The workhorse of the Gurkas during WWII, this model saw service in both Europe and Pacific theaters. Our number three best seller, this is probably the best combination of weapon and tool that can be had. This khukuri is the favorite of many Bando practitioners. If you try it you will quickly fall in love with it. This 18 inch model is 3/8+ inch thick and will weigh in at about 2 pounds give or take a little depending on the kami who make it. Sometimes horn handle, sometimes wood. Great knife.
