Description of the Product

Since 1943 these Kukris have been made by one government contractor; Windlass Steelcrafts. The original, official military issue! Hand forged from high carbon steel. A must for outdoor activities that require chopping and cutting, from gardening to camping.

These kukris were used with devastating effectiveness by the famous Nepalese Gurkhas in the Siege of Delhi in 1857, in the trenches of WWI France, throughout the New Guinea jungle in WWII, and with distinction in the Falkland Islands. Kukri is a formidable weapon but also excellent all-round tool used traditionally in northern India and Nepal. This excellent traditional tool used for example in construction work has since spread all over the world and is nowadays used as likely by a trekker as in a combat unit. As a chopper and cutter a kukri is similar to large bowie knives and small hand hatchets. It is more powerfull that regular-sized knives but is more easily transported and carried than a large axe.

The blade is an impressive 6.3mm thick with deep grooves and the traditional religious notch. Takes a good, sharp edge. Scale tang. Traditional, native hardwood handle. Standard metal butt plate. Genuine military issue to Gurkha Regiments in India. This Gurkha regimental kukri comes with two accessory knives. The wooden scabbard wrapped in leather has a belt loop to hang your knife from your belt or rucksack.
