This Tactical Scimitar from the Ex Gurkha Khukuri House of Nepal has a burly and hard-hitting blade of 5160 high carbon steel. The blade was differentially-tempered to possess a dull-resistant 58-60 HRc, a body of 45-46 HRc and a shock absorbing spine of 22-25 HRc. The sweeping blade delivers powerful slashes and deep cuts to a target and the polished wooden grip gives the bearer plenty of leverage with which to wield the sword. The tang runs for about 3/4 of the length of the handle.
The high quality scabbard is crafted from wood which is bound in leather and completed with a faux leather belt loop so that the sword can be worn vertically; it can also be worn across the shoulder with its adjustable shoulder baldric. Integrated with the scabbard is a pair of buttoned retaining straps to secure the hilt.
