From humble beginnings in 1943 as a supplier of Gurkha kukris to the British armed forces, Windlass Steelcrafts has come a long way with its products now being available in every part of the world. The company was founded in 1943 by Mr. Ved Prakash Windlass and remains a family-owned business. Windlass currently has over 500 employees and manufacturing facilities in Dehradun (India), and warehouses and offices in Atlanta (USA).
Today, Windlass Steelcrafts works with governments on six continents, providing military supplies such as kukris, combat knives, dress sabers, personal regalia, and army-grade textiles. Our clothing section offers contemporary and period wear, while we also supply military spec fabric to armies around the world. Further, we are extremely proud of our weapons and armor, which are expertly crafted by a skilled workforce with 60 plus years of experience in the industry.
Countless items from our catalog have been modeled directly off of originals housed in museums or private collections, which helps us to ensure that every little detail is incorporated. In short, our products embody style, substance, and value for money.
