The kukri, spelled khukri or khukuri, is a curved Nepalese Knife used as both a tool and as a weapon. The pronunciation "Kukri" is of western origin, the Nepalese people to whom this weapon belongs pronounce it as "Khukuri." It is a traditional weapon for Nepalese people, and also a weapon of choice/side arm for all Nepalese including those serving in different armies around the world.

The cutting edge is inwardly curved in shape and is the icon of Nepal. It was, and in many cases still is, the basic and traditional utility knife of the Nepalese people. It is a symbolic weapon of the Nepalese Army, and of all Gurkha regiments throughout the world, signifying the courage and valor of the bearer in the battlefield. It is a part of the regimental weaponry and heraldry of the Royal Gurkha Rifles, and is used in many traditional rituals among different ethnic groups of Nepal, including one where the groom has to wear it during the wedding ceremony. It is known to many people as simply the "Gurkha blade" or "Gurkha knife".

The kukri came to be known to the Western world when the East India Company came into direct contact with the same, tragically in many instances. This culminated in the Gurkha War of 1814–1816.

Usage

I have seen a Gurkha cut off a buffalo's head with one swing of a khukuri blade.
