When it comes to the knife, few are as famous as the khukri. The unique blade-shape lends to brilliantly effective cutting and thrusting power, and this Assamee Khukri Knife does not fail to deliver a design that lives up to its well-known name. The khukri is almost instantly recognizable, possessing a distinctive blade-shape that is in full form on this knife. The blade has a swelled tip and a forward-set curve, which on a sharpened model would ensure a razor-keen cut and significant impact with every swing. This khukri is of Assamee design, and its little touches allow it stand out from its more contemporary brothers. This blade has more rounded features, as well as a deep, wide fuller along most of the blade. The khukri possesses a round wooden handle that is fitted with brass furnishings, and it comes complete with a black scabbard, for safe and easy storage. It is the little variations in design that allow this Assamee Khukri Knife to stand apart the rest, and it is those same little changes that make it into a rare and impressive piece for any knife enthusiast to own and enjoy.
The khukri is of Nepalese origin, where it was, and in many cases, still is a traditional utility and ceremonial knife of the people. It is still the knife issued to the Gurkhas, worn as much as a ceremonial badge of office as it is an effective and hardy combat knife for use in the field. It remains a popular blade today for its effectiveness, as the forward-set edge creates a hardy chopping action that is difficult to contend with.
