The words Gurkha and kukri (Khukuri) go together – one cannot be said without the other. Their story is incomplete without each other.

It has achieved fame during WWI and WWII. The kukri has been better known since those days as “The Gurkha Knife.”

This knife is not only the national weapon of Nepal, but also a utility knife for Nepalese people and it holds a unique as well as significant place in Nepalese culture. The kukri represents Nepalese traditions, history and to some extent, spiritual beliefs.
