Gurkha Army Combat Kukri (Loyal)
This is so called because of its use as a combat or a fighting kukri knife by British Gurkha soldiers (Gurkhas) at present days. It is a modern day combat kukri preferred by soldiers for battles and warfare. Gurkha soldiers other than the standard issue kukris can have their own pick for their secondary kukri knife. Most prefer to have this kukri because of its perfect size, shape, weight and style (the simplicity it embraces). All fixtures of the kukri knife are plain and basic yet it retains the solid hardcore look of a classic and deadly weapon designated to destroy and defend. "Gurkha Combat" kukri knife is simple yet style of its own, effective and efficient and very handy and hardy. This kukri carries all the required characters needed for a typical combat (battle) knife that is carried within the enemy territories. A fearsome weapon when you run out of your ammunitions – a Gurkha’s first choice when his duty calls upon him to serve and protect.
The Gurkha Combat kukri knife is slightly longer and more curved than the standard service kukri (BSI) issued to the Gurkhas military units. It is quite same as the "World War" kukri version except the blade and handle are fully unpolished. Here the unpolished version is opted to make the kukri blend with the jungle ambient. It also helps to camouflage with the gears and wears of a soldier as anything fancy would attract unwanted attention. The unpolished horn handle gives better grip and blends with the uniform of the carrier perfectly.
Gurkha Combat kukri knife has a traditional plain leather scabbard with single belt loop affixed in it. Two traditional accompanying knives are discarded. This in a view that today’s contemporary warfare has become sophisticated and demanding so carrying them would prove unnecessary (useless).
This Gurkha military kukri is a typical all-purpose utility knife especially made for rough use. Although the blade has no finishing (polishing) the surface is very smooth and well balanced (level). Even the handle is unpolished to benefit the user with better grip and easiness in handling. It is also the replica of old kukris that was widely by farmers and villagers for their daily domestic works. This type of kukri is highly recommended for jungle, trekking, safari tours and any activities that require cutting.
