Master Kukri index. As I first began to work with the Kukri, I began to write about it.  Have written so much about the Kukri, and my opinions and favorites have changed so much, this "master" index is needed.

 

You seem to have recommended two Kukris, which one do you mean? readers question

Important, Read this Warning !

After buying three kukris at a flea market, and ordering four more, from three different Internet sources, I have found this to be the best source, with the best quality Kukri.  This source recommendation updates any other about the Kukri, on my site.  Paul

The Kukris listed on this page are recommended after buying, and handling, several models.  This supplier is recommended because of having dealt with them.  I get no money for this, and the intent is to make  your  buying a Kukri easier, and better.  You can profit from my efforts, and learn by my mistakes.  No charge, no thanks needed.  Paul.

My Base Files about the Kukri

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some other Kukris, from another page

When I got a kukri like the one at the top of the page, above, my first thought was that it was the model that most people would like, and use the most. 

If you want a Kukri like the FIRST ones I bought, the active link is below.

#AH-3456 Khukri Regimental
Wooden grip, brass fittings, small knives not included. 13" Blade, Overall 16.5"


Price:  $29.00 (Excluding: FL Sales Tax at 6%)




 
 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

There is even one Kukri, also on

 

http://www.by-the-sword.com/acatalog/Standard_Knives_Page_2.html

 

That  LOOKS  LIKE the first one I recommend, above, but without the papers.  Unfortunately, they do not give blade length and weight, so I can not compare.  You might want to check this out, and save seven dollars.

 

#KW-H57 Khukri
The Khukri, legendary close combat weapon of the Gurkha regiments, is to this day standard military issue. This version, produced to Indian armed forces specifications, retains the traditional accessory knives and the blade notch symbolizing the trident of Shiva, the war god. In addition to its collector appeal, the high carbon steel full-tang blade, exotic hardwood handle and steel butt plate make this rugged piece an ideal tool for the outdoorsman.

Price:  $23.00
(Excluding: FL Sales Tax at 6%)

Note that this is the one I recommend now, my latest recommendation, in 2005.

As I first began to work with the Kukri, I began to write about it.

Have written so much about the Kukri, and my opinions and favorites have changed so much, this "master" index is needed.  By no means complete, hope it leads to some clarity.

The day I came to the LORD, before I knew what a vision was, I saw myself walking through a devastated United States of America.  You need to accept Jesus as LORD and make what preparations He would have you make.  This site has basic only, survival information, hence the name Survival Primer, or beginning teaching book.  Most of the information has been gleaned from the internet.  The entire site, Survival and Christian, is saved to a single CD disk  that you can own.   The Christian teaching is from my church, and is original to it.  God has changed my life through the ministry of my church. God will change yours, through Jesus Christ, if you let Him.  My prayer is that God lead you into all truth, and that the abiding love that is expressed through His Son, Jesus Christ, come to rule and abide and infill your life, perfectly. Paul.
