    New, unused Kukri made in Nepal by KHHI. Includes papers of authenticity and kydex sheath made by RKBA.
    This is not a Kukri Machete. This has a heavy duty 10" blade, hand made from 5160 spring steel, with a single Chirra. Full tang with Western style black Micarta Grips. International shipping and Customs on these are expensive. Plus it takes 1-2 months to have them made.

    $125

    Price is firm, not interested in any trades.
    FTF in the Vancouver area preferred, no shipping.

    Thanks! 20150326_201044.jpg 20150326_202239.jpg

    So is this intended for fighting? I had thought a kukuri was a type of jungle machete.

    Only asking because I'm looking for one to have when I'm out in the woods.

    Like solv3nt said, "you don't have to fight with it". You could, it would work. From what I've gathered 12-13 inches is considered to be "fighting" size. I'd imagine it would take a special skill set, too?

    A Kukri is a very heavy duty blade, native to Nepal. They use it for everything. The Gurkhas are also known for it.
    A Kukri Machete or KLO (Kukri Like Object) is just a funny shaped machete.

    I originally got it for use in the woods. I told them what I intended it for and this was what they recommended. It was custom made to be packable and all around useful. It'll chop, spilt, carve, butcher, and in a pinch be a formidable weapon.

    I kind of hate to have to sell it. But I aquired a few too many toys, before my health got rocky again.

    Depends I guess.

    I just sold some bulk target stuff for 10¢ a round and it was sold and the thread closed in 29 min.

    I have some mini mags, stingers and high velocity stuff also.

    True. I have a handmade one from Himalayan Imports. My thoughts have always been you may hurt me but I know for a fact I can whack you at least once with this thing and I ain't going to be pretty. :D

    Not so much cut an attackers arm. More like chop it off.

    Wow, that's a nice one! With the proper skills, you can do anything with a kukri that you can do with an axe basically, these things are great. Just like the karambit, originally for agriculture/utility, but turned into a fantastic weapon ;)
