If you want a modern "tactical" looking kukri, you might check out Cold Steel's version.

I have one that I like quite a lot.

See the link above. The prices are very low, so in retrospect I'm not sure how much there is left to be passed on to the workers, but I got a 15" blade Sirupate off them a while back and it is very strong, sharp, tight etc.. (I've used it for hedging and so on). They will alter their standard designs for you (I got one with a slightly straighter back - maybe 10 or 15 degrees less 'kink'). Finish is not up to Albion standards, but I thought it very good for the price. The sharpener and by-knife that come with the scabbard are not very impressive, but since I wasn't after them anyway, that wasn't a problem for me. Scabbard itself was plain but good. Production and delivery were on-time and trouble free. Overall, it must be the best value edged thing I've ever bought.

Himalayan Imports, without a doubt.

Superb craftsmanship, a wide variety of sizes and styles, plus an unbeatable guarantee.
I have a dui chirra (double fullered) chitlangi that I just adore.

I didn't surrender, but they took my horse and made him surrender.

There is always Patrick Barta at TEMPL if you are very patient and have some 700 EUROs to spend. Check it out at "

I add to the chorus praising Himalayan Imports. I bought a Sirupati second hand and it is an awesome deal for the money. Fittings are tight, blade is thick and robust. Got one with buffalo horn handle and it's beautiful.

I also like that it's individually crafted and no two are exactly alike.
