    Details

    This is one of the very famous knives of Ex Gurkha Khukuri House(EGKH). Afghanistan Operation Enduring Freedom New Version Kukri (AOEFK) is another outstanding frontline khukuri created by Ex Gurkha Khukuri House(EGKH) designated for soldiers serving in Afghanistan. This is 2011 issue kukri to the british gurkha for in Afghanistan. Typical “Jungle’ or “Training /Combat” knife shaped blade but the mounting peak is some what straightened for swift in and out draw. Unpolished so doesn’t reflect, only 11” long so carrying and movement is easier and faster.Typical khukuri shaped handle is replaced by EGKH’s exclusive handle where the top front portion is erected from the actual surface/level to protect the using handle, the erected contour will ensure the hand stays restricted within the handle so it can be prevented from slipping towards the sharp edge of the khukuri blade. The design and shape of the handle is crafted to give the best possible and fast handling. The full flat tang goes all the way through the handle, glued to the wooden pieces and further riveted to strengthen the whole fixture. The regular butt cap (pommel) is discarded but the naked tang pops out of the handle where a circular hole is made as a lanyard hole (wrist cord). White wood is used for the handle to match it or camouflage it with the uniforms of the soldier. 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 such as rabbits. 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.
