This is one of the special hunting kukri of Ex Gurkha Khukuri House(EGKH). This is 12 inch blade balance Rosewood handle kukri. This Balance khukuri (kukri) has beautiful blade in shape. The shape of this khukuri is similar to that of Boomerang. Balance khukuri (kukri) means that it can be balanced in the middle of the edge of the blade. To craft this kind of khukuri (kukri) is very difficult because it has to be equally proportionate at the both ends. There is saying that if you throw this knife, it will hit in an your right target. All Khukuris have 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 small animals . 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.
