OVERVIEW

This kukri comes with a new scabbard made of wood and covered in leather. May include 2 small kukri knives that mount in the auxillary pouch on the back of the scabbard (while supplies last).

Also available with no scabbard or original scabbard and 2 knives.

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 is 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. This longleaf kukri was made for war. It has a straighter spine and longer blade than bhojpure, and 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. All of the blades are marked in Devangari script with the date of manufacture.

We can hand select the best one for an additional fee.

  • Approx. 19" long, 2-1/2" wide, 3/8"thick

Great collector piece.
Great kukri - this came in good condition, but a bit dirty.  There was no active rust, but there was corrosion from years of storage and two significant dents in the edge.  I spent about an hour working on it with a rust eraser and a whetstone and got it back to almost original condition, though the dents would need much more work to take out.  Mine had a wooden handle which is very solid and in fairly decent shape.  In hand it feels authoritative and "choppy" in a good way.  If you haven't handled a historic kukri before then they're very interesting and very utilitarian.

To be honest, it wouldn't be my first choice for outdoor usage, but it would definitely work in a pinch.  As a collector piece... it's really, really good.  This is a vintage or antique blade, and when you think about it, the dents in my blade just indicate that it saw use during the day.  More likely than not, someone trusted this blade with their life when they took it with them on an expedition.

I only gave this kukri a 4 because of the rust on the small knives, and discoloration on the kukri blade. There was also some minor chips on the handle. The grips on all three knives was tight. It is a hand select and is worth the extra $10.00. all in all I was very happy and plan to buy others.
