The legendary Kukri knife is the weapon and general purpose tool for the very disciplined Gurkha of the Himalayan foothills; so brave, tenacious, and feared an infantry that history accounts some enemy soldiers fled upon their arrival in battle. The Gurkhas remain elite soldiers in the The Royal Gurkha Brigade of the British Army, Indian Army, and Royal Nepalese Army. The large curved blade makes this knife quite effective. The handle is rosewood and brass.
Just a reminder ALL of our Damascus steel knives are hand forged to final shape, then the cutting edge only is ground sharp on an emery wheel. Most of the inexpensive "Damascus" knives on the market today are ground down to shape from a machine-forged billet and are of vastly inferior quality and performance. As with many of the items on our website, all of our knives are completely handmade, and can never be mass produced.
