Gurkha Army Combat/Battle Kukri (Loyal)

British Gurkha Loyal/functional Combat/Battle kukri knife, unpolished version

Do or DieThis is so called because of its use as a combat or a fighting kukri knife by British Gurkha soldiers (Gurkhas) at present days. It is a modern day combat kukri preferred by soldiers for battles and warfare. Gurkha soldiers other than the standard issue kukris can have their own pick for their secondary kukri knife. Most prefer to have this kukri because of its perfect size, shape, weight, and style (the simplicity it embraces). All fixtures of the kukri knife are plain and basic yet it retains the solid hardcore look of a classic and deadly weapon designated to destroy and defend. "Gurkha Combat" kukri knife is simple yet style of its own, effective and efficient and very handy and hardy. This kukri carries all the required characters needed for a typical combat (battle) knife that is carried within the enemy territories. 

A fearsome weapon when you run out of your ammunitions – a Gurkha’s first choice when his duty calls upon him to serve and protect.

This Gurkha Combat kukri knife is longer and more curved than the Standard Service Kukri (BSI) issued to the Gurkhas military units. It is quite the same as the "World War" Kukri except an inch longer, and both the blade and handle are fully unpolished. Here the unpolished version is opted to make the kukri blend with the jungle ambient. It also helps to camouflage with the gears and wears of a soldier as anything fancy would attract unwanted attention. The unpolished horn handle also gives better grip and blends with the uniform of the carrier perfectly.


army-combat-kukriGurkha Combat (Loyal) has a traditional plain leather scabbard with single belt loop affixed in it. Two traditional accompanying knives are discarded. This in a view that today’s contemporary warfare has become sophisticated and demanding so carrying them would prove unnecessary (useless).

This Gurkha military kukri is a typical all-purpose utility knife especially made for rough use. Although the blade has no finishing (polishing) the surface is very smooth and well balanced (level). Even the handle is unpolished to benefit the user with better grip and easiness in handling. It is also a replica of old kukris that was widely used by farmers and villagers for their daily domestic work and even used by soldiers during the world war years. This type of kukri is highly recommended for jungle, trekking, safari tours, and any activities that require cutting.


Size of Blade: 12 inches approx.  [note >> the 12" version is only available from 10th April 2020 onwards]
Overall length: 17.5 inches approx.
Materials / Features: Water buffalo leather scabbard, unpolished water buffalo horn handle, 5160 high carbon steel

Beautiful Workmanship

This is the first time I've purchased from the Khukuri House and I am not disappointed. The whole process has gone very smoothly and they have kept me informed all through the process. It was bought as a gift for my brother's 60th birthday and I am highly impressed by the quality and balance of the knife. I wondered whether the blade would be too long but it is absolutely perfect. Please convey my gratitude to Mr Biswakarma, his skill is appreciated across the world!

Always impressed.

Hello to everyone at KHHI, once again. This is my third khukuri from you and I love every one of them. I ordered a 15in blade on this knife mainly because I had that option, then I worried that it might be too big and out of proportion. I needn't have worried, it's a beautiful elegant khukuri and I hope you will tell Mr Rakchhu Dev Biswakarma from me how much I appreciate his amazing skill, also the person or people who make the scabbards. Finally, once more I want to compliment everyone on how efficiently you run your business. Great service, thank you. Regards, C. Perham Western Australia.

First, thank you for the generous inclusion of a complimentary 6 inch Jungle kukri !  It is very much appreciated. Last week I received the order for the two Traditional Combat No 1 kukris, plus the McCurdy and the Combat Extraordinaire custom kukri. 

I gave the two Combat No 1 kukris to my son and daughter last night. They were VERY happy with the gifts.  We had a long talk about the history of Gurkhas and the British description of Gurkhas as “bravest of the brave, and most generous of the generous” and how my son and daughter should work to have that type of reputation during their careers in the military. They were very impressed with the quality of the kukris and the legends behind them. 

Thanks again. And I look forward to the 3 chirra kukris.
