Camouflage Warfare kukri (Ultimate); Hide n Strike; a knife to victory
This kukri knife is named so due to its unique feature in which it's sheath is camouflaged to hide the knife within the body. Here the Nepal Army's official camouflage fabric is used for effective result. The blade is done unpolished (matt) for rough use. This compliments the sheath and also the overall purpose of the kukri knife. A loop is fixed in the tip of the sheath to hold the knife firmly in the user’s thigh to prevent any wobbling while in motion. This comes as an added feature since mobility and accessibility becomes very crucial in any warfare activities.
All these special characteristics in both >> 1) the SHEATH, to hide away from enemy’s vision and get mould with the terrain in the best possible way 2) the BLADE, handmade for rough hard usage, have helped it stand out amongst it's siblings.
It is often carried by Gurkha soldiers during exercise and training as an optional knife (the no.2 kukri knife). They would either carry "Camouflage Warfare kukri" or sometimes camouflage their personal service no.2 by a jungle-look type fabric. Its equally important as a combat-battle knife in hand to hand warfare situations. It is also famous with jungle, trekkers, hunters and safari goers.
It is a typical unpolished all-purpose utility knife that is also used as a domestic tool in Nepal. Although the whole knife has (blade+handle+brass fixtures) full unpolished finishing the surface is very smooth and well balanced. The kukri blade is very durable as it skips the long machinery process. This maintains the original heat treatment making the edge very tough. Unlike other traditional kukris, the two small knives (Karda and Chakmak) are completely discarded.
