I live and breath good steel – blade lengths, 10.5″ hardness at edge, 57-61 r, middle is 45-50 and spine is around 30 r – handmade, no single one is identical, though they are similar – 5160 jeep spring steel- ex ghurka khukri house manufacture – the Ghurka Service #1, almost unbreakable and amazing as a bushcraft blade/machete/zombie killing machine.
My opinion, based on extremely extensive testing, these and two other nepalese brands are the best when it comes to khukris- hands down. I have never had a single one of the following brands break, not once! And I am beyond harsh testing.
In order of my choices-
Himalayan Imports – Ang Kola 12″ blade (a work of art, that is almost unbreakable!)
GK&Co. – Sirupate 14″ blade
If you want KLB, KLK or KLS (khukri like blades/knives/swords) buy murikan, if you want truly well made, artistically individual blades- buy from one of the above only.
Free the mind and the body will follow
