A serious piece and pound-for-pound the Kukri is the best cutting blade in the Indo-Persian arsenal. A beautiful fighting Kukri from mid 19th Century. This piece is elegant and superbly balanced. Can be used from Khulla Yudhan onwards in Sanatan Shastar Vidiya™.

Possesses a very strong spine and 2 grooves running on the back of the blade near the hilt. Minor pitting on the blade but it is razor sharp without any damage. Has been used for demonstrations in the past within the Baba Darbara Singh Akhara™. It has a spike form of kauri (cutout on the blade near the hilt) - representing Shiva. The grip is beautiful aged hardwood, with a raised ridge for grip. Unlike later counterparts, this has been designed and built with good balance in mind. It places dexterity over clumsy chopping actions. A brutal weapon.

The scabbard is of black leather, slightly worn. However the buyer may get a custom scabbard made if desired. Please contact us on to request a quote.

Note to customers: We are aiming to re-educate our customers who are seeking high quality fighting weapons. High end fighting swords are rarely embellished with gold / silver; they are designed to be highly functional and practical. It takes a Sanatan Shastar Vidiya practitioner to understand what qualifies as a top class, good, average, or bad weapon.

Customers outside the UK interested in purchasing our weapons are kindly requested to contact us directly to discuss available options and requirements.
