lives on the tractor and wheel barrow . A modded smatchet will out chop ontario kukri, sp52, sp53. The 1055 modded war machete and smatchet haven't blown out on black locust like a condor big machete did.

Lots of cold steel machetes come with guards too.

1055 and trams etc can take some abuse. Sometimes it seems condor heat treat in 1075 is hit or miss often soft near the tips.... Spring temper 1055 and trams are practically unbreakable.

Trams rivets might eventuallly come loose. Cold steel poly on the smatchet for example will not. One tram I h ave has fiberfix on it for a handle right now still haven't tried it much with some work that needs to be done I will be trying it out.

Not sure..........but I think you may have voided the warranty on a few of those Scott Wink Undecided Smiley

lol. That BWS 6 in 1095 has a very good heat treat it's not made anymore so I doubt there is any warranty. The SP5, SP10, took some abuse too and did fine.

That mtech 151 did too, if you look you can see where I took a round file to the tang transition.
