I'm thinking of carrying both. One on my tactical vest hung upside down and a katana strapped over my back. Of course I'll be carrying my AR as well.
I tried buying an authentic Kurki for my collection.In the field, instructors always carried Kukri knives, they have a wonderful all purpose blade that can be used for anything from chopping wood upto about 4" thick to skinning and fine carving depending on what part of the blade you used. It is an excellent edition to any collection and at 14-16" it fist well in the "Kinves you can use for self-defense" lineup as well.
Same here as I carry a 10" bowie in the field plus 2 skinning knives and field saw as well as at least a side arm and rifle. Now home I have machete, axes and swords as well as a number of other knives and guns to choose from.I always have a sheath knife in the field and usually always have access to a machete (on my pack or in the truck). This of course assumes an "in the field situation". At home I have both plus some.
