The Service No.1 Remade Khukuri pairs the classic design of the military Service No. 1 Kukri with a wider, larger tang and a riveted grip construction. It has a differentially hardened blade of 5160 high carbon steel (Edge; 58-60, Blade Body; 45-46 HRC, Spine; 22-25 HRC). This differential heat-treatment creates a blade with a hard edge that will not dull too easily and a thick, but softer spine that will absorb shock and prevent the blade from being too brittle.

The bolster and pommel cap are of steel and the grip is crafted from two halves of polished buffalo horn riveted to the thick tang. The scabbard is made in the traditional manner of pinewood and Nepalese ‘’Laha’’ tree gum glue. It is overlaid with black leather and fitted with a steel chape and integrated leather belt loops. It has two compartments for the ‘’karda’’ and ‘’chakmak’’ - an additional utility knife and sharpening tool. These two small knives are made from high carbon steel and polished buffalo horn grips.


Although made famous by the British and Indian Gurkha soldiers, the Kukri knife is a rather ubiquitous knife in Nepal - it can be seen not only in the hands of its soldiers, but also among the Police, craftsmen and farmers. The Kukri can even be found in the kitchen. It is a symbol of Nepal itself.
