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.

AUGUST 2020 UPDATE - Delays due to COVID-19 Pandemic

Following the earthquakes in Nepal in April and May 2015, Tora Kukri is fully 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 continues to make 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 while homes are rebuilt. Tora along with many of our loyal customers helped to support our kami and manager along with their families during the aftermath and continue to help when you buy a Tora kukri.

KTM Kukri

90% of orders with estimated delivery of November 2019 have been despatched. The final 10% of these orders will be despatched by end of June, this is due to delays caused by the Corana Virus Pandemic. They should have been sent end of March but this was not possible due to Lockdown Restrictions which started 27th March in Nepal.

If you placed an order with an estimated to complete date of Mid-March to End of April 20 - please note that these are due to start shipping from June due to the previous batches running behind and due to the delays caused by the Nepalese Lockdown in response to Covid 19, as our Smiths were not permitted to work during this time. Please note, we will be fulfilling all orders in date order, so orders placed earlier will be despatched first. Batches will be broken down in to 5-6 groups. If your kukri is in group 1 of a batch it will be sent earlier than an order that is group 5 of the same batch and this purely based on the date your order is placed.

If your order is in the the July/August 20 batch, there are likely to be delays but we expect these kukri to start shipping end of Sept/Oct 20.

If you have placed an order in the batch for estimated delivery in August & September 2020, please be aware that this is also likely to be delayed, we will post more info here once we have it and once the previous batches above are complete.

Due to demand, we have also released a new batch of pre-orders for sale with an estimated delivery date of between December 20 to February 21. Approx 50% of these are already sold. As with the August & September 2020 batch above, we will post updates here in due course, once we have more information available. We will try our hardest to fulfil orders within the estimated time frame, but with Covid-19 and the rapidly changing lockdown restrictions occuring worldwide, please understand that this may be difficult.

We do not have the ability to contact all customers individually about status of your order, so please check back regularly here or our Facebook page for updates. Please rest assured we are working to catch up with all orders as soon as we can, but ask for your continued patience. If you have any queries regarding the status of your order, please feel free to contact us by email to sales@torablades.com

We hope you enjoy our store, and the many high quality and authentic kukri we have to offer, and if you have any queries regarding any of our products, please do not hesitate to contact us.
