Product Description

A utilitarian version of the Nepalese fighting knife

Kukri are adept at many different tasks depending on the design, light and fast for a primary fighting knife or thick and heavy for back-woods bushcraft. Citadel's version takes a more utilitarian approach, hitting the sweet spot right in the middle of these two extremes. Extremely useful around the camp or on a hunt the knife can be quite effectively pressed into fighting service if needed.

The high carbon steel blade is hand forged from imported DNH7 steel and differentially hardened in the Japanese style. This hardening process creates a hard, durable edge and a softer more resilient spine and tang. The blade is sharpened to a full convex profile which greatly increases the durability of the hardened edge.

A full grain leather belt sheath is included featuring Citadel's unique button and loop fastener. This system securely holds the knife in place but can be broken easily enough in the event the knife needs to be removed quickly for an emergency. As DNH7 is a high-carbon steel the knife should not be stored in the leather sheath for a long period of time; a nylon zipper storage pouch is included for long-term storage instead.
