Any info and advice will be greatly appreciated
Yep it is the cold steel kukri machete. I bought mine from here - http://www.coldsteel-uk.com/store/Kukhri-Machete.html

These some good videos too if you havent seen them - http://www.knifetests.com/ColdSteelK...ctionTest.html

When i got it all it really needed was abit of a sharpening and it was ready to go, i have used it afew times too, battoning ect and its had no problems what-so-ever thuss far.

Thanks for your support too mate, its appreciated........

thought I would keep you updated anyway
Ok tracker, no probs mate..........

(As a side note, if anyone could reccomend any decent rucksacks that would be good, the one i hvae got is allright like, just thinking about getting a new one sometime.)

I just want to add aswell - the "webtex machete" got welded because it broke, thats why there is string around the handle/tang. When i took it apart, the tang was designed poorly and when battoning with it, it cracked and broke at the tang, so i dont reccomend them.
