This is called standard kukri(Khukuri). Among all the kukri, service No.1 is the most famous all over the world as it is issued to the Gurkha Soldiers. As it is military Kukri, when a Gurkha is recruited, he will receive this kukri as self-guard. Therefore, It is an authentic kukri issued to the Gurkhas and is used in battle or warfare. It is must necessary for all British Gurkha Soldiers, Singapore Police, and the Gurkha reserve unit in Brunei. The blade is made of Highly Graded carbon steel. The blade is 10 inches long while the buffalo horn handle is 5 inches long. The sheath is made of cotton-wood covering out buffalo hide. It weighs about 700 grams.
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 kukri is shipped directly from Nepal.
