kukri gurka knives

Since its ancient origins the Khukuri is not only the national knife of Nepal but it is also the symbol of the soldier Gurkha, a valuable object with which the Gurkhas themselves affirm their identity and their pride.

 

In the famous battle of 1814 in India, the Nepalese Gurkhas demonstrated against the British the effectiveness of hand-to-hand combat with the Khukuri and that was when the Nepalese myth was born.

 

Even today the Gurkha are part of the British army and are considered the most feared storm troops in the world.

 

The service knife is Service 1 with some camouflage variants of the Jungle model and the more recent Camouflage, while Service 2 is the knife used for ceremonies and military parades.

 

At the time of retirement from the army for seniority the Royal Khotimora is given (the value of the velvet covering the sheath differentiates the various regiments). The Long 18 is used during the Dashain (the Nepalese national holiday) for the buffalo sacrifice.
