Name & Meaning
“Aayo Gurkhali” in native Nepalese means “Here come the Gurkhas”, the famous war cry of the Gurkhas. The legend says it all, the fearless Gurkhas used to charge upon their enemies screaming this rousing phrase in a typical Gurkhali style. It is believed to have been the enemies’ worst nightmare and comrades/battalion's best possession/armor at the same time.
This khukuri is basically made in the “World War” version issued to the Gurkhas in world war days however with an improvised finishing. This khukuri is fairly curved thus effective hence favorite of many. The blade is slightly larger and more curved than the current khukuri issued to Gurkhas. Steel pommel and but cap are fitted in a regular horn handle to give an over all dashing look.
The blade is engraved with the phrase, “Aayo Gurkhali” and the famous “War Cry” insignia (logo) of the Gurkhas as a dedication to the brave soldiers and also to recall their famous war action.
The scabbard of this knife is made in army green colored leather to give a different look and also to camouflage the Kukri with the uniform and gears of the soldiers. The beautiful green scabbard of the Kukri brings more durability and can be a displayable item at the same time. A cross kukri insignia of the legendary Gurkhas is also mounted on frog of the khukuri, done to further give a typical “Gurkhali” look.
