Tora's WW 1/6 Battalion Issue kukri is a replica of an original in Simon's personal collection. The original was probably picked up by a British Soldier in the Gallipoli campaign in WW1 and belonged to Gurkha 843 Gurung of B Company. It may well have been used/carried at the famous battle of Sari Bair in 1915.

The Tora WW1 1/6 Battalion kukri 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 8.5cm Chakmak & Karda utility knives.

This kukri has recently been selected by 2 Gurkha Squadrons to be used as their kothimora presentation kukri and also by former 6th GR Gurkha Officers to have in their personal collections.

Please note that the tinder pouch no longer comes with the insert.

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.
