Khukuri has long been connected with Nepal's Gurkhas. The blade has a pronounced recurve. Some of the world's most renowned knives, such as the Bowie Knife, Stiletto, Scimitar, Roman Sword, Machete, and others, have all played significant historical roles as fearsome weapons with warriors demonstrating raw force and daring during times of battle at one time or another.

The khukuri, or 'kukri', on the other hand, outperforms them all. These legendary and historic knives hold extraordinary narratives of valor.
