Far superior to any Kathmandu tourist shop souvenir, the weapon you see here is hand forged from a Himalayan workshop; made in the traditional manner for heavy duty tasks, - such as lopping off branches, slaughtering animals and (if need be) self defense. The design hasn't changed for centuries. What more can we say? It is the real McCoy: a functional battlefield quality weapon; a Himalayan survival tool from the shadow of Everest. After the Samurai sword, this is the most awesome bladed weapon to ever come out of Asia. Yours to own!
The internet is flooded with cheap MADE IN CHINA Kukris, most of which are “kukris” in name only, but only the genuine article will fill the gap in your collection. This is no wall hanger, it's solid and built for war and work – you will be pleased!
With the kukri’s origin going back to ancient times, the kukri is not only the national knife of Nepal but is also symbolic of the Gurkha soldier; a prized possession with which he has indelibly carved an identity for himself. The kukri (or khukuri) has been the weapon of choice for the Gurkhas of Nepal since the 16th century - most notably used by the famous Gorkhali Sainik of King Prithivi Narayan Shah. It's employed for almost everything from a utility tool to an effective fighting knife in battle; it's also a unique piece of decoration. The successful war campaigns and swift victory of the Gorkhali Sainik against its enemies must be credited to some extent to this unusual and practical weapon.
The kukri is basically designed for chopping and slashing purposes as a weapon of war, but unlike other combat knives, it can't really be used for stabbing and thrusting; which makes it a highly unusual knife by any standards. Indeed, it is not surprising that such a bizarre weapon evolved in isolation from outside influence. What it totally lacks in thrust, the hooked blade makes up for in its incredibly powerful chop. Despite its martial fame and status, it is also used for household or daily tasks, such building, digging a furrow, to cut meat and vegetables, for cutting trees and so forth. It functions as a cross between a knife and an axe. It is said that when a khukuri is unsheathed in anger it is dishonorable for a Gurkha warrior not to draw blood with it. In such an event, they will lightly cut themselves before returning it to its sheath - one way or another, the drawn blade must be blooded!
In the early 19th century the Gurkhas were busily expanding their empire in the Himalayas, when they made the mistake of trying to annex land administered by the East India Company. The Company retook the land, and with the help of the Royal Irish Fusiliers managed to take their capital, Kathmandu. The British were sorely impressed by how difficult the war had been. The Ghurkhas, whose chief weapons were the very mysterious-looking kukri (or "Kukhri" or "khukuri"), proved to be superb warriors and no novices in the art of war. It was decided that the Gurkhas would make unruly and rebellious subjects, but first class allies. Although there was never any formal agreement, the deal between Britain and Nepal was clear - hire out a section of the army to the British, make lots of money, and retain complete independence. The Gurkha force was soon needed, in 1857 most of India rose against their British rulers, including the Indian soldiers employed by the Raj. Being catastrophically outnumbered and outgunned, the British situation was critical. During this total breakdown of British control, the Gurkhas could have easily melted back into the mountains or switched sides, but instead they remained loyal and played a major part in suppressing the rebellion, later helping to retake Delhi. For almost a century afterwards, the Gurkhas became the fire brigade of the British Raj – wherever the flames of rebellion rose, the Gurkhas would be sent in. The Gurkhas fought alongside Australians in the Gallipoli campaign, and even in the 1982 Falklands conflict – but their real moment of glory came in 1944 at the battles of Imphal and Kohima in WWII, when, despite being outnumbered, they drove back some of the best divisions of the Japanese army.
