How to maintain your Kukri:
1. Apply machine oil, gun oil, or animal fat on the blade after every use.

3. Your Kukri blade is made of Carbon Steel and can rust easily. In case of rusting rub it with fine sandpaper, clean the dirt using some oil or gasoline and wipe it with a clean soft cloth then apply oil. Check the blade frequently and apply oil regularly.
