Gurkha Kukri Knife-Handmade High Carbon Damascus Steel- 13"

Introduction to the Gurkha Kukri Knife: The Gurkha Kukri, a traditional Nepalese knife, stands out with its distinct inward curvature, reminiscent of a machete. This iconic knife transcends its role as merely a tool; it embodies a versatile weapon and a symbol of Nepalese heritage. The Kukri is not only integral to the daily lives of the Nepalese people but also serves as the foundational weapon for elite military units globally, including the Royal Gurkha Rifles of the British Army, the Nepalese Army, Assam Rifles, and various Gorkha regiments in the Indian Army. Recognized universally across Gurkha regiments, this blade is affectionately known as the "Gurkha blade" or "Gurkha knife." Beyond its military prowess, the Kukri holds a place of honor in Nepalese heraldry and is integral to numerous traditional ceremonies.

Exquisite Blade Craftsmanship: This magnificent blade is crafted from pattern-welded Damascus steel, renowned for its durability and artistic appeal. The Damascus steel is a fusion of hard, heat-treated, folded carbon steel, comprising 11 meticulously folded steel pieces, culminating in 352 layers. The steel strikes an ideal balance between hardness and resilience, boasting a Rockwell hardness rating of 55 to 56 HRC. The core of this formidable blade is 1095 steel – the highest grade of carbon steel used in sword making, ensuring unmatched edge retention and structural integrity. This intricate layering process results in a blade that possesses both the sharpness to maintain a robust edge and the flexibility to withstand substantial impact, epitomizing the ideal sword material.

Refined Handle and Sheath Design: The handle of the Gurkha Kukri is as elegant as it is functional, crafted from bone and adorned with a silver pommel and brass guard, offering both comfort and style. Accompanying this exquisite knife is a premium leather sheath, providing both protection and ease of carry.

Awesome custom blade

I didn't know the blade had to be made when I ordered it. It took time but the wait was worth it. The blade has a nice weight and the craftsmanship is amazing. I will definitely purchase from Battling Blades again.
