400484 Genuine Gurkha Kukri

Photos of the only real changes I would make in this Kukri


 

 

 

 

The middle ridge on the handle was removed

 

------------

Changes since this file was first formed.

To Begin with, I no longer recommend this kukri.  I recommend a Kukri Service.

==========================

The handle shown on this page was epoxied over,  as in this picture.

========================

The way I currently modify my kukries. 

First the same picture as above.

Now the modifications that I make to the better, Kukri Service.

Handle is slimmer, after removing center ring.  Notch is cut out, with a finger-stop configuration added.

----------------------------------------------

Changes to the Frog.

Generally I re-make the part that holds the scabbard to the belt, as shown below.

 

and finally, links to other files

As I first began to work with the Kukri, I began to write about it.  

Have written so much about the Kukri, and my opinions and favorites have changed so much, this "master" index is needed.  By no means complete, hope it leads to some clarity.
