Learn about Kukri

The kukri is a knife or small sword, with an inward curving blade used by the Nepalese both as a weapon, a tool and in ceremonies. It is the traditional weapon of the Gurkha soldiers. They are usually about 40 cm long, but a sacrificial kukri was sold in Sydney in 2013 that was 73 cm long.
