Gurkha Kukri Description

The Gurkha Kukri knife is a Nepalese blade with an inward curvature with a stag horn pommel.  The knife is similar to a machete and can be used as both a tool and a weapon.  The Gurkha knife remains the basic utility weapon of the Nepalese people.  It is also used by the the Royal Gurkha Rifles of the British Army, Nepalese Army, Assam Rifles, Gorkha regiments of the Indian Army, and of all Gurkha regiments worldwide.  Due to the worldwide regiment use, the weapon acquired the English name “Gurkha blade” or “Gurkha knife”. The Gurkha knife often appears in Nepalese heraldry and is used in many traditional rituals.

Blade Materials

This gladius sword is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel.  Pattern welded Damascus steel is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel.  There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers.  The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.  High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel.  The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords.  The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions.  This makes the perfect steel for swords.  The handle is wood with stag horn pommels.  It comes with a leather sheath.

This was the first knife I ordered from Battling Blades and it is also my favorite out of my whole collection. The blade and handle are free of defects and the Damascus is definitely real. The sheath is high-quality, too. If you're looking for a sturdy yet flashy knife, I totally recommend this one.


Second blade I’ve purchased, all have been gifts. The next one is going to be mine. I was very impressed with what was sent and the recipients have loved them.


I am beyond pleased with craftmanship of this blade. I would highly recommend buying this item, you aren't quite sure.
