    To Hunt A Tiger With a Kukri

    Greetings,

    And apologies for my long hiatus from this forum. Recently I came across a source describing the construction and use of kukris that I thought some of you might find interesting. It...

    That is an incredible blade. I bet it feels great in the hand. Thanks for sharing that!
  3. Nice Collection of Historical Kukri Resources

    I recently ran across a great collection of historical references to the kukri that I thought a number of readers on this forum might find interesting. I looked through the archives for the last...

    Hi David,

    These are generally pretty nice knives. I have a couple exactly like yours. I have heard (and it seems quite plausible) that these are basically unmarked M43's that were sold through...

    All three are lovely, but overall I would have to pick this as my favorite. I really like the geometry of both the handle and the blade. This style kukri always looks elegant to me. Great finds!

    Hi David,

    That is a great looking kukri. I actually received an almost identical specimen back in 2008. At the time Atlanta Cutlery was marketing these as "WWI era" examples based on then...

    To my eye that looks like a nice kukri. I am going to guess that its post WWII and someone fancied up the grip with nail-heads. But there doesn't appear to be anything wrong with that blade. It...

    Hi Keith, Welcome to the forum. It looks like a tourist piece. But on the bright side you didn't overpay for it! There is a sticky on the top of this forum with a good overview of what to look for...

    Very interesting conversation. I have been doing a lot of thinking about how piracy moved weapons, and weapon traditions, around Asia. This is a great illustration of that tendency. I think the...

    I am not really sure when they started making the fakes. But the markings on the knife indicate that it was made at the Cossipore arsenal in 1917. Unfortunately the basic blade shape and knife...

    You piece does not look quite right to me. It appears to be a WWII era kukri (actually a decent knife by the look of it) with recently added WWI markings. There isn't the age or pantina that you...

    Well, I am not an expert in Indian Army kukri, but that is the first thing that comes to mind when looking at your pictures. It could very well be a replica. However, I wonder if it wasn't produced...

    Thanks for posting these. They are an incredible resource, some are even dated (or rather the date of their collection is). I found the range of decorative motifs used on the blades to be...

    Hi Simon,

    Yes, thank you very much for your detailed feedback. I am afraid I haven't been able to put your comments to as good a use as they deserve quite yet as I have not yet made it back to...

    Hi Jonathan,

    I am glad that you liked the article. I emailed briefly with Mark about posting the article on SFI. I would ultimately like to see that happen. I think that the article on the blog...

    Wonderful Kukris, thanks for sharing them. I must say that I really like these short videos. Detailed pictures are nice, but it is often very hard to get a sense of perspective. When you review a...

    Has anyone been able to find a picture of the blade itself?

    Hello SFI,

    That is a very nice kukri. The shape and detail of the blade are just lovely. It exceeds expectations for a presentation piece. In fact, the blade does look like something that might be 19th...
