    Default Nepal Gurka Kukri

    What's the general opinion out there regarding the Nepal Gurka Kukri? How much benefit will the shape of the blade have in combat?

    Lastly, will this blade serve as a good back-up home defence weapon?

    Preferred suppliers???

    Hi Lone Ranger

    IMO that blade could cause some serious damage. I have a (made in Nepal) kukri that is mainly a display piece and it is kept on my bedside table at night in case... very heavy, thick blade and the shape affords a better chopping angle!

    I would definately take this to a knife fight!!

    the fighting style with a kukri is more on the lines of a short sword rather than a large knife. so keep that in mind when carrying or using one.

    I ordered mine from Nepal. www.nepalesekhukuri.com
    Mini Jungle Khukuri, 8" blade with 4" handle.
    Local suppliers charge double. Learn how to use it.
    Nice dismembering tool.

    ritual aside, learn how to use it. they have a very heavy blade with a forward balance point. great for chopping, and "disarm" takes on a literal meaning...

    the downside is that the weight and forward balance makes recovery a little bit slower than a lighter or more balanced blade.
