The Princess Knife

The Princess Kukri I don't know what to say about this kukri; King Prithivi (Unifier) is some of the most beautiful knives I have ever held. So much so, it was called the Princess. It is one of the knives I don't think I will ever use. My review is really on the appearance of the knife. It feels weirdly like a sword. In hand, the blade is very light and has a great center of balance. The edge should cut well, in my opinion. The knife is simple, like the King Prithivi Narayan Shah himself. The Kukri has a practical and straightforward elegance to it. The only fancy part of the historical model is the white wood attached to the weapon. To me, the white wood was a status to the King's position. Other than that, it was a weapon, tool, and everything above. Thus, a perfect weapon to survive on and fight on. My suspect, this kukri was used in more than one skirmish. As a history nerd, get this blade! It is a blade that is a reproduction of a piece of history with proper weights and usage. But also since it is cool. Due to its looks, I call it Princess and put it in a place of honor. Side note history: First, who is King Prithivi? The King, Prithivi Narayan Shah, a man in short who conquered much of modern-day Nepal as he sought to create a single Hindu state. A man who wanted to make an Asal Hindustan (Real land of Hindus). From wise leadership, generalship, and several capable leaders under his command, he began the unification of Nepal's Kingdom. A legacy that founded Nepal's nation, from Nepal's Kingdom and its effects still being felt in the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. To the Nepalese, King Prithivi Narayan Shai is the father of the Nepalese nation. The King's knife is in Nepal's National Museum with the many weapons of the King.
