Gurkha Kukri Description

The Gurkha kukri, a distinct Nepalese knife featuring an inward curve, is akin to a machete, serving both as a versatile tool and formidable weapon. Integral to the daily lives of the Nepalese people, the kukri is also wielded by the British Army's Royal Gurkha Rifles, the Nepalese Army, Assam Rifles, Indian Army's Gorkha regiments, and Gurkha regiments globally. Its extensive use in these regiments has earned it the English moniker "Gurkha blade" or "Gurkha knife." The kukri holds a prominent place in Nepalese heraldry and is an essential element in various traditional rituals.

Blade Materials

This Gurkha knife is crafted from pattern-welded Damascus steel, a robust, heat-treated, folded carbon steel. Comprised of 11 steel pieces folded five times, it boasts 352 layers, achieving an ideal balance of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC. The high carbon Damascus steel incorporates layers of 1095 steel, the highest carbon content steel used in sword-making. This fusion of steel layers results in a sword that can maintain a sharp edge while demonstrating the strength and flexibility required to endure powerful impacts. The handle features stag horn and brass bolsters, and the knife is accompanied by a leather sheath.
