The Kukri or Khukuri is a knife, originating from the Indian subcontinent, associated with the Nepali speaking Gurkhas of Nepal and India. The knife has a distinct re-curve in the blade.

Below is a review Bruce Brookhart did on this Kukuri. There are 2 videos.
The knife performed just fine and would make for a good friend to take camping and into the field in general. The full profile tanged knife with textured scales are still like new. The Khukuri comes with a strong wood and leather scabbard also. Cheers,
The Khukuri Handmade and Hand Forged Kukri, Full Tang, Battle Ready Gurkha Kukri is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
