Description of the Product
Since 1943 these Kukris have been made by one government contractor; Windlass Steelcrafts. This piece is original, official military issue! Hand forged from high carbon steel. A must for outdoor activities that require chopping and cutting, from gardening to camping.
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. Takes a good, sharp edge. Scale tang. The contoured handle is made of authentic buffalo horn. Brass knob and reinforcement. Genuine military issue to the officers in the Gurkha Regiments in India.
