    Best Kukri Manufacturer

    First, my apologies, I KNOW that there is a thread on this forum all about this, but I tried searching for it and it came up with nothing. Are we having difficulties with the search engine at the moment?

    What can you get the best kukri for a decent price? I am looking for one of the shorter, humpbacked kukris.. isn't there one place that still makes them for the Orient?

    Cool

    Not sure about now but my favorite of the Kukri's I own is the one my dad brought back from India after WW2.

    I like these

    Satisfied with this stuff. I bought a punch knife from them in 1988 and still carry it.

    I got mine in 1990 for $25 and it is still hacking away. Rough and Dirty and not pretty it is a workhorse.

    A "Class One" buddy of mine has a Cold Steel Kukri that we take camping with us. I love it and as soon as I find one for a decent price I'll be picking one up.

    You won't do better than Himalayan Imports. Check out their forum here, they frequently post some really great deals on cosmetically blemished items. I've used mine to hack through some tough stuff and they've never missed a beat. Great service too.

    A good kukri has been on my list of "things I want." I've been eyeballing that 18" sirupati on the Himalayan Imports site.

    I have a Service No. 1 and a Bahadur from Khukuri House (www.khukurihouseonline.com) and like both of them. Great choppers.

    I got mine for about 15.00 at a pawn shop. I found this site and I'm going to try to follow the instructions to make it a better camp knife. http://www.m4040.com/Survival/Ghurka...dification.htm

    The best one I have is an Indian army issue that was appraised at between 110 and 120 years old. Be a shame to chop weeds with it though.....

    Interesting the design differences between the old and new designs. If anyone is really interested I can post some pics.

    I've used the Cold Steel model and it's a little flexible but a good bang for the buck.

    Kukris have incredible chopping power due to the blade design. This can be made even better by utilizing them with the proper wrist snapping technique. The Ghurka troops seem to have made them famous but the design is really very ancient. The blade was also used by Burmese Rangers in WWII and by Burmese Bando warriors with considerable effect.

    I once met the American liason to the Burmese Rangers in WWII. He told of their great joy when facing Japanese bayonet and sword charges in WWII. They never lost and the Japanese often ran in terror when they realized who they were facing when they saw the kukris. He did say that he was really, really glad the Rangers were on our side!

    Ghurka knife fighting technique is pretty basic. If it sticks out, cut it off. This is one of the few knives that can decapitate a man in one blow if the user knows his stuff.

    I have the Service No. 1 and Sarupati (SP?) from there. I have been very very pleased. In fact I had two Service No. 1's and gave on to my father in law.
