SERVICE KUKRI (GURKHA KNIFE)
The kukri or khukuri is a Nepalese knife with an inwardly curved blade, similar to a machete, used as both a tool and as a weapon in Nepal. Traditionally, it was, and in many cases still is, the basic utility knife of the Nepalese people or Gurkha.

The Gurkhas, or ‘Gorkhas’, are Nepalese soldiers who have been enlisted by a variety of military authorities, most notably the British Indian army between 1857 and 1947. The Gurkhas were first an enemy of the British empire in the Anglo-Nepalese War from 1814 to 1816. But the British were so impressed by the Gurkhas ferocity and resilience that after winning this war, the British created the Treaty of Sugauli in 1816, allowing them to enlist Nepalese citizens to fight for the British Army. Known for their courage, loyalty, and ability to adapt to almost any condition, the Gurkhas were deployed in numerous war zones across the globe and were instrumental in many allied military operations during the first and second world wars.

It comes with two small knives in the top of the scabbard, one is blunt (Chakmak) and the other sharp (Karda). The blunt one is intended for starting a fire with a flint and the sharp one is a intended general purpose knife. It is up to the user to pick which one
