GI2 (Gurkha Issue 2nd)

 Enlarge

GI2; for hardcore Gurkha fans and for serious kukri collector, it would also not disappoint a harsh kukri user..

A fearsome, faithful and functional standard army knife that pave its way through to victory and glory encrypting its name into the history book forever. The exact replicating by KHHI of this one of a kind awesome military issue comes as vacuum filler in the huge collection of the kukri world.

The Great Indian Mutiny in 1857 AD brought the British and Gurkhas closer than never before. Thereafter proper and standard military uniforms, gears and equipments were issued to each Gurkha Soldier as they were changed/upgraded to regular national army from so called local or back up army. GI2 was probably the second standard kukri issued to Gurkhas that initiated from very early of the 20th Century. The Great World War or 1st World War enforced mass production of GI2 numbering into thousands. GI2 was seen in action in frontlines like Gallipoli, Mesopotamia, France, Egypt, Sharqat, Ypres, Loos and many more. Unlike the other GIs, GI2 is rarely marked or stamped. A few models have been seen stamped with “FW” letters which may be the inspection mark from “Fort William”. The actual production of this khukuri started from 1903 to 1915 till the end of the 1st World War. The kukri was extensively used by Gurkhas in the battle as their main weapon / armor as guns and ammunition were scarce and of poor quality.

GI2 is a very large and heavy kukri measuring almost 15” long (blade only). Since the user had to rely on the knife as the main back up weapon the long blade was specifically designed to attack, not to defend. The shape is also unusual; more straight, broad panel and flat belly. However the most interesting part is the handle; very short compared to the very long blade (relatively). It has a rat tail tang that goes all the way through the handle and fixed by a diamond shape steel keeper. Butt cap is completely discarded. The wooden handle is fat and straight with thick circular ridge made for easier grip. The scabbard is made from buffalo hide, painted black having flat inner wooden frame underneath it. A brown colored frog is used to probably match it with the belt and holster of the carrying soldier. Like any other GIs, both small knives (Karda /Chakmak) are discarded.
