- BBIntroducing from Neem out of Nepal, Reproduction of the WWII Pioneer Calcutta Khukuri Fighting Knife. The original was manufactured by East India Company Pioneer in Calcutta in 1942, 1943 and 1944. This is based on my original antique khukuri. SHEATH IS NOW BROWN . NEW PICTURES TO BE TAKEN.
Like the original, the Leather Sheath is based on my personal antique khukuri and this sheath is made by Nikki Marshall out of Colorado, USA..
This full tang khukuri model would have been used by Gurkha soldiers in Second World War. This model blade is rich in history and every collector should have one. Note the pins in the handles are patterned after the original style that was done for WW II. I recommend any of the MARK series of knives .
The knife weight varies slightly (+/- a couple of grams) as these are hand forged. This is a good knife for General Purpose camp use and can be used for self defense. Price includes shipping inside the USA.
This Khukuri is my favorite out of the five I own. It holds a sharp edge and is well engineered. Despite its smaller handle, it somehow fits my XL hands just fine. It will grab and cut the thinnest vines and will chop thick branches with no bad vibration back into my wrist. I’ve split oak and maple 4-5” logs with one to two strokes. With a flick of my wrist it penetrates deep to work as a decent pickaroon to stack my firewood. One of my favorite tools and it’s pretty too!
