WW II Pre Khukuri:
It’s my re-production of a World War II Kukri is based on the Kukri carried by Gurkhas in hand-to-hand combat in the Jungle of Burma during the 2nd World War. This Khukuri was also originated in Nepal but later Indian Gurkha Army applied it. The blade is heavier and more curved then the current Kukri issued to Gurkhas. In the wartime, the sight of this formidable Khukuri in the hands of the Gurkha soldiers was enough to bring the enemy at their wit's ends. This Kukri is a very famous knife among tourists and collectors because of the fact that it was actually used by Gurkha soldiers during world wars time. This Kukri played a very significant role in creating the history of Gurkhas. This Kukri is also great to use for any kind of heavy or light duty. The water poured temper on the blade makes it very strong. The blade is made of highly graded carbon steel (mostly used in truck or bus suspension leaf). The overall length of the blade is 17inches long while the blade is 12inches long and the rest of part is handle 5inches long.
* Scabbard : Cotton Covered in buffalo leather. The scabbard has ekpane(one loop) frogs which are leather loops used to attach to the belt.
* Karda & Chakmak : There is only Karda available for this kukri as it would be work two in one system. Karda is small knife used of skinning animal hairs and no needed extra Chakmak for this kukri as Karda would be worked as chakmak for sharpening the Kukri blade in its blunt.
*Material Used: Highly Graded Carbon Steel (car & jeep, truck suspense leaf spring, 5160) for blade. Water Buffalo lather for Scabbard (outside), indian rose wood for the handle, Pinewood for Scabbard (inside), White Metal and “Laha” (Traditional Nepalese glue which works for joining).
Since, all my stuff are hand-made, variances in size, weight wood color etc may well occur.
