Bringing old school combat to today’s battlefields. A combat blade designed for battlefield perfection...

Are you geared enough for the next war?? in war there is NO second chance ..

Designed by YouTube knife reviewer Donnie B All Day, we see a tribute blade to surpass it’s predecessor. The KA-BAR knife was popularized in WWII and through the years, the design has seen very few changes. The design while still beloved, is in need of serious updates. With poor weight distribution, a thin tang and round grip, it is time for a change. This is the next generation combat knife.


war-machine-knife-handleWhat’s so special about the blade?
Forged in 52100 steel, this blade stretches a full 8” in length with 5” of a true full tang. Using steel pins, the scales fit seamlessly to the grip. A minimalist hand double guard will keep from snagging on gear while still protecting the hand from the edge. An oversized fuller helps properly distribute weight and the clip point is fully sharpened making it battle worthy from every angle.


Why use wood scales?
Choosing wood over leather was a no brainer. The contouring offers an honest grip for any hand size. Carving grooves into the scales, besides offering more grip, also provides channels to help expel sweat keeping your hand tightly gripped to your lifeline when the going gets tough.


  • 8” matt 52100 steel blade with clip point in classic profile
  • Sharpened swedge for upper thrust and destruction
  • 5.5” Full Tang Strong and Comfy wooden handle
  • Blackened Double guard for protection and look
  • Deep fuller, Flat grind, Duad edges; ALL for strength, balance and performance
  • Basic brown leather sheath for easy and quick operation and carriage


A battle-hardened classic knife for today...

Very impressive Knife

I just received my next purchase from Kukri House, DBAD War Machine. I am very impressed, nicely made, well balanced, nicely design and made from quality and great looking materials. It feels really good in my hand, just right. I really appreciate great workmanship of Lok Bahadur Lama, it is my pleasure to own such piece of art and quality icon. I am very happy with this purchase. THANK YOU!!!

How the Ka-bar should had been

After buying this I don't need a real ka-bar, I have something that surpasses it in almost every degree from the handle shape, guard, thickness and length of the blade there is no substitute for the DBAD War machine!!!

This has officially replaced my kbar

The kbar knife aside from Karambits is my favorite type of Knife. I’ve put my kbar through alot but overtime started to build a love hate relationship with it. Caught this Knife on sale for $90.00 and with that proce I added the 3 inch helper knife and a neck knife to my order for the price of 1 dbad knife. This knife had perfect weight and balance and will cut through paper like it hates it. Love the hand forged design and work. The small blades are not that sharp but can do the job for small task. Will be getting another knife soon. This knife is a combat survivor utility knife.

Wow What a Knife.

I just got my DBAD War Machine today and what can I say except it's a beast. It's more impressive in person than in the pictures. It will be on my hip when the chaos comes. It's built for fighting. Thankyou master craftsman LOK BAHADUR LAMA (SUBASH) for a job well done. And thanks to the team at KHHI NEPAL for everything. Another order will be coming soon. Alan Ginn Missouri USA.

DBAD War Machine

Much sturdier and heftier version of the K Bar knife. Materials, workmanship and design are all excellent. Durability seems about indestructible. Fit and finish comparable to any custom knife maker anywhere. Handy marine knife for Iwo Jima.
