Anyway, the kukri is perhaps the last still used curved blade in existence. Modern ones are smaller than the original, being all in all an oversized combat knife. Old kukris varied but at 40+ sm length, they fall right in the short sword category for me. Anyway
Larp boffer kukri.
For the record, this is the first time I don't like how a new weapon turns out. The tip could have been better.
I'm not going to give YET again the budget, tools and materials, since they are all the same as for other weapons around. One thing you should consider is how long you want your kukri - that is do you want a big knife or a short sword.
First things first. I decided to use 40something sm core for my kukri, which with tip and pommel would bring it close to half a meter.
Once its done we can start with the blade.
First a piece of foam from a flip flop - it has density and durability and it will shape out the handle of the kukri.
Whats left to be done is by now standard procedure - wrap the handle in leather for better grip...
