Gurkha Kukri Description

The Gurkha Kukri knife is a Nepalese blade with an inward curvature.  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 gurkha kukri knife 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 micarta with steel bolsters.  It comes with a leather sheath.

Gitter done!!!

I had to clean up the factory edge with a wet stone but only took five minutes, i then blazed a trail through the woods chopping down small plants, brush, and trees. On the same edge i chopped down and hewn into smaller portions 20+ foot tall trees for a enclosed deer blind: the blade held up, edge held up...this machete/knife was a GREAT purchase! Only thing that would make better for cutting trails is more length on the blade otherwise perfect! Gitter done!

The blade is beautiful and so far has taken abuse in stride. My boys are still fighting over it. Will order more knives from battlingblades in the future
