Tora's 2022 updated version of the Camping Kukri is based on a WW2 1/6 GR Kukri (as used in the Burma campaign and carried by a 1/6th Gurkha Officer) but has a slightly longer blade (32cm) and a bit more of a belly.

It has a stick tang wooden handle with a diamond keeper. Weight range is 500-575g. The kukri comes with military scabbard and larger 10 cm karda utility knife the same type as the Forces Kukri.  (No Chakmak supplied with this model).

About the WW2 1/6th: At Kabwet in Burma a battalion of the 6th Gurkhas were involved in in hand-to-hand fighting, which involved repelling a Banzai charge with kukri and bayonet. One of the three Japanese Officers leading the charge with his Officers sword, was killed by Naik Balbahadur Gurung with his kukri.

Tora kukri are traditional handmade kukri, made in Nepal, and not the usual export and tourist kukri found on many other websites. Tora strives to make kukri to the traditional specifications as per the original models.

For an easy way to sharpen your kukri please watch this video.

We strongly recommend that the wooden parts on all kukri are treated with the appropriate oil and wood treatment prior to use.

Please note that because all of our kukri are hand-made, variances in size, weight, wood colour, chakmak & karda style etc may well occur. You must be 18 yrs and over to purchase any knife or sword.

Please note that the kukri are now sent directly from Nepal.
