It was over 200 years ago when the Western world first heard of the kukri. Even today, it remains a solid choice of blade to own and use. This Khukuri with Brown Scabbard is made to armed force specifications to ensure its rugged effectiveness. This fine blade is crafted in carbon steel with a full length tang and the iconic trident-shaped notch near the base of the blade. The classic forward-swept curve makes it a deadly cutting weapon. The grip is made from wood with brass furnishings, and it comes complete with a matched brown leather scabbard with attached belt loops. It is a weapon fit for a war god, and that makes this Khukuri with Brown Scabbard a solid choice for any knife-master or blade-seeker to own and wield.
The Khukuri originated in Nepal, and was largely unknown as a knife until around the Gurkha War of 1814-1816, when the East India Trading Company came into conflict with the growing Gurkha Empire. The two knives included with the Khukuri are designed for two very specific purposes. The karda is a small, sharpened knife and utility blade, while the chakmak is an unsharpened knife that is used as a honing edge for sharpening the Khukuri.
