Since 1943 these Kukris have been made by one government contractor; Windlass Steelcrafts®. The original, official military issue! Hand forged from high carbon steel, each comes with regulation sheath. A must for outdoor activities that require chopping and cutting.

Used with devastating effectiveness by the famous Nepalese Gurkhas in the Siege of Delhi in 1857, in the trenches of WWI France, throughout the New Guinea jungle in WWII, and with distinction in the Falkland Islands. The blade is an impressive 1/4" thick with deep grooves and the traditional religious notch. Takes a good, sharp edge. Scale tang. Traditional, native hardwood handle. Standard metal butt plate. Genuine military issue to Gurkha Regiments in India. The only Kukri on the market that comes with a copy of the 8-page government contract, the ordinance drawing and spec sheet.

got it with a factory edge I have all the tools to sharpen them, it will shave now after a round with an axe file and a diamond steel. they failed to provide the spec sheet as it lists in the included tid bits, not a real issue just a lack of final inspection before they closed up the box. the sheath is amazing leather work, its a definite plus if they had provided all the stuff listed it would be 5 of 5 but ya gotta call em like you get them out of the packing don't ya?

Fantastic knife. I ordered it unsharpened, but a file and ceramic stones have brought up a very nice edge.

This is a fine Kukri especially for the price. I did not pay extra to have it sharpened, I wish I had. It came somewhat sharpened, but not along the entire edge. The last 3/4" of tip still was flat & un-sharpened, and about 1/32" wide. I used a file then a diamond hone and finally ceramic sticks and now it is sharp. Wood to metal fit is excellent. The scabbard is VERY nice and well made.

Well made and a lot of knife for the price charged (I ordered the factory edge). Sheath and accessory knives are done nicely also. Appears to be military issue in that it comes packed in a cosmoline type preservative wrapped in plastic. It was better than I had expected.

Have had one of these for twenty years now, no work of art but gets the job done, get it sharpened because it's hard to find someone who can do it right

I have owned mine for a year now, I do survival expeditions on my own and use it for a survival knife. I use the two smaller ones for around camp and totally love it.

An almost perfect chopping blade... once it's sharpened correctly. Atlanta Cutlery's Sharpening Service is top-notch, and well worth the $$. (Note how the first bevel is parallel to the edge, to the height of the notch. Not easy to do at home, for most folks.)

This Kukri is the finest survival tool you will ever own! I bought mine 20 years ago from Brigade Quartermasters. When I, topo camp off trail, in the Green Mountains or the Adirondacks, my compass and this Kukri is all I need. I love this knife so much I bought 5 more from Atlanta Cutlery just for my collection!

I purchaced my kukri for work and it is a real choping machine, the only negative is the handle is torture on the hands! I guess Gurkhas have funny shaped little hands? I re-did all the handles on all my Kukris to fit my 6' 200+lb frame.

I use my kukri constantly as a tool and for reenactment and there is absolutely nothing I can complain about.
