OVERVIEW

These original battle kukris were made prior to 1890. Some were made much earlier, but it’s difficult to determine the exact date. Each kukri was hand made. The steel was smelted, forged, shaped, and hammered in Nepal by individual Kamis. As spears and the Kora sword were being replaced by firearms, the kukri was the weapon of choice for hand-to-hand combat. The BhojPure is popular among Nepalese because it brings good fortune and prosperity, but in the skilled hands of the Gurkha, it became a frightening weapon indeed. These have all seen service with both the Nepali military and the British Army. Read more about kukris...

Very Pleased
I just received my BhojPure Traditional Antique Kukri and was very pleased.  Even though the grip was cracked and had a small chip, the blade itself was phenomenal.  The blade is sharp, well-made, and has no rust.  Given its age, what I received was far better than what I expected.  I definitely recommend "hand select"!

To Hand Select or Not To Hand Select; That is the Question
Over the years I obtained 2 Bhojpure Antique Kukris.  Both are amazing pieces of history for the price.  The first was Hand Selected - and was in great condition given it's age.  The second I thought I'd risk it.  The blade had a crack and the handle was chipped.  It was on sale - so not the end of the world, still worth every penny.  But, definitely choose the Hand Select!

Better Than Expected
I received my BhojPure Kukri today and am thrilled.  It exceeds my best expectations.  So much so that I immediately, after cleaning, ordered the Longleaf Kukri.

Exceeded expectations
This blade came to me in fantastic condition. The handle was solid and the blade still rings like a bell.  I've used this piece on wood and it's held up perfectly. I've polished the fullers and cutting edge and will have a sheath made soon. Using this old battle khukuri has taught me a lot about what traditionalkhukuri can really do. Outstanding.

History in your hand.
Excellent  blade.  Plenty of character .  Gotta use some elbow grease to clean up and sharpen.     It has a small piece broken off handle but that just adds more character and does not affect usefulness.

I paid extra for the hand select.  Knowing that these have been for sale since 2003-2004 I was concerned on what condition the kukri would be in.  I received the item in a timely manner and it was well packaged.  Knowing that this kukri is very old and an antique; yes-there were rust spots on the blade, yes-there was some small pitting on parts of the blade.  No-the blade was not bent; No-the blade was not chipped and neither was the point broken.  I submerged the entire kukri in mineral spirits for about 30 minutes.  I then took bronze and steel brushes, some medium to fine grit emery cloth, steel wool, and bronze scrub pads and cleaned up the blade and the metal part attaching the blade to the handle.  All this took about 4-5 hours.  What it turned out to be is a very nice display piece.  I'm sure if I wanted to use it, this kukri would work perfectly as it sharpened up very well.  All in all I am quite satisfied with this beautiful antique kukri!  Thank you Atlanta Cutlery!
