    Details

    This Gurkha Afghanistan Jungle Operation Khukri is one kind special and unique kukri that can play a key role as an effective jungle fighting/combat knife and defensive/survival tool. Obviously it is not a standard issue knife but may be carried by an interested user/soldier as an essential part of his warfare kit just like a typical Gurkha soldiers who would not go out in a battle without his khukuri. With the ancient belief still going strong in Nepalese culture, where a khukuri is regarded as a safe keeper or a guarding angel it may be fair enough to assume that the GAJO would help stabilize and strengthen a soldier’s heart and mind spiritually, mentally and even practically. The blade comes two pockets on the back of the scabbard which hold a blunt steel called "chakmak" for sharpening the blade or for striking spark from flint and a little knife known as "karda" used for skinning,cutting paper and opening later. The notch (kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most khukuris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, thus preventing it from soiling the hilt, as well as a device for catching and neutralizing and enemy blade. The handle is more practical, more beautiful.
