Cigars and knife are awesome. The case leaves a lot to be desired.
cigars and knife were awesome. The case appears to be a flimsy hard plastic which is easily breakable. The case is not of pelican type construction. Undoubtedly if it is dropped it will crack.

Gurkha Special Ops No. 1
I appreciate fine pieces of self contained equipment such as this Gurka box. When I saw it, I had to have it. Now that I have it, I am so glad I bought it. It may become my special ops auto humidor. The knife is of great quality. I took out the challenge coin and added a hydrometer in its place. If Gurka comes out with a Gurkha Special Ops No. 2, I will probably buy it. I have not at this writing smoked any of the cigars. I can't give a report on that.

Top quality unique kit, well worth it!
Very Impressed with this kit, good quality knife, coin, humidor and holster. As usual Ci shipped fast and for a good price. I bought 2 of these, 1 as a raffle prize for my Shrine club, and the other for me. I haven't tried the cigars yet because this is such a big hit for the raffle my brothers want to raffle another, looks like I'll just have to wait to review the sticks. Any way you slice this deal, it's a good deal, thanks CI :)

Great Deal
Well, whatever chap doesn't like a large tactical case, a good tactical knife, and twenty smooth smokes isn't a fellow I would know. Great smokes. Smooth, chocolaty, even burn. The only thing missing is a bottle of bourbon. Recommended gift for anyone. Would make a terrific care package for our warriors on assignment as well...

Insane deal. The humidor, cigars, or the knife by themselves are each worth the price you spend.

Christmas gift for a friend
The Special Ops "combo" is an awesome gift. I bought the same combo for myself earlier this year. My buddy saw/shared some of mine...with his reaction I knew what he was getting for Christmas from me. He is loving his early presemt.

Everyday cigar
This is my daily go to cigar. At this price, the travel humidor, coin and knife are just a bonus. Top quality all.

Gurkha Special Ops No 1
Worth the price of the cigars alone. The case, lighter and knife were a bonus. The knife is high quality and the case is to. Cigars are smooth and balanced down to the end. A nice long smoke to savor. Pairs well with a nice Canadian whiskey or spiced rum.

A Masterpiece
Where to start? Fantastic smokes. My favorites over all. The additional swag is truly icing on the delicious cake that is the Gurkha Special Ops No. 1. A ton of flavor but it comes on so smooth you can savor every nuance. A few sticks had a slightly tight draw but the majority were spot on. Well worth the price even without the durable travel case which I now use as my travel humi on deployments. The knife and coin are cool but not as useful to me as the case, however, I'm going to have to start giving the cases away since I don't need more than one. Not a bad problem to have.

Enjoyed these
I'm new to cigars so take review as such lol. The cigar tasted wonderful and the draw was very smooth. I couldn't keep the burn even but that is probably on my lack of lighting skills or lack of time in the humi. I'm not a fan of the big Churchill's but am a sucker for hokey marketing lol. The humidor is a nice, well made, large travel case. The knife is a solid, sturdy piece and sharpened up nicely. Really liked the coin.

Best deal
Excellent deal. Cigars are worth the price alone and the extras are worth equal value. I will buy this deal again soon.

Great Smoke
This was my first time ordering a box of the Gurkha Special Ops No. 1. A great smoke - taste and burn were on target. I expected the hard case box and the knife to be junk, but was surprised that both were keepers. The box makes a perfect pistol case when headed to the shooting range.

Not bad at all for what you pay
the draw is a little rough for me and personally I'm not a huge fan of the excessively long cigars seems like I never have enough time to finish them. the flavor is very good and not too overbearing by any means. I really like the case they came in as well as the coin.

Fast service and good product.
the service was very fast and arrived well before its estimated shipping date. My only issue was with the included humidity disc. It began to for white mold after 4 days and had to be thrown out. The Gurkha Spec. Ops cigars are amazing.

