Learn the secrets of forging a perfectly balanced and shaped Nepalese (Gurkha) Kukri knife that is both an excellent outdoor utility knife and an infamous deadly weapon with an inwardly curved blade, similar to a machete. It is the characteristic weapon of the Nepalese Army, the Royal Gurkha Rifles of the British Army, and of all Gurkha regiments throughout the world, so much so that some English-speakers refer to the weapon as a "Gurkha blade"
This 3 day advanced bladesmithing course will give you hands on instruction in a small group setting to forge your own kukri blade and outfit it with a proper handle.
The course will also cover selection of steel and handle materials, design and ergonomics as well as heat-treating your blade.
