Hailing from Nepal, the khukri is a fine knife whose reputation for cleaving power has become known almost world-wide. This Regimental Khukri Knife reflects the look of the blade that is favored by the Gurkhas, who use the khukri even to this day. What really sets the khukri apart from other knives is the distinctive blade-shape, which features a swelled tip and a forward-set edge that puts more weight and force behind every swing, enhancing the cutting power of the khukri considerably beyond that of a more traditional knife. On this model, the blade is made entirely from carbon steel and features a short, single fuller along the base of the blades spine. It features a notch in the blade, just above the wooden hilt, and the hilt itself is decorated with brass fittings along its length. The knife includes a leather scabbard with brass fittings, and it also comes with two little knives, known as a karda and a chakmak. If you have been looking to bring a khukri into your collection, this Regimental Khukri Knife is an unbeatable choice, one that features both the classic accessories and the iconic look of the Gurkhas knife of choice.
The khukri originated in Nepal, and was largely unknown as a knife until around the Gurkha War of 1814-1816, when the East India Trading Company came into conflict with the growing Gurkha Empire. The two knives included with the khukri are designed for two very specific purposes. The karda is a small, sharpened knife and utility blade, while the chakmak is an unsharpened knife that is used as a honing edge for sharpening the khukri.
