The 7'' Jungle Khukuri by Ex-Gurkha Khukuri House has a blade of 5160 high carbon steel. It has been tempered to have a hard edge that will stay keen for longer than a softer steel, and a softer body that will subtly flex with shock to prevent the blade from being too brittle. The edge hardness is 58-60 HRC, the body is 45-46 HRC, and the spine is 22-25 HRC. the blade has been etched with decorative patterning and inlaid brass on both sides.

The bolster and pommel cap are of brass and the grip is of carved rosewood. The scabbard is of fitted pinewood crafted with traditional ‘’Laha’’ glue. It has an outer layer of black leather and and a protective chape of brass. The scabbard has an integrated belt loop of leather and two fitted compartments for the two utility tools. One is that ‘’Karda’’, a small utility knife, and the other is the ‘’Chakmak’’ - a tool used to help sharpen the larger Kukri. The two knives have blades of high carbon steel and carved rosewood handles.

The term Ghurkha comes from the name of the Gorkha Kingdom, which found the British East India company into a standstill in the Gurkha War of 1814-1816. After peace terms were agreed upon, the East India Company began to recruit Ghurkhas into its forces, so impressed were they with the martial skill and courage of their former opponents.

The war cry of the Ghurkas was then and still is ‘’Jaya Mahakali, Ayo Gorkhali!’’ - ‘’Glory to the Great Kali, Gorkhas approach!’’
