From its ancient origins, the Khukuri is not only Nepal's national knife but it is also the symbol of the Gurkha soldier, an object of value with which the Gurkha themselves affirm their identity and their pride.
In the famous battle of 1814 in India, the Nepalese Gurkha demonstrated against the English the effectiveness of body-to-body combat with khukuri and was then the nail of the Nepalese myth.
Even today, the Gurkha are part of the British Army and are considered the most feared assault troops in the world.
Ordinary knife is Service 1 with some camouflage variants of the Jungle model and the latest Camouflage, while Service 2 is the knife used for military ceremonies and parades.
At the time of leaving the army for seniority, Royal Khotimora is given (the value of velvet covering the jacket differentiates the various regiments). Long 18 is used during Dashain (Nepalese National Day) for the buffalo sacrifice.
