Gurkha Khukri is a very unique knife that has an inwardly curved shape with a relatively much heavier weight and thicker one side of the blade allowing it to have an axe like thrust and razor-sharp blade on the other side to provide it a sword-like cut. The origin of the design of the Gurkha Khukri has been said to have influenced by the domestic sickles and the hunting boomerang shaped-bent sticks.
We highly recommend that the wooden parts on all kukri are treated with the appropriate timber oil or wood treatment prior to use to protect and prolong the life of the timber. All of our exquisite Kukri’s are hand-made and as such there will be variations in size, weight, timber color, and other such features that make them unique and distinguishable from machine-made imitations. Buyers must be 18 yrs and over to purchase any knife or sword. Please note that the kukris are shipped directly from Nepal. Once you used it you will automatically want to share with your friend and family.
