    A local pawnshop has a kukri in very worn shape. I think they want $59 for it. I know I could get the price down, but is it worth it for it's condition? Thanks!

    Yes. That looks like a one off. 30 bucks they'll take it.

    That's what I was looking at. Just the time to re-sharpen it would make me want to buy a new one. Thanks everyone!!

    The Khukuri house in Nepal is where I get all of my khukuris from. It usually takes a month to make them

    The two on the right are Angkhola Supreme. The top left is a Khukuri Eli (from the book of Eli). The bottom left is Super Chitlange.

    The Desert Eagle is for size comparison

    I don't have a real Nepalese made Kukri, but I have one made by TOPS that is well made.
