Khukri - The Versatile Curved Blade

The Khukri (Khukuri) from Nepal known to the rest of the world as the Khukri, is a versatile knife having multidimensional uses besides the famed used of it in the hands of the Gurkha soldiers who used it to his comfort as a weapon of war. It would only be natural for him to make agile use of this as it has become a part and parcel of his being since childhood. In a broader sense, one can say the this knife has been a part of history as the blade in the hand of these brave soldiers, played a significant role in almost all major wars where they fought under the banner of freedom of humanity as. This beautiful but dangerous curved knife called the Khukuri had more of a practical use rather than the purpose of causing mayhem and terror in the heart of the enemy even though it was in good cause as it were in the harsh and hostile conditions where it developed it utility. Even though, the days of blades have long passed it time as a military weapon, it still instils the pride of it as a part of the long tradition of Gurkha soldiering and hence been a part of his arsenal and uniform till date in the Nepalese army and those regiments around the world who still have the Ghurkha regiment as a part of their protection. This blade gets it versatility from the way it has been designed. Since, the mass of its weight comes from the front part of it and it forwards drops, its cutting action is similar to that of a guillotine. The angular shape gives it a better cutting edge than most others blades and can be compared to the larger machete or sabre. As mentioned earlier, it is a multifaceted blade. But, first and foremost, since it plays such a vital role in the Nepalese and as most of these people are Hindus, it takes a special place amongst the religion of the people and as a matter of fact, it is blessed during the annual festival of Dashain. The utility of the blade can be seen from the many ways in which it is used by the people who claim it as their own. It is used in agriculture and as a household implement. It helps in building their homes, cleaning the surroundings, chopping firewood, digging the earth around the home, for cutting and chopping meat and vegetables to skinning animals and a tin opener. It is only natural that this versatile blade should be revered for what it has given the mountainous Nepalese folks besides at times the protection from hostility and danger. As a weapon of defense, the Kukri, is used in two different modes; for stabbing with the front point of the weapon as unlike other such weapons the wrist need not be bent giving it the power of greater trust and as a slashing blade, as the power lies entirely in the front of it. This gives the balance and power to cut through muscle and flesh. It is due to this, besides the great domesticated use of it, which has made it a prime object of defense for the Nepalese Ghurkhas to use when the need arises which they have show time and time again in the past to keep their land a free nation from the imperialistic designs of the past and which had also made them one of the most sort after people, that foreign powers wanted to induct into their armed forces. It was all because of the Khukuri knife in the right hand. is a Wholesalers of various category of Nepali khukri provide with FREE SHIPPING in all around wrold. if any inquiry email to us- for more information
