Kukris are throwable items in Dark Souls III.

In-Game Description

Small throwing machete.
Throw at enemies to cause bleeding damage.
A unique weapon originally used by swordsmen of Carthus, but now popular among bandits and thieves.


Firelink Shrine

Undead Settlement

  • Nine are found on a corpse hanging high from the tree where the Evangelist and the peasants are praying. Use a ranged attack to bring the body down.

Catacombs of Carthus


When used, the Kukri is thrown in an arc; the throw is slower but also more damaging than the standard Throwing Knife. Additionally, it inflicts Bleed build-up and has A/S scaling with Strength and Dexterity, respectively.


  • Real kukris are not designed for throwing, as they are far too top-heavy to be thrown effectively. Instead, they actually function as a form of survival knife that can be used effectively as both a melee weapon and in place of various other tools, ranging from knives to hatchets.
