These are some collection of antique kukri which we collect from different places of Nepal village. This Khukuri are used by Ex-Gurkha Army (soldiers) in war. The large Long Leaf blade was made for war. As spears and the Kora sword were being replaced by firearms, this was the weapon of choice for hand to hand combat. In the skilled hands for the Gurkha, it was frightening. Many blades are marked in Devangari script with the date of manufacture and Each has seen service with Gurkha regiments.This Auntic Khukri is 75 years old. It belonged to a farmer whose father had it made in 1935 using railway track brought from India. This Kukri has been used for everything, from chopping woods to clearing bushes, from building house to killing chickens, from sacrificing goats to domestic work in the kitchen.It was in 1981 that this farmer's father got ill and never used it again. It was put to rest but the ill man never had the time to take care of it as it got rusty and got worn out.(There were no paper work to prove its oldness. We had to believe it by the look of it and facts shared by this farmer's son). Now this Kukri is only a collective item.
