Welcome to Tora Blades

Welcome to Tora Blades where you will find a fine array of traditionally made Nepalese Kukri. It has been Tora's aim to replicate fully functional traditional Nepalese utility models and old British Gurkha Battalion and Ordnance models, which were designed to suit the needs of a Military man. Due to the ever increasing hassle of dealing with customs and the ever more finicky English Post Office we are now sending the kukri direct from Nepal upon the completion of a pre-order batch.

May 2018 UPDATE

Following the earthquakes in Nepal in April and May 2015, Tora Kukri is back up and running. However, please be aware that lead times in the production of kukri can and will take longer due to transport difficulties following the devastating earthquakes which has made the supply of materials such as wood, horn, leather and coal very difficult. Some of our kukri are made in what was one of the most hard hit areas and most of our kami and manager lost their homes. Many of them are still living in temporary accommodation. Tora along with many of our loyal customers helped to support our kami and manager along with there families during the aftermath and continue to help when you buy a Tora kukri.

GK Kukri

If you have placed an order for a GK Kukri, please note we expect your kukri to be complete between September - November 2018.

KTM Kukri

If you have placed an order for a KTM kukri due in April - May 2018. Please note that this is on track, but delivery times could extend into June. Wooden handle kukri will be completed first due to a shortage of horn which is harder to come by. Horn Handled products are likely to be completed end of May - June based on current information. A new batch of KTM Kukri is available for sale now with an estimated time of completion as August - October 2018.

Warpage

Please see below video which shows that a little warpage is quite normal on both antique and modern kukri.
