The kukri (alternatively spelled khukri or khukuri) is a curved Nepalese knife, similar to the machete, used as both a tool and a weapon. It is a traditional weapon for the Nepalese people, and also a weapon of choice/side arm for all Nepalese including those serving in different armies around the world...such as the Royal Gurkha Rifles.



The kukri is effective as both a chopping and a slashing weapon. In combat, it is used in two different styles: stabbing with the point, slashing or chopping with the edge. Because the blade bends towards the opponent, the user need not angle the wrist, which makes the kukri more comfortable as a stabbing weapon than other straight-bladed knives. Its heavy blade enables the user to inflict deep wounds and to cut through muscle and bone.

Three Rapala's, a Kershaw, a Winchester crap knife, a Schrade, a no name cheap dagger, another Schrade my dad found and made a handle for, and a Gerber.



My fixed blades that attach to rifles.



The two long ones are the P-1907 17" for the SMLE No 1 MkIII, and a replica M1905 for the Garand, 16" blade.
