"If a man says he is not afraid of dying, he is either lying or he is a Gurkha," said Former Indian Army Chief of Staff Field Marshal Sam Manekshaw. The Gurkhas are Nepali's soldiers that have a reputation for their military prowess. Often recruited by other army's, Gurkhas have been battling in South Asia for centuries. Closely associated with Gurkhas are the khukuri knife that they all carry.

We named our khukuri after the Gurkhas as a form of honor. The curved blade is 9" long and is designed as a melee weapon and cutting knife. Traditional khukuri's are 16-18" but at that length they become unwieldy. Our Gurkha Damascus Steel Khukuri has a large olive wood handle with brass inlays. It feels amazing in your hand and looks even better. A hand-stitched leather sheath finishes off this work of art.

Why Forseti Steel?

Each Knife is Unique

All of our knives are made by hand and crafted one at a time. That is why no two knives are the same. The knife you receive will be similar to what you see on our site, but will be unique based on the natural materials used and individual craftsman that built the knife. 

Testimonials

Beautiful, true Damascus steel knives. They set the table with elegance and class.

Love this knife! Compact design, nice grip, feels comfortable in your hand--very sharp blade! As a side for the ladies--it fits in the smallest of bags. You won't be disappointed if you buy it!
