Product Information

Please note - you are placing a pre-order for this kukri.  Estimated completion time is August/September 2017, but this is subject to change.

Tora's WW Battalion and Regimental Issue kukri is based on the WW1 2/10th and 1/6th Gurkha Battalion issued variants.  In WW1 the 2/10th GR were forced into making kukri for themselves, and this is the style of kukri they opted for, a true Gurkhas kukri!!  Seeing action with the various battalions in places like the Battle of Aubers and Neuve Chapelle in France in 1915, and in Gallipoli at the Battle of Gully Ravine and Sari Bair in WW1 and many other places. The style was so popular that it carried through to WW2, seeing action in North Africa, Europe and Burma. 

The Tora Battalion kukri generally has a 34cm long blade with a belly of 6cm and weight range of approximately 540 - 615 grams. It has a stick tang wooden handle and comes with a military scabbard and frogs and Chakmak & Karda utility knives.

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 specification as per the original models.

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 etc may well occur. You must be 18 yrs and over to purchase any knife or sword.

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

Outstanding

The WW Battalion is an impressive piece of craftsmanship, and a solid chopper. The scabbard is fantastic, as well.

The Battalion and Regimental Issue kukri

I have owned several Tora Battalion/Regimental Issue kukri and when I have used them I have been pleasantly surprised at the forward balance and their chopping abilities. Mine have been about 630 grams (22 oz) in weight. This blade is great for serious woodwork at camp or an all round chopper.
