Cold Steel Gurkha Kukri San Mai III

Cold Steel Gurkha Kukri San Mai III



The Kukri blade, with its markedly downward curved blade, has long been identified with the Gurkha of Nepal, who have wielded this blade for over 150 years in the service of the British Empire.

The Cold Steel Gurkha Kukri was inspired by Cold Steel President, Lynn C. Thompson’s close association with Dr. Maung Gyi, chief instructor of the American Bando Association, and renowned for his wide-ranging knowledge and skills. Smashing techniques allow the Kukri to function as a hammer or mallet.

With Dr. Gyi’s input, Thompson designed a longer, narrower point for the Gurkha Kukri with more distal tapering to the spine.

Finally a masterfully designed Kraton handle was added to maximize the blade’s potential. Perfectly contoured and deeply checkered, it offers a superb non-slip grip and cushions the hand from the shock of the hardest blow.

The Gurkha Kukri’s VG-1 San Mai III® blade will out-chop any factory or handmade knives; including swords twice its size, even expensive, hand forged Japanese Katanas. It’s the heaviest Kukri on the market. TThe blade is almost an inch wider near the tip than at the handle, shifting the knife's balance point forward to allow a blow with minimal effort, using inertia alone.

Each Gurkha Kukri is supplied with a Secure-Ex® sheath.

I've been waiting to get this blade for along time now and as they say good things come to those who wait, my friend has a hand made kukri that has good looks a good hold , and a very very sharp blade , but this one excels it and now has a new name in my collection it's called RIDICULOUS .

An amazing blade with such incredible balance for a knife with this heft to it & yet it still feels very lively in the hand, its as sharp 'out of the box' as my Global cooks knives & they are razor sharp! This Kukri blade will shave with no effort of pressure required.

The first thing I did was put a paracord lanyard on the handle if you dropped this knife you'd not ant your foot under it when it landed! whatever this knife touches it cuts... off... its that simple!

All other 'big' blade knifes will be left in this knives wake, with the forward weight bias to it whatever it hits is gone, Serious respect is demanded with this knife such so that I keep it locked in a safe as if you were to grip the sheath at the top edge and draw the knife you'll be in A&E having your thumb stitched back on, this is very clearly marked on the sheath but best not to leave it lying around!

All in all an expensive knife but you get what you pay for & this is worth every penny.

The ultimate knife? I think so certainly cannot think of any design that comes close to the Kukri, & this is in San Mai III the ultimate Kukri.

10/10 to Cold Steel & Heinnie Hayes for the amazing service :)

Owning a san mai III tanto and a san mai III outdoorsman, and a Samurai sword bought from japan sword in Tokyo. I can tell you these san mai III blades are a no brainer they are sharp and robust and indestructible, you can shave with it staight from the box, BE WARNED! I live 6 months of the year in Kenya and I NEVER leave home with out my outdoorsman. I will be buying this Kukri and I cannot wait as it will be a birthday present, I just know it will be a tool that will go beyond its remit. (Posted on )

This Kukri is so impressive it's almost struck me dumb. First off it's wider than any other knife, secondly the edge is rolled, thirdly it's huge, but it handles like a feather, the balance is perfect and it just feels "right".
As the good folks at HH will testify I own a thoroughly stupid number of knives including 2 Rocksteads and the cold steel Natchez Bowie. This is the one I would take if ever had to "pick one knife".
There may be better knives but this causes the biggest stupidest grin as soon as you pick it up.

The clue is in Cold Steel's marketing.Review by

Having mulled over this since getting it, I have to say that what your paying for is the sharpest blade outside of Japanese Katana. Whether or not Kukhri should be that sharp is another matter. To use the CS San Mai II Kukhri for scrub clearance isn't really what it is built for. If you want a scrub clearance or basic wood chopping tool, get a decent machete. But if you want a piece of pure military art in its most sharpest, then invest in this. (Posted on )
