Introduction

The Gurkhas (Gorkha warriors of Nepal) have been renowned for their Kukri knife, a curved knife with a pointed head and the cutting edge inwardly curved. It is very effective to use on the battlefield in the one-to-one condition. Kukri fighting technique consists of the movement of the hands in different directions that can deliver power and precision.

History

The earliest kukri model ever found belonged to Ram Shah, the king of Gorkha (around 1627 AD). It is showcased in the National Museum of Nepal. However, the use of this weapon became widespread around 1768 when the Gurkhas rose to power over the entire country.
