Without a doubt, the khukuri is a king among edged weapons! There is no other knife that we are aware of, that can out chop, slice, or stab quite as well as the khukuri.

It is the national knife of the country of Nepal and is the constant companion of Gurkha soldiers who volunteer for service in the British Army, from both Nepal & India. It is also the favored all-purpose knife used by civilians in those countries. The blade is 12 in. long & 1/4 in. thick in the spine. It is forged from high carbon steel, full-tang through the grip, & fitted with a steel butt cap. Grip material is a native hardwood, which can easily be reshaped to the owners requirements.

The notch on the blade is symbolic of the Hindu goddess Shiva, "goddess of might".

The traditional sheath is made from hand carved wood, covered with goat skin, & brass tipped. The suspension system is made of full-thickness goat skin.

The traditional small accessory blades (Karda--sharp utility knife. Chamchak--dull edge for touch -up sharpening of the big blade) are included.

12 in. blade, 16 1/2 in. overall.

I got this as a Christmas present and I'm very pleased. The good things about this are the thickness of the steel and its construction. You get a good quarter inch of decent carbon steel and it's put together very solid. This thing is tough as nails. The bad parts are the fit and finish and it has no edge. Personally, I like the crude fit and finish, but I put that as a negative because most people don't. It looks like it was put together in a primitive workshop. It gives it a very rustic look to me. The small utility knife and sharpening steel are pathetic and useless. The scabbard serves the purpose, but looks like it's old and worn out. It kind of matches the blade. All in all, if you give it an edge it's an extremely durable and somewhat crude looking workhorse.



Great project blade! Reviewed by John Espartero on Mar 13, 2018   4 out of 5

My first impression when unboxing this knife is it's heft, solid thick steel blade of decent hardness and overall finish is quite rough, I reprofile the edge to be a extremely sharp convex edge using a cheap harbor freight belt sander, the result was a hefty knife that chops like a beaver on steroids! The smaller knives that it comes with are for sharpening they may not look much but they are hardened steel strips that are used to maintain the edge like a sharpening steel and worked well enough to restore the edge to paper slicing sharp! The belt strap has to be secured with para cord on the sheath or else it will just feel like a weight strapped to your belt.

The blade weighs in at 24.5 ounces, it was very dull but sharpens up. I used a 1 inch belt sander for sharpening this blade, started with 80 grit, yes 80 and ended with 1000 grit. Holds an edge fairly well the fit and finish leaves a lot to be desired the wood slabs one side being longer than the other by 3/16 of an inch.among other things, The blade also has a considerable twist in it, This will be used for a tool, chopping etc, and it does pretty well quite a bit of heft. What more needs to be said its $20.00 fun to use

Disappointed Reviewed by on Mar 23, 2017   5 out of 5

The Good: Very well constructed. Blade is solid. Handle is of good quality. Full tang. The BAD: The little accessory knives are useless. Little knives don't fit in the scabbard. Even if they DID fit, one could not fit the accessory knives and the main blade all together. Belt loop doesnt fit the scabbard. No edge at all and sharpening it is near impossible without heavy equipment. I expected it to be a little better. Budk has much better items in the price range.

His and Hers Kukri Reviewed by Josh Ervin on Dec 05, 2016   5 out of 5

Just got out knives in today...... We likey..... I kinda think of the little knives as tiny cheese blades maybe. I'll edge them and use mine at work. Hers is going with her to work as well she says. Feels pretty good in the hand. I'll have to put a grind on the tang tho. It sticks out a little from the wood. Otherwise this is what I expected for $20.

Decent deal Reviewed by Howard Farmer on Aug 02, 2016   4 out of 5

Hefty. It'll be nasty when it's sharp. It's taking a lot of work to get an edge without a wheel. Tip of the blade had a small ding but it will get sharpened away. I discarded the 2 small blades. I felt they weren't safe because the handles were too small. You might find them useful... one more star if it had come at least semi-sharpened.
