The Kukri blade, with its markedly downward curved blade, has long been identified with the Gurkha Warriors of Nepal, the ferocious mercenaries who have wielded this blade for over 150 years in the service of the British Empire.

The Cold Steel Gurkha Kukri was inspired by Cold Steel President, Lynn C. Thompson’s close association with Dr. Maung Gyi, chief instructor of the American Bando Association, and a renowned martial artist with wide-ranging knowledge and skills. Under Dr. Gyi’s tutelage, Lynn gained insight into the full potential of the Kukri and learned it was not just a chopping weapon but a piercing, slashing, and smashing weapon as well. Smashing techniques allow the Kukri to function as a hammer or mallet or to deliver non-lethal blows in a self-defense role. A concentrated blow with the back of the blade can break bones or be lethal if directed at the head.

With Dr. Gyi’s input, Thompson designed a longer, narrower point for the Gurkha Kukri with more distal tapering to the spine. This resulted in a thinner, sharper point which can be deeply driven into thick, tough targets with minimal effort.

Finally, a masterfully designed Kray-Ex handle was added to maximize the blade’s fierce potential. Perfectly contoured and deeply checkered, it offers a superb non-slip grip and cushions the hand from the shock of the hardest blow.

The Gurkha Kukri Plus’ CPM-3V tool steel blade will out-chop any factory or handmade knives; including swords twice its size, even expensive, hand-forged Japanese Katanas. It’s the heaviest Kukri on the market. The blade is almost an inch wider near the tip than at the handle, shifting the knife’s balance point forward to allow a substantial blow to be struck with minimal effort, using inertia alone to complete the cut.

Each Gurkha Kukri is supplied with a Secure-Ex sheath to protect the blade and allow you to wear it safely and securely on your side always ready to defend you and your loved ones.

Still my favorite combat blade of all time with or without the guard.

Awesome! I love it! This tool demands much respect! I chopped through some 2x4s, 4x4s and some smaller size dry branches/logs with less effort than I anticipated! Not expecting this to perform like a full size ax but wow!

Ordered this on 5/23 and received on 5/27. Very sharp right out of the box. A very solid knife feels great in your hand. The sheath is also excellent. The Email order confirmation showed the shipping cost as $7.99. Knowing that it was coming from the west coast to east coast I thought this was a little odd. When I looked at the final invoice the shipping was actually $16.99. I am not concerned as that is usually what it costs to go clear across the country in that time frame. Overall I am very happy with this purchase especially the short wait time.

If you have got the money and want the best this is it. Weight, balance, sharpness, ease of sharpening, sheath, finish this is it just costs is all, Cuts like sword, Nepal kukris cut but the extra weight slows them down. When you watch Cold Steels cutting videos remember some of these guys are real big and throw their whole body into it, the best out there.

There is something special about this knife. Have only had it for a month or so. but it has become a part of my life, even when it is sitting in its sheath, away from me in its place of storage. I think it is the san mai aspect, that gives it its heart. To the Love that gives us our best blades!