Customer Testimonials
Very good cigar. Good taste with even burning. I bought the first round because of the freebies, bought the second round for the pleasure of the smoke. Nice job.
Got this for Father's Day for my husband & he absolutely loved it! Smoked one right away with JB Honey & enjoyed it immensely! The Gurkha Special Ops package was well worth the money & the look on his face when he opened it was priceless!
I have to say this is GREAT! The travel humidor is great, the knife its razor sharp, and the cigars are actually pretty fresh even after transport. I even put my Gurkha grab bag in there and it fits 30 cigars very nicely. I give this product 5 stars across the board. I can't wait to try the Special Ops stick! This is a must buy. I recommend this to all Gurkha fans or the ones new to Gurkha or new to cigars in general. It gives you everything you need. I can't say enough about this product! If you haven't bought it yet, I would because it's an all around great deal!
Really good deal on a great Churchill!! NICE bonus freebies!
Extreme smoking pleasure warning. She blows off two tone smoke. Amazing smooth burn and flavor. I'd choose her with my last supper.
This cigar is no joke. Its starts powerful, sweetens, and ends with a kick. The bonus herf is extremely roomie allowing me to take several choices and doubles to share. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys full body cigars or looking to take along lots of choices.
Absolutely stunning! Not too bold and not too mellow. I love Gurkha and these definitely did not persuade me to look elsewhere for sticks to stock my humidor. Thanks CI, you've got a lifelong customer!
Don't buy this cigar! Nothing wrong with the smoke I just want more for me! I enjoy them and I'm a Gurkha Fan. Quick story my son raids my cigars from time to time with my permission. I could smell him smoking a great cigar and was a little upset because I thought he was smoking one of my good cigars like a Zino or Hemingway. Dang it was heaven just getting it second hand.
I have smoked a lot of different Gurkha's. I can't believe this is rated as full-bodied. It was sooo smooth and mild. I like the Beasts, the Beauties and Widow Makers, but this bad boy was better. Thanks CI for the smoke. I will order my own box now.
At 99 a box, I took a chance on these cigars and I'm not disappointed. If you like maduro's then these are definitely worth a try. Is an even better deal when you take into account the large travel humidor this is included. Great burn, draw, flavor and plenty of smoke.
I purchased this item and was very impressed with the product when it arrived. The Herf-A-Dor it arrived in was very impressive and the cigars were presented beautifully. Next the knife that came free with it was suprisingly big and handy. Then I smoked one of the cigars and was suprised by the flavor and aroma of it. It let of smooth notes and very thick flavorful smoke. I am no expert by any means, but it was a tasty cigar that drew evenly with every puff. Very enjoyable cigar, and very impressive presentation.
I picked up one of these on vacation a couple of years ago. I finally ordered a bundle. I was brought back to the reason I totally love this cigar. It's so chocolatey and creamy! As a result, it is one of my all time favorites!
Very smooth, great flavor and burn, consistent threw out. Still enjoying them.
Very run of the mill cigar. Fairly disappointed. Not much draw other than a vintage musty taste. Hard tobacco bite to it. After reading other reviews and hearing people were getting a heavy cocoa taste really got me down after only 1 out of 3 cigars even gave me a hint of cocoa. One was also packed very tight and had a poor draw. Never the less, it is still a well constructed cigar and was not a horrible taste. 5/10 Rating.
Best deal I have ever had! Great ash from the start, you have a kick from the beginning with spices then starts to mellow down with a darker flavor, and using the box for not just a traveling humidor also a firearms case works really great, and top it all off with a tactical knife couldn't get better than that. Thanks CI Nation for the great deal.
I have well over a thousand cigars of many brands and blends in my humidor, and this is one of my favorites! I treat it as a special occasion cigar, it's that good! The exhale through the nose presents a nice aroma, very pleasing and smooth. 1.5 to 2 hours of pure pleasure, and goes great with a nice rum. Just relax and enjoy!
robust peppery taste. not overwhelming to the palate. very smooth. a very good cigar. JB. From the "D"
The Best cigar I have ever had..nothing like it.
Friggin' AWESOME! Bought a second one because my friends and I smoked the first case up over a weekend!!
The cigars are actually pretty darn good. Not the best Gurkha but for the price, the case, and the size of the stick its a solid deal.
Amazing flavor, with great pull.
This is a great full cigar!! So glad they're back!! Plus, the humidor, knife and coin are a great added bonus!!
I just smoked this cigar and it was amazing! One of the better ones I have had to date. Good choice for anyone. A must try.
Burn was in and out as far as even/uneven, construction very good with a slight oily sheen. The smoke and draw stayed very strong for most of the lit time (which was about 2 hours), never needed a touch up light, but did have to fight a little to remove the band without tearing the wrapper. The flavors stayed more on the woody, earthy tones, and while the second half did some strange things as far as draw and smoke going south, it is worth giving this stick a smoke.
Gurkha is one of my favorite brands to start, but with the travel case and knife it's a real bargain. The cigars are a good smoke too. You can't go wrong.
I'm a new cigar smoker. I've tried about 10-15 different kinds but this one is the best I've had to date. Nice!
Got the cigars to smoke when my son was born with the guys in Afghanistain and they were amazing!! A great flavor and was a relaxing couple of hours with the guys!
I bought the herfador combo kit from the Nazareth store and I absolutely love it. The knife is great quality and razor sharp. The herfador is a must for any serious smoker and the cigar itself is a true delight to smoke.
Nice job Gurkha!!!! These are great smokes, very very smooth, with sweet undertones. Coming from Gurkha you would expect to pay $10-15 per stick but nope. I was very weary of buying such a brand new cigar I'm glad I did though.
Tier 1 excellence. I have several on stand by, and can't bring myself to smoke them too often because I don't want to run out. This is an iron fist in a velvet glove. Strong and smooth.
This Cigar is a work of art. I love flavorful complex cigars and this stick delivers, BIG TIME. The cigar is well made with a beautiful oily Maduro wrapper; it looks and tastes great. I am still searching for the perfect cigar, but this stick comes pretty damned close to being "the perfect cigar". I highly recommend this stick for it's complexity of pepper and spice with a nice smooth finish. It's a great stick from the first puff to the last!!!!!!
A marvellous Churchill. Tons of creamy smoke, easy draw mild flavor. A cigar to relax with when you have several hours to sit back and enjoy.
This cigars are just plain awesome! You can't go wrong with the burn, taste and experience.
I am fairly new to cigar enjoyment but, this is hands down the smoothest cigar I have had to date. Definitely worth every penny!
