Mine just came today. It is all that I expected.
I bought it to use as a camping tool. It replaces a Bowie knife and a machete. I ordered it unsharpened. I have the skills and tools to put an edge on it. Convex edge not so sharp an angle as the concave edge. It came with a satin finish. I will polish it to a high sheen to use as a signal mirror, just in case such a need arises.
Other posters note that it's loose in the sheath. Yep, mine too. It's a wooden sheath, covered in leather. Very well made. Just don't hang upside down and the knife won't fall out.
The two little knives will probably just stay home in a drawer. I imagine that originally one was a patch knife for use with a black powder musket.
All in all, I feel I got a great deal.
PLUS, I got my additional paperwork. When I ordered my knife, in the box for "customer requests" I simply asked to include the paperwork. It showed up as a $0.00 item on my order.
I am very pleased with my kukri. I just so excited when I hold it in my hands.
Really beautifully made. Cannot vouch for how durable the blade would be under extensive use, as this was not the purpose of my purchase, but it looks fantastic and the quality seem s top notch, especially for the price.
Solid handle, semi-sharpened edge (as described). Very loose fitting sheath, with plenty of rattles and no retention upside-down. Belt loop is nice thick leather - very solid.
Kadra & Chakmak are pitifully thin & flimsy.
Product is fine ,BUT papers described to come with the item have not been received. These papers are so important to a knife collector. If we don't get them very soon , I will return the knife. Other buyers have complained about this omission, too.
What a piece of work! Fit and finish excellent! Exceeded my expectations! Service was great.
My husband is very happy with the knife. We still have not received the paperwork we were supposed to receive with the knife. I will call again and request it.
Excellent value,as said in another review order it sharpened and learn to keep it that way.This will be a great field knife.Hope to get a couple of the antique ones for my collection,need to check reviews on those.For the price on this knife though you cant go wrong
Five stars for what it is.. a simply made basic field knife. Ive purchased several from A C, including a ww2-issue stamped with the British broad-arrow mark and "M44". When I got my first years ago, we thought they were a HUGE knife, long and heavy. Fact is compared to other field knives Ive purchased since, these khuks are sorta light weight and certainly not over "long".
All of them have provided excellent service in the field and campsite. At the price, if it is lost, you havent lost a lot of money... These khuks are worth the money, worth even making my own sheaths for a couple of them.
Order it sharpened and learn to keep it sharp. Personally I sharpen the wider belly of the blade with a thinner edge for slashing, and use a wider "V"- more like an ax-edge- on the lower section of the blade.
The advice by Robert S, below, is right on.
This knife meets my expectations. There is a learning curve involved if you buy a kukri. The shealth is a little bit loose but there is a solution to that. I would recommend that you purchase this knife sharpened by Atlanta cutlery. If you want to learn how to sharpen one correctly yourself then do what I did. I bought this because I wanted to learn what owning a kukri is all about. So, that means learning how to take care of it,how to maintain it, and how to sharpen it. It's made out of good steel and its good quality workmanship. I enjoy it very much. Thank you, Atlanta cutlery.
Well made addition to knife collection.
blade is scratched on both sides near wooden handle.appears to be a very sturdy product.
Nice knife. I paid to have it sharpened. Glad I did as the inside curve isn't to be sharpened. It has nice balance and with limited movement of my wrist, results of a previous accident, it has a nice cutting path that doesn't require a lot of movement. Only issue is with the belt loop on the sheath. It is way to big, but with a few screws to adjust the opening size for the belt being used, it works fine.
A sturdy knife for a reasonable price. The Kukri reamains an excellent choice for multiple scenarios.
The Genuine Gurkha Regimental Kukri fully meets my expectations. It was made in India and professionally sharpened. I am fully satisfied with the quality.
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.
