This hefty beast is the king of edged weapons! This knife is the national symbol and constant companion of the great Gurkha warriors who fought many battles with this iconic weapon leading the way. The cutout is a religious symbol associated with the Gurkha Goddess of Might. This classic kukri features a hand forged 12" high carbon steel blade, which is a stout 1/4" thick. The handle is carved from rugged hardwood. Two traditional fixed blade knives are also included, each measuring 4" overall. One of these knives, the “Karda,” is a small utility knife used for fine cutting tasks; the other, “Chakmak,” is traditionally used for sharpening both the main blade and utility blade. A high quality leather sheath houses it all.

Took it to the knife sharpener when I first got it. Good knife so far I really don't see this good built knife ever breaking. Budk is out of stock on this knife, if they weren't Ida ordered 3 more! Great product
My husband loves it.Its very sturdy.
Okay, this is not a Katana, this is a Khukri, a blade that is strong enough to cut a car in half. It doesn’t come sharp and I almost ruined my clothes because the sheath bled everywhere, but none of that matters because if given the proper sharpening, via grinder wheel you will have a powerful, and beautifully simplistic weapon. This blade is similar to those on a lawn mower, due to its thickness and size. I don’t see mine breaking, ever. It’s a full tang blade, and comes completely blunt. I just got around to getting it sharpened and it is gonna be a fun knife to test. From splitting logs, to splitting cars this should do the cheap trick.
used this knife for some batoning to make kindling , the pommel fell off on the first hit . once i looked it over i could see the tang was not peened over at all . the knife has been in my truck for months and this was the first time i used it , so the 60 day return has passed and im left with a broken knife.
The example I received was dull to the point of having about 1/16 inch wide edge. The blade was also badly warped and the handle was off center and there was a gap between the scales and the tang. Not even worth trying to work on and fix.
... Kukri. Because of the low cost I buy one every so often. I polish it and do a bit of mild custom work on them. I then will give it as a gift. Get one ...
The Kukri knife is fine. the 2 additional knives are poorly made and low quality.
Always wanted to buy kukri but did not want to spend a lot when chances are you do not know what you are going to get. I have done a ton of research and have concluded that even with the top kukri makers/distributors there is a luck of draw the possibility. No matter what they tell you, quality control is nowhere in par to factories in our side of the world. That being said a $20.00 dollar investment seemed reasonable knowing fairly well the quality and condition of what I was going to get. Overall, kukri came dull (no surprise) but in great shape. Sheath surprisingly fit tightly and kukri would not drop when held upside down even when forced. I immediately began putting an edge on this bad boy and removing that uncomfortable middle of the grip raised area with Dremell, files and sand paper. I completely re-contoured the grip to fit my hand perfectly. The sheath as I read in other reviews seemed to bleed paint when held with wet hands however, I applied several coats liquid shoe polish and problem solved. I will be adding some waterproofing spray/liquid eventually but sheath seems fine. For $20.00 dollars, even $30.00 you cannot go wrong if….if…, you are willing to put some effort, maybe a couple of hours of additional work to complete and build a great kukri.
Received my Kukri fast, 3 business days after placing my order. About 30 minutes work with a file and whetstone put a nice sharp working edge on my new Kukri which made short work on some seasoned 2" red oak. This was my first BUDK purchase and I am pleasantly surprised with the entire experience, quality of the knife versus cost, and intend to try out some more products from this company.
I bought this kukri about over 2 years ago. I was amazed by the overall size and thickness of the blade. I also appreciate the inclusion of the Karda and Chakmak, as they are very important to the origins of the kukri. My only complaint is that it didn't come with a sharpened blade, same with the Karda. It also would've been nice make the blade out of stainless steel rather than high carbon steel because it would be less prone to rust I believe(not an expert on knives by the way), as mine began to rust a few weeks after I used it on a jug of water and cleaned it off but the that could be my fault. But to sum it up, this is definitely worth the price of $20.
Out of every knife, machete, sword in my collection of I had to take just one.... Had mine for over a decade. Holds a razor edge, took mine to a knife shop and paid to have a shaving edge out on. Chops, sliced carves, even digs all day and comes back to shaving fast.
Can be thrown, could probably be batoned but mine probably won't be. Sheath needs paracord, glue and electrical tape.
Have passed on many purchases as this one is a beast if you sharpen it and take care of the sheath. Unless you have to buck logs for a sub zero fire or otherwise NEED a full size axe, this will do. Makes a dandy but heavy scout machete, cleaver for butchering of quartering game.
Able to use like a drawknife, and craft carving.
May get the combat commander kukri, then again.... Not deprived as we sit.
The blades need to be sharpened. It is unfinished. Only one of the small knives should be sharp, the other is for maintaining the edge of the big blade. This khukri is basic but very solid, heavy and as big as khukri's should be. I just bought my second Bud-K kukri, they are that solid and good. If you use chopper knives, this is the one, once sharpened. You won't need another more costly kukri. This will do it.
A good workman-like blade. A simple piece of steel forged into shape.. probably a re-purposed car or truck spring. These blades ARE tempered and are hardest along the belly of the blade. They do take a good edge but it may take some time to do that. Lots of filing or working carefully on a grinder- remember NOT to overheat the blade- I use a coffee can of water by the grinder to keep it from overheating and pulling the temper. Once Ive set the edge, I use a 1-inch belt sander to refine it.. and then touch it up with a file. Lastly I use a fine grit stone to finish the edge, and they DO take a fine edge. I also keep a small stone around when using it in the field. A buddy uses a dianond "stick" honer to keep his touched up.
No need to fear USING/abusing this blade- chop, slice, dig... it can take it- and in the hands of someone who knows kukhris, it will take off a head if it came to that. Looks cheap, but remember these are the same knives used by the peasant farmers in their fields- for everything.
I have several khuks- a couple edged for general camp use, and two sharpened and set up for specifically killing, (God forbid!) These knives are great for camp use once you've set up the edge angle and sharpen it. If you havent the time or inclinations, take it to a professional sharpener. I sharpen the belly and forward sharp, thin for slashing and slicing, and behind the belly the edge angle is more like an axe edge for chopping and splitting wood. But that Me, YMMV. Buy, and enjoy learning the Kukhri! These are a good place to start.
This Kukri from BudK and the one with brass more brass are both good, this one is great. It comes with no edge and whomever had scrawled what looks like L D A on the left side of the blade near the handle. Tang is full, great chopper, threw mine once and stuck it before I put an edge on it. Never again!
This thing holds a razor edge, literally will shave hair after taking down some saplings. It splits kindling, and my Cold Steel Trailmaster rarely gets to see the woods anymore. IT's that good.
The one with more brass is a fine blade, better sheath IMHO.
This one is worth having professionally edged ( cost me 12 bucks.. my wizard is kind ) and re-enforcing the frog with some paracord, other wise sheath didn't carry well for me. I purchased mine from Amazon, from now on I'll get them here.
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.
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
do not buy this kukri if you do its ok for decoration blade has no edge steel is not tempered it is totally useless
Very well constructed.
Blade is solid.
Handle is of good quality.
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.
My wife got me this Khukri for christmas and absolutely love it, its a solid piece
