Our Gurkha Kukri Knife holds a proud history from Nepal, featuring an iconic inward curvature akin to a machete, designed for practicality and protection. This multi-functional knife is not only the basic utility weapon of the Nepalese people but also a distinguished tool carried by globally recognized military regiments.

Employed by the Royal Gurkha Rifles of the British Army, the Nepalese Army, Assam Rifles, Gorkha regiments of the Indian Army, and Gurkha regiments globally, it’s earned its reputable name as the “Gurkha Blade” or “Gurkha Knife.” Beyond its practical use, the Gurkha knife features prominently in Nepalese heraldry and is a significant part of traditional rituals.

Superior Blade Material

Our Gurkha Kukri Knife is skillfully crafted from pattern-welded Damascus steel - a heat-treated, folded carbon steel known for its unmatched hardness and durability. By folding 11 pieces of steel five times, we create 352 intricate layers, achieving a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.

The blade's composition of high carbon Damascus steel includes layers of 1095 steel - the highest content carbon steel utilized in sword-making. This unique layering process creates a blade that retains a sharp edge and demonstrates incredible strength and flexibility to endure high-impact situations. A wooden handle with stag horn pommels ensures a firm grip, and a protective leather sheath accompanies the knife.

The Gurkha Kukri is a beautiful weapon, well worth the price.

Couch Ninja

Second blade purchased from this seller. This bladesmith makes very good quality swords and knives. I am happy with the Gurkha-Kukri I received. It has a very sturdy grip, and the Damascus steel pattern is striking. Edge was fairly sharp, and sheath was functional and well put together.

Joseph Reynolds

The one downside I see with this is the craftsmanship involved in this, it is so beautiful I want to hang it on the wall rather than use it. I'm clearing a area overgrown with all kinds of horrible things growing( I cannot get my tractor in here) and so far I have had no trouble with vines and trees upward of 3 inches thick. Very happy with this tool!!
