This traditional Camp Khukuri crafted by Ex Ghurka Khukuri House is a practical-minded Khukuri in a rural Nepalese style. It has a blade of 5160 high carbon steel that has been left largely unpolished to make it resistant to rust. It has been differentially hardened when tempered to create a blade that can better maintain a sharp, hard edge and can resist breakage by having a softer, shock-absorbing body. The edge has a hardness of 58-60 HRC, the body has a hardness of 45-46 HRC, and the spine has a hardness of 22-25 HRC. The blade has been etched on both sides along the spine.

The grip is of carved rosewood. It has a bolster and a small pommel cap of brass. The companion scabbard is traditionally crafted from carved pinewood and ‘’Laha’’ tree gum glue. It has been overlaid with a layer of reddened water buffalo leather. The scabbard has an integrated belt loop and two back compartments for the traditional small ‘’Karda’’ cutting knife and the ‘’Chakmak’’ Kukri sharpening tool. These have blades of high carbon steel and grips of carved rosewood.


The people of Nepal, particularly in rural areas, will use Kukris like this for clearing brush in the manner of a machete. The Khukuri is not just a fighting blade, but a working blade. Though this has all the form and function necessary to make it an excellent fighting blade as any other Kukri, well able to fiercely chop as befits the Kukri.

In rural Nepal, a boy, upon reaching manhood will be given a Kukri and upon his death it will be buried with him, as it is believed that the Khukuri left behind will vanquish the demons and sins of the deceased.
