    I ve a khukhri abt 30 urs old. Its total
    length is 18 inches. The handle is made of deer horn. It seems pretty old nd very rugged made traditionally. I was a kid back then nd didn't know its value.
    Now, I m going to clean it nd restore it.

    great information but i dont like chopping apples .. khukuri isnt home knife… or an axe to chop wood.. it is for killing or chopping someone off… i am not telling you to demonstrate chopping anyone which is alive but you should have chopped whole pork or maybe meat with bones

    Whats up with all this chopping and slicing…its never about khukuri its about the person who uses it…and most of all its our tradition…no one would be compatible with khikuri except gurkhas

    People, fighting knives are not meant to be razor sharp. You ever wonder why axes are not super sharp? Sharp knifes are for delicate work. When you need a blade to be able to punch through body armor, bone, while also opening cans and boxes, it needs to be a tough edge. Sharp enough to get the job done, but dull enough to be resistant to impact.

    They served well in Afghanistan. Brave Gorkhas. Proud of them that they did a good job in Afghanistan. They are like tigers, their reputation reaches the enemy first then the enemy has to decide whether to run or surrender.

    Devnagiri script or Negari script?
    The script clearly mentioned "Shree 3 Chandra" i.e. Shree 3Chandra Shamsher Junga Bahadur Rana, from the aristocratic Rana family, who had ruled Nepal from 1901AD-1929 AD.

    If you're in a stand off with a gurkah and he pulls his kukri, you know you're in trouble. Hell, you know you're in trouble when you know you're facing a gurkah

    My dad was a WWII Royal Marine Commando, he told me lots of great stories about the Gurkha’s although I served with the 22nd Reg I really never came across any Gurkha’s unfortunately

    Mr Sweet Costarica,
    First time I have seen your hands without gloves on. You do need some practice in striking in the same place twice.
    " Tora Blades"" Didn't win.!!!!! .one would think that an expert like you would know that dozens of different types of khukuri's were used in WW 11.
    Those that subscribe to this man, beware of Tora blade's, They are Rip you off.
