Description

Introducing an Old Style Khukuri in conjuction with Knives By Hand  : The Mark 4 is one of the rarest British official khukuri pattern model.  It was originally designed in 1949 / 1950 by the Wilkinson Sword Company.  It seems the British Army wanted to purhase British made khukuri despite the higher cost. The profile is nearly identical to the Mk3 and is obviously based on the MK3.  The Mark 4 was mainly issued for use in Malaya and Borneo 

One of the major differences is the enlarged fuller in the blade.  This khukuri will also have the distinctive enlarged pins in the handle and steel pommel as was on the original.  This knife is made such that it’s balance point is on the edge of the blade to distinguish it from other copies.  The tip of the scabbard is reinforced with a thicker brass tip.  Crossed khukuri is added to the scabbard in honor of the Gurkha.  It is a real world working model and comes with the side knives that are more curved than is normal as was the original Mark 4 : The small knife(karda) and honing steel (chak mak).
