I'm not sure which does more damage. I have not seen the latest DnD 4th Edition stats on those weapons yet.
Here's some 3.x ed stats though:
Kukri 1d4 slash, x3 crit
machette 1d6 (as short sword but since it is a tool and not a weapon it is improvised so -4 to the attack), x2 crit
axe 1d8 (as battle axe, but again a tool so -4 attack due to it being an improvised weapon), x3 crit
black jack viking raider ... isn't that an NPC?
Doesn't anyone here answer a question seriously before you digress into irrelevance?

i never meant to imply that it was a real khukri, but it still is a good chopper and the weight is balanced towards the front, just not as much as a real khukri. but that can be a good thing as he said he was considering a machete to begin with.The khukri (various spellings are acceptable) is widely popular; I have several cheap ones and am not a huge fan. I'm sure if I had a good one, I'd like it. Note that the Colt Steel "Khukri Machete" is NOT a khukri, it's a machete that happens to be shaped like a khukri. Not that it's a bad machete, necessarily, but it doesn't have the heft, weight, and tip-heavy balance of a real khukri.

If I had to pick the machette does more for less weight, but the two together can build a nice camp shelter and all in a surprisingly short time.
