Product Information

Please note - you are placing a pre-order for this kukri.  Estimated completion time is April/May 2018, but this is subject to change.

Tora's WW Battalion Issue kukri is a replica of a WW1 1/6th Gurkha Battalion issued kukri which was probably picked up by a British Soldier in the Gallipoli campaign in WW1.  The kukri it is based on belonged to Gurkha 843 Gurung of B Company. This style of kukri was used in both World Wars and the kukri we have based the Tora model on may well have been present at the famour battle of Sari Bair in 1915.

The Tora WW1 1/6 Battalion kukri generally has a 33cm long blade with a belly of approx 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. 

For an easy way to sharpen your kukri please use this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vplOsEUgwIg

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.
