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 Goorkha Army kukri is based on the classic broad shaped kukri used by both the Nepalese Army and the British Goorkhas from the 1830's right through to the early 1900's. 

The Tora Goorkha Army Kukri (GAK) generally has a xx cm long blade with a belly of xx cm and it has a rough weight guideline of  xx grams. It has a stick tang horn 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 the kukri are now sent directly from Nepal.

What a beauty.

My Tora Goorkha Army Kukri arrived today. It has the thick leather for the frog, as Mr. Hengle wrote about. It is really beautiful. The proportions are harmonic and gentle, despite the fact that this is a large blade. No rust on the blade, but covered in petroleum (judging by the smell of it). I have previously bought a fake kukri, like you can find them all over the internets, second hand and for cheap. And it is large too, has more weight to it and is clumsy. This Tora GAK however, is reasonable light, not front-heavy at all and feels like an extension of mine. I think you can't praise a tool and a weapon more than this. I think it is safe to say that these 1kg-Kukris you can buy, are useless, because one can't handle them properly and they tire you out or damage your wrist due to their weight. So again, if you buy a kukri, buy a light one, like Tora Kukris. Because you can actually only use a light kukri. I think of this kukri as something that was made just for me. Thank you Mister Kami. :)

Beautifull light kukri!

you wouldn't know it by looking at it, but when u pick it up in your hands, its surprisingly lighter than u expect! the profile is just absolutely gorgeous, nice sharp and deadly point on the blade. wonderful large fullers on each side of the blade, the handle is nice and long, roughly 6 and half inches, and curves or bends nicely downward in your hand and just gives the knife a wonderful feel like it wants to chop something automatically! only trouble i have had with it is that it wont fit all the way into the sheath again, gonna have to figure that out, there are some parts of the leather frog that are very dry, need to find a proper way to treat it to preserve it from cracking and splitting but over not much to worry about. Now the kuk in the photo here has a black horn handle and steal fittings, mine came with a light grainy gray horn handle with streak of black on the inside of the handle, and brass fittings. still love it! i recommend this kukri to anyone who is collecting Tora blades kuks and to anyone who just wants a giant real kukri to display! (she is very large!)

Awesome kukri

Got this kukri today and i have to say i am very pleased!. I didn’t know a kukri of this size could feel this light and ergonomic in the hand before i got his from tora blades. The blade is excellently hollowed forged with nice acute convex edge and got a beautiful mirror finish. The curved handle allows for surprising ergonomics and it doesn’t penetrate the wrist when you swing it around. The kukri is fast in the hand and the curvature of the handle allows for a secure grip. I have not measured the weight but it feels on par with my cold steel gurkah kukri and the GAK has even a longer and wider belly wich i really like. This is my favorite kukri so far. Highly recommended kukri!

good kukri but has issues

plus points of this kukri: VERY good heat treatment on the steel, overall very good design, high quality sheath, nice hollowed out blade and convex edge. bad points: came VERY dull, and the handle is too small im 189 cm/6'3 ish and my hand just fits on the handle my finger is just touching the steel bolster and its way too thin, i had to wrap it in grip tape to 'fill it out a bit' these are easy fix issues, im just saying if you intend to use this kukri for work there may be some work done before it ready for use.
