For those customers that want to purchase the two smaller blades that come with traditional khukuri. These are called Kard for small knife and Chak Mak for the honing steel. This is a Leaf Spring Steel with Horn handle. Be advised these are larger than typical and may not fit your sheath . If you order 1, you will receive the set (both Karda and Chak Mak).
Free shipping inside the USA. Overseas should contact me before ordering as the system will overcharge you on shipping.

I could not be more satisfied with these two blades. Excellent quality.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A SET OF “KARDA” & “CHAK-MAK” IN YOUR KIT=BAG OR THEY WERE NOT INCLUDED WITH YOUR KHUKURI, THIS IS THE BEST AVAILABLE ANYWHERE !!!!! THEY ARE MADE FROM THE SAME #5160 AS THE “BIG BLADES” EXCEPT HAVE A DIFFERENT HEAT TREAT FOR THE TASKS THEY ARE UTILIZED FOR. THE CHAKMAK WILL MAINTAIN THE CUTTING EDGE ON ANY “WESTERN/AMERICAN/MILITARY DESIGN. BTW: THE CHAKMAK MAKES AN AWESOME “SPARK THROWER” WHEN STARTING A FIRE USING OLD-SCHOOL METHODOLOGY—–OORAH, SEMPER-FI & KEEP EVERY SHOT INSIDE THE 10-RING !!!! FOREVER

These are great accessories. Well-made, well finished and fit my hand well. I have tried the chakmak on two knives and it sure seems to help keep an edge on them. I have not yet tried the karda. It is sharp. I will try making it sharper. I bought these to accompany my 1874 made kukri. These accessories are a very good value. I recommend them as functional knife and sharpening steel.

OOPS, I FORGOT TO SAY SOMETHING IN MY RECENT REVIEW OF THE “KNIVES BY HAND” CHAKMAK & KARDA, SO HERE GOES….THE “CHAKMAK” IS USED TO MAINTAIN THE CUTTING EDGE & FOR THROWING SPARKS TO MAKE A FIRE. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO SHARPEN THE BLADE, BUT SIMPLY FOR “HONING”—YES THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE CUTLERY TERMS !!! THE “KARDA” IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A VERY SMALL BLADE FOR SKINNING SMALL ANIMALS, CUTTING FOOD INTO SMALL BITES @ THE DINNER TABLE, CLEANING UNDER THE FINGERNAILS, ETC. THE KARDA HAS A VERY SHARP CUTTING EDGE & THE CHAKMAK HAS 4 VERY DULL EDGES & IS MADE FROM THE SAME PIECE OF SPRING STEEL WHICH THE BIG BLADE IS HAND FORGED FROM. HOWEVER, THE CHAKMAK HAS A MUCH HARDER “ROCKWELL SCALE” THAN THE BIG BLADE FOR USE AS A HONING TOOL. BOTTOM LINE: THESE ACCESSORY BLADES ARE MADE TO THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF QUALITY, THE SAME AS THE BIG BLADES ARE. I HAVE BEEN DOING BUSINESS WITH FRANK GONZALES SINCE 2014 & PROMISE YOU HE IS HONORABLE, ETHICAL, DEPENDABLE, PATRIOTIC, & IS MAN WHO BACKS UP WHAT HE PROMISES TO DO FOR HIS CUSTOMERS ——OORAH & SEMPER FI !!!!!
