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 government contract, the ordinance drawing and spec sheet. The Gurkha regimental kukri comes with accessory knives. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
