The 6’’ Blade Gurkha Afghanistan Campaign Khukuri has a 5160 high carbon steel blade; the blade was tempered to have a very hard, dull-resistant edge of 58-60 HRC, a mid-section of 45-46 HRC and a softer, shock resistant spine of 22-25 HRC. The guard is of steel and the thick tang is surmounted by two rosewood halves robustly riveted to the tang for a grip. The tang is allowed to flare past the grip to allow for a hole-punched lanyard plate.

This Kukri comes with the traditional pair of utility knives; the ‘’Karda’’ cutting knife and the ‘’Chakmak’’ Khukuri sharpening tool.

The Khukuri and its accessory knives fit within a sheath crafted from pinewood assembled with traditional ‘’Laha’’ glue and finished with a protective outer layer of water buffalo leather. It has an integrated belt loop of hardened water buffalo leather.

This Khukuri is one of the current issue blades used by Gurkhas whilst serving in Afghanistan. They can opt for this smaller Kukri or the larger version of this fighting knife.
