This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

The Military Service No. 1 Khukuri by Ex-Gurkha Khukuri House is constructed with a blade of 5160 high carbon steel that has been differentially hardened. The blade has a hard edge that resists dulling of 54-55 HRC, it has a body hardness of 45-46 HRC and a softer, shock-absorbing spine hardness of 22-25 HRC.

The bolster and pommel are of brass and the grip is of polished, carved water buffalo horn. It has a scabbard consisting of carved halves of pinewood fitted together with traditional Nepalese ‘’Laha’’ glue and finished with a tight outer layer of black layer. It has a pair of leather belt loops and is fitted with a brass tip cover. It has two fitted compartments for the pair of small knives that traditionally accompany the Kukri - the ‘’Karda’’ and ‘’Chakmak’’ The Karda is a small cutting knife traditionally used to dress small game, and the Chakmak is a tool used to help sharpen a Khukri. The small knives are of high carbon steel and the grips are of polished water buffalo horn.


Gurkha troops are issued two Khukuris; the Service No. 1 and the Service No. 2. The service No.1 is intended to be the Gurkha ceremonial blade, it is a simple, elegant and traditional design. It is by no means a decorative only blade though - it is just the blade that the Gurkhas keep in perfect dress condition. It is a good blade that is representative of both the Gurkhas and of the Khukuri itself.
