Gladiator (Lethal) kukri knife for the life's arena.. Better impact and Greater power

Raw power within, brutal force, lethal blow, deadly consequence, fearsome look are some of the synonymous characters this 12 inch long bladed “Gladiator” holds like that of the true gladiators of the ancient Rome. One of the latest additions of KHHI, it has been unleashed to satisfy the harshest critics and to please the toughest users. Its RAW (straight from charcoal oven) bevel gives the perfect hardened edge needed to soften the hardest opponents, where as its full flat hexagon shaped SIX riveted handle gives the strongest grip needed to endure the abusive usage. Gladiator though reflects an ancient idiom is actually a modern day Kukri Knife forged to slaughter, slay, slash and destroy whatever may come on its way.


Features of handforged Gladiator Kukri; a lethal knife (weapon)


  • 12” long raw bevel (edge) blade for extreme use (cutting) as temper is maintained (preserved) throughout the making process
  • Full unpolished upper panel for rough and tough use, strength and durability
  • Peak-less spine for easier drawing in and out
  • 12 inch bladed for more and superior coverage
  • Traditional notch is replaced by a nozzle to give a modern look which also works as a blood dripper
  • Little bit more on the heavier side for better impact and greater power


  • 6 x rivets to deliver the strongest and most secure handle
  • Full Flat tang with epoxy for the strongest possible fixture
  • Overall handle made in a hexagon shape to give better grip and look (a break from typical look)
  • Finger-gripper contours and curves to provide the best possible and comfortable holding (grip)
  • Unpolished handle provides sturdy and secure clench
  • Steel fixtures (bolster and butt cap) to secure (lock) the wooden handle firmly in between


  • Black tough leather scabbard for typical and raw look
  • Brown frog with attached loop (belt holder) to hold the khukuri closely and compactly to the body even in motion
  • Brown leather thong to wrap around thigh to prevent wobbling in motion

Getting back after 2 years

Hello Saroj,

After almost two years of heavy use and even some abuse of the muk and especially the gladiator -which keeps on amazing me- I came back to your site for a fieldknife. The detailed finish and multifunctionallity of the viper is really seducing, so I have a question: is the viper coming to the EU-depot any time soon? If not I will be ordering anyway, but as it seems perfect as it is it would be nice to keep the cost down...

I add a photo or two of the gladiator. After two years of very heavy use in not always the best conditions this work of art has more than proven its worth. This workhorse will be a lifetime companion. Difficult to express all the gratitude I already have felt in so many different situations for having this king of knives around. I might even have a second one some day with some slight adaptations.

Hope to hear from you soon.

All the best,
Roel Vinckens

arrived scary-sharp

Hello Saroj,
Hello all of you at KHHI. Both blades arrived today.

Firstly, let me get rid of two minor issues:

The MUK didn't come with the scabbard that is pictured on your site.The loop to attach the knife safely, even in an upside down position, is missing. This might become a problem in my line of work. And the engraving on the Gladiator is placed on the inside of the blade instead of the outside. Maybe I'm to blame if my communication wasn't clear enough. 

These things out of the way I must say that I am impressed with the quality of the blades! The Gladiator is a real work of art! And it arrived scary-sharp... I can't wait to put it to use! Please pass my sincere congratulations to Tilak. I hope to see this master at work one day.

Many thanks also to young Kiran. The MUK is very well done! It could have arrived at bit sharper, but that gives me a good reason to start fine tuning my convex sharpening techniques...

Both blades will be used at work, on survival and around the house. They will be seen, and surely admired, by military, alpinists, outdoor lovers and passerby's. The interested will be informed about KHHI with nothing but prase, not only upon the blades, but also prase upon your communication and customer care. I for my part will be a lifelong customer at KHHI!

I will leave it at that for the moment. 
I'll be back in a not so distant future for one of your Chukuri styled knives. Or maybe I'll do some of my own designing.

Until then all the best to all of you,
Roel Vinckens, Belgium

Dear Swarna
I have just taken delivery of the Gladiator khukuri from your company. I am so delighted to be the owner of such a fine piece of Nepalese craft. The workmanship and attention to detail is fantastic, and I would be extremely grateful if you could extend my thanks to master craftsman Santosh for his magnificent creation.
My whole experience with your company has rekindled my enthusiasm to travel to your fine country once again. If I cannot manage it this summer, then I shall be sure to come next summer.
I look forward so much to meeting you and making more purchases of your fine products.
Thanking you again for such a beautiful creation.

Your sincerely,
