PRI Hunter

This is also the train or tactical knife of the

Gurkhas. Therefore it is called PRI hunter Kukri.

The knife carried on operations by all the Gurkhas

when they are in trained. It is issued to all

British Gurkha Soldiers on enlistment and is

retained throughout their army career. Crafted by

hand here in Nepal, it has 10 1/2" long blade and

5" long Buffalo horn handle. It is totally

unpolished full-sized Kukri. It weighs 700 grams

with scabbard. The handle is made of buffalo horn,

where the metal of the blade in the handle area is

flat and not narrow and pointed as in other knives

(full tang). The blade is therefore visible all

around the handle. The handle is joined strongly to

the blade with two metal rivets that can be also

seen at the both of kukri’s side. The dulled

scabbard is made of Buffalo hide. 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.
