Decent deal Reviewed by Howard Farmer on Aug 02, 2016   4 out of 5

Hefty. It'll be nasty when it's sharp. It's taking a lot of work to get an edge without a wheel. Tip of the blade had a small ding but it will get sharpened away. I discarded the 2 small blades. I felt they weren't safe because the handles were too small. You might find them useful... one more star if it had come at least semi-sharpened.

I just got my kukri today. I read the reviews, so I knew there would be no blade, so I figured it might be fun sharpening it up and honing it myself. It came oiled up, but there was so much oil that it was soaking thru the box. I was surprised and kinda disappointed when I looked at the sheath. The top of it, where you insert the blade, looked dirty and ragged, like it had been sitting on a floor in a warehouse for a few years. The little knives are extremely sad looking too. They're ugly little things with scrapes and chunks gouged out of them. The redeeming thing about this is that the kukri itself seems good and solid, and I'm betting it's going to be a beautiful, strong knife once I'm done cleaning and sharpening it. Despite its flaws, this kukri should turn out to be a nice blade to add to my collection.

Kukri Knife a hit, with us! Reviewed by on Jul 10, 2016   5 out of 5

The Gurka are known for their skills using the Kukri, though Kukri knives have been found in the tombs of Greek warriors. Modern armies in India, Pakestan, Nepal, and the Ghurka Regiments of Great Britain, amongst others, are armed with the Kukri. The smaller steel implements are the small sharp knife, Karda; and the small steel, left unsharpened, Chakmak, to be used to strike a spark for fire, and to hone the other two knives as a steel. We have two Kukri's ordered at different times, and both had to be belt drawn to a fine steel edge, and then sharpened to a razor edge. Both are our field axe, hatchet, and hunting knife. We did bind the belt loop with paracord to the sheath so the knife handle is vertical on our belts. Our kukri's seem to be evenly hardened at the blade edge to about Rockwell Hardness of 55/60 as is the Karda. The Chakmak is a bit harder. Black paste shoe polish works to harden the goat leather covering the wooden sheath. At less than one third the cost of other Kukri's, these knives work well in the Florida swamps and palmetto scrub!

damaged blade Reviewed by on May 21, 2016   1 out of 5

I received my kukri yesterday and the blade is extremely warped and will not even fit into the sheath. i would not recommend buying this kukri it was a waste of time and money. I would ask for a refund or for budk to ship a new one but I would have to pay shipping and handling, which is ridiculous.

It is low-carbon steel Reviewed by xiangmin sun on Feb 14, 2016   5 out of 5

I brought one,but found the blade was not edged at all,when I tried to edge it by myself,I found it could be easily wear down by a file,that means it's made from low-carbon steel or made from med/high-carbon steel without heat-treat,I think it's low carbon, so even heat-treat will not harden it,how they can made a knife with such material .but the construction of the knife is ok.

Not the greatest Reviewed by Michael Estrada on Jan 13, 2016   3 out of 5

I do love this knife but I was under the impression that it would have been sharpened. The kukri has no edge on it to sharpen so you have to use a grinding wheel on it. I'm honestly not impressed with the knife, it would be better if it had a edge lol

AWESOME Reviewed by on Jan 09, 2016   5 out of 5

This is the second best thing I bought from budk the small knives are useless, (only for symbolism). Overall a great blade it is a quarter of an inch thick! I like the cutout of the gurkha god of might but inaccurate. The ''blood groove'' is actually called a fuller to make the blade lighter and stronger

bang for buck... Reviewed by on Dec 15, 2015   5 out of 5

KHUKURI...pronounced as "khoo-ku-ri" is without a doubt designed to hack! It is a great blade of the Nepalese Gurkhas. Well the authentic ones come all the way from a small some rural village in Nepal and they last for ages.... This on the other hand is close one to the originals... good blade....good value...

Great combat/camp blade Reviewed by on Oct 28, 2015   5 out of 5

I have had mine for about twenty years. With a few minor modifications to suit my hands and personal needs, I found it indispensable for defense and around the camp. I've used it to clear brush and to chop firewood. A totally essential tool.
