dedicated to the 12,000 Gurkha warriors; Modern Kukri knife for the new generation Gurkha soldiers
When it came time to design a modern kukri, I first dove into the past. All the way back to 1814. It was then that the British army tried to conquer Nepal by sending a fighting force of 30,000 soldiers. They were met by 12,000 Gurkha warriors. A confident British Army assumed that they would easily sweep through the Nepalese fighters. They were wrong. The British were so impressed with the Gurkhas warriors fighting skills that they began recruiting them into the army.
What’s so special about the blade?
Beginning with 11” of 8mm thick 5160 steel, we are able to produce a menacing blade that reaches 2.5” at it’s widest point. Using complex grinds, forming a tracker style blade, we finish it off with heavy gimping, a comfortable finger well and a two tone look combining polished steel with a natural black.
Why use micarta?
KHHI uses a high performnce shop made micarta. By using in house made scales, we are able to keep the price down with the value high. Absorbing sweat, the grip stays naturally well in the hand all the time, every time.
What is the grip?
The full tang grip stretches the 11” blade to to an impressive full length of just under 17”. With comfort made contouring and perfectly placed finger wells, the grip offers three hand holds that each serve a purpose making this the most well rounded kukri blade on the market.
Comes with a black Kydex sheath in default.
