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.



Inflict 85 Thrust damage, scaling with the player's Strength and Dexterity, and 35 Bleed buildup, scaling with the player's Luck.

Kukris have a much longer draw animation than Throwing Knives, however they inflict significantly more damage and can stagger targets upon impact.


  • 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.
