Kukri Knife From Nepal

Kukri From Nepal
My sister picked up this Kukri years ago when she was in Nepal working for the Peace Corps, and gave it to me. It's a beautiful, hand made knife, and it's the pride of my knife collection. When she gave it to me, she said "This is the real deal, not the one they sell to tourists. This is the one they make for actual use." and it only takes one look at it closeup to tell that statement is true.

  1. The Kukri knife is native to the people of Nepal and has been used for years as a close combat melee knife and tool. Khukri knives are designed to fall on targets faster and more powerful than other knives because the blade on kukri is front heavy.
