This is the re-production of old World War I era Kukri. This Kukri is a very famous among Military Knife collectors because of the facts that this is the very design of this Kukri was carried/used by the Gurkhas in hand-to-hand battle in the Jungle of Burma during world War 1st. This Kukri knife played a very significant role in creating the history of the Gurkhas. We re-constructed the Kukri based on antique Kukri that was used during the WWI and customized the weights, its thickness, handle (eg. lanyard) and sheath to utilize in this modern world.
This Kukri was also great to use for any kind of heavy works. It can be used to chop wood, fire wood, bone, cleaning bushes. The blade is made of Highly Graded Carbon Steel and its semi-polished. It is broad and more curved then Standard Kukris therefore it is perfect while use. The Handle is flat full tang. Unlike other handle (not Rat-tail), the handle and blade is a one single piece and visible all around the handle (See pictures). Two wooden pieces joint (Attached) strongly to the metal part of handle with three metal rivets and adjust lanyard hole on handle. Special white Sheath is made of Genuine Buffalo Leather. the blade is 12" long with 5.5" handle ( Overall 17.5 Inches). It weighs approximately 2.85 lb or 1300 grams.
