GI3 (Gurkha Issue 3rd)

 Enlarge

KHHI pays its tribute and reproduces this original war kukri for kukri fanatics..

An exclusive and excellent product by KHHI that is a true legend that carved the history by its decisive swing. It is with the power and employ of this kukri that the Gurkhas earned a fearsome and respectful reputation as the most formidable soldiers on Earth.

GI3 is one of the many standard issue kukris of the Gurkhas in post WW1 and particularly in WW2. The name GI3 is given so because of KHHI’s deep research on Military Kukris point to the fact that this knife probably falls in the 3rd number of the numbers of kukris issued to Gurkhas. Officially starting and counting from 1857 after the Great Indian Mutiny where the Gurkhas earned high respect and recognition from their British counterparts, it is our belief that GI3 is arguably the 3rd numbered official standard issue to the Gurkhas by the British authority.

The GI3 was in good production and already issued to the soldiers by 1915, and this continued until at least 1944 thus making it as the largest military kukri ever produced or used by the Gurkhas; as the strength of soldiers were significantly increased, sometimes 5000 heads per enlistment, for imminent war objectives and threats. The kukri was initially manufactured by many local companies and individuals in India like the DHW, RGB, E Boota & Sons and later, pre and during WW2, well known companies like ATD (Army Traders Dahradun), MIL, Pioneer Calcutta, Queera Bros and others produced the kukri in massive scale to keep up with the demands. (Please be notified that all these name of companies have been taken from the engravings or stampings found in the original GI3s). Most GI3s would have stampings like the name of the manufacturer or inspector, manufacturing or inspection date, company/regiment initials etc and an arrow mark pointing up to symbolize official or authorized issue.

The unpolished blade is 13 inch long with deep belly and broad main body, curved shaped with almost flat shoulder (Peak). It has a typical khukuri shape from the history however handle is significantly modified from its ancient siblings. A distinctive handle where the tang is flat, goes all the way through the handle and fixed with two rivets on both sides. The wooden handle also curves downward as it finishes towards the butt cap. Steel fixtures are used to enhance the fitting process. The handle and its fixtures are polished unlike the blade (unpolished). GI3 has a regular leather case with a protective steel chape. The interior wooden box is flat and wrapped by black colored water buffalo hide. The leather frog has twin belt loops at the back for the belt to go through and a fasten-up leather string to tie the two ends of the frog.

Can be used for just about anything as a cutting knife and a utility tool but since the knife carries so much history and honor KHHI highly recommends this master piece for collection or decoration as a remarkable and a commemorative historic symbol.
