The western world came to know the kukri or khukuri weapon after the British East India Company came into conflict with the Gorkha kingdom, a confederation of 24 states in the Indian subcontinent. All soldiers in the Gurkha army were armed with two kukri. Also in the First and Second World Wars, the kukri was a widely used weapon in allied and hostile forces. In modern Nepal the kukri is still often used as a handy tool, and in many different armies the kukri is also worn as a ceremonial weapon. The kukri is mainly used for chopping and slashing and has a curved blade.

This kukri is made of carbon steel and comes with a beautiful traditional brown leather scabbard, which has loops to hang it on a belt. The kukri has a wooden grip with brass fittings.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result.
