For years we have been receiving requests from customers who like having a Karda and Chakmak as a backup, about would like a higher quality version.

While a Kukri is a fantastic tool to have in your arsenal, it is often inseparable from it’s two little brothers the Karda knife, and the Chakmak sharpener. While their small size does not make them a good primary tool, they are great to have as a backup. The Karda is usually used as a skinning knife, and is used for small, finer tasks the Kukri might be unwieldy. The chakmak is a sharpener, especially if you lose your sharpening stone.

Another role of the chakmak is to be used, in combination with a flint, or other rock, as a fire-starter, in an emergency. The 5160 Karda and Chakmak are made from the same 5160 high carbon steel as our Kukris. In addition to this, they are heat-treated and quenched in oil, for improved temper and hardness.

The Karda is very sharp, and has great edge retention. The chakmak, can also be used as a sharpener, and is hard enough to be able to throw sparks from a ferrocerium fire-steel. These redesigned to be fitted into the average sized holes at the throat of most Kukri sheaths. The tang also goes almost all the way to the end of the handle, for added strength.
