This is the first of the Indian Army Pattern variants, This is 13.5" COLLECTOR 19th Century Authentic Gurkha Kukri. The blade is simmal to angkhola kukri. The kukri comes with a 34.43cm long fullar blade with a 5.5cm belly depth, with a weight of around 750 grams. The handle has brass fittings, the handle is made of buffalo bone. It comes in a good quality Military scabbard and carrying frogs. There is Chakmak and karda with the Military range. This is light fullar blade, blade is more curved same as gurkha WWI issue.The style of kukri may well have had origins from the 7th Gurkha Rifles, the 13.5" COLLECTOR 19th Century Authentic Gurkha Kukriis the best reflects traditionally shaped every day user kukri in Nepal, its approximate issued dates were from 1903-1917, interestingly the title 8th Gurkhas was first used in 1903 as well. This type of kukri was used in places like the North West Frontier, the Battle of Aubers and Neuve Chapelle in France in 1915, and in Gallipoli at the Battle of Gully Ravine and Sari Bair in WW1 any many other places.. The notch (kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most khukuris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, thus preventing it from soiling the hilt, as well as a device for catching and neutralizing and enemy blade. The handle is more practical, more beautiful.
