Tora's Gurkha BSI is quite simply what the Gurkhas (in our humble opinion!) should be issued with in the British Army (Tora are not looking to supply the Gurkhas). 

We had this originally made as a sample to show the Gurkha Major in charge of Kukri procurement what Tora believe is the type of Kukri the Gurkhas should be issued with. As a result we've decided that it's just too good to not have it in the range! I would like to thank Major Jonathan Titley for his support on this matter, correspondence with the Major included a break down of the different types of Kukri used by the Gurkhas, and advantages and disadvantages of each handle type and why the Mk4 was a failure (contrary to popular belief there never was a Mk5). 

It has a 32.5cm blade, horn handle with brass fittings and a weight guidance of 475-550g.

Potentially the model that the Major in charge of procurement is going to purchase has a measly 25.8 cm long blade weighing over 600 grams, with a full tang handle, which had sharp edges protruding from the tang above the wooden slabs which would make the hands very sore, if not cut them.  Please see video's here and here. Tora's believes an ideal type of Service No.2 would be something like the Tora Camping 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. Check the comparison Photos.

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

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.
