Yes, thats where mine are from, no worries with the quality or service. Postage will cost about $30 though. If you look out on BF.com, Uncle Bill posts specials on the HI forum. Top bunch of people.

Countryboy,

Have you got a whole collection? Something else than folders....
I like khukuris , but prefer the non-embellished type. I've only got one , a Indian Army Model of 1981 if I'm not mistaken. You don't see them often here in Belgium and if you find them they're expensive. I've got mine some years ago from US Cavalry for 17$ and customs did not even look at it...

Welcome

Hi CountryBoyz

I have four Kukris, one service issue, one early twentieth century and two of the simple truckspring ones with a plain wood handle they use as everyday tools in Nepal. I use them for firewood chopping and the biggest one is excellentfor that. I have ben thinking of getting a Himalayan Imports one for a while. There is also an ebay seller called Tora Kukri Supplies here, has anybody used them?

Tora is not (unsurprisingly) well thought of on the HI forum but I would bet that the khuks on offer would be as good as the HI ones. I will be getting one when finances permit to test my theory....

I'm tempted...

Hello Ross

Tora kukri are handmade in Nepal to our specification. We have been going for just over four years and have most of the range made to our specifications as the spine on Nepali made kukri are far to thick and their historical replicas are not correct spec, we have just about got it right now on the historical range and we are looking forward to the new batch comming to us.

All the best Sirupate (Simon from Tora Kukri)

PS Hello you kukri fans!!!!!!!!!!!
