This is the World War II blade used by Gurkhas during the combat. An exact similar blade like this was used by Gurkhas while serving in Japan. This blade has an historical value. This is a unique knife as it used both as souvenir knife and heavy duty blade. This blade has slightly larger handle which fits people with big hands and the blade is also 12" which increases the reach of blade while chopping logs of woods or trees.
This whole blade can bring down a single tree as a whole.
This type of kukri was used by Gurkhas in World War II, so its called the 3 Layered World War II blade.
(The blade is slightly rust, but it wont affect the effectiveness of kukri, if the buyer wants its shiny then, the rust can be removed easily by using sandpaper). It is an old blade so I would not suggest to clean in machine to loose it natural color)
I suggest this best for woodwork and as an antique knife.
Length - 18 inches Weight - 2.5 lbs Very heavy-duty
