2. Wooden scabbard covered in Regimental Tartan cloth (Heritage Knives is first to offer Regimental Tartan cloth covered Scabbards for Khukuri knives)

 

Karda and Chakmak is not included as the original did not have it. If its a must have requirement please do mention it when ordering and add 25 usd for a matching set that can be used as small knifes. 

 

 

This Kukri is based on Lt. Montagu´s Kukri from 1940 when he joined the 8th Gurkha Rifles on the North West Frontier of British India, the old Raj days. More on the history of Kukri knives can be found below.

Given time FACTS will triumph over Myths. 

The world of Kukri knives can be very confusing, from people stuck on self promoting to various retailers selling the story over a good Kukri, filled with myths and much more in the name of genuine, gurkha ties, birth, hand made, Nepali made.


At Heritage Knives we focus on facts and genuine research and have here two short articles based on the longerwork titled "The 20th Century British Military Gurkha Issue Kukri..." by Mr. J.Sedwell/Spiral, which forms a strong base of what we currently know as a community.

Right: Other Official Kukri Knives & conclusion.

Reproducing Kukris based on time proven antiques requires skills beyond black smithing and thus knowledge is power as we go into battle vs ignorance and myths.
