The Kukri II is much lighter and handier than a typical authentic Gurkha kukri of the same length. Part of the reason is its light, injection-molded Krayton handle. This handle has most of the excellent ergonomics of the better authentic kukri handles but with a more secure grip thanks to its rubbery Krayton construction and its fine-grained pebbled surface.
While this is generally a significant advantage over an original kukri handle in use, the extra friction will raise blisters on your hand if you do extensive chopping using the original Gurkha technique of letting the handle rock front to rear in the hand. I strongly suggest that you wear a glove when doing extensive chopping with this knife. The handle has a lanyard hole, always a good feature on a field knife, particularly when operating over water or snow.
