Genuine Gurkha Regimental Kukri
Click to Review
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. The Gurkha regimental kukri comes with accessory knives. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

This is the real deal, a great survival, camping and chopping knife, Windlass has been making it for over 70 years for British and Indian Governments. Better to pay extra for sharpening, they know how to do it professionally.

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.
