    Shooter saw your nice Kukri ans had to post mine.
    While stationed with the 25 Inf in Hawaii one our soldiers (a true Hawaiian) made a case for it out of Hawaiian Koa wood.
    The Kukri is the real thing

    Looks awesome!!! I need a Kukri for my collection. I have some martial arts sword & knife fighting training. The kukri design just looks like a blade I could do damage with, lol.

    Top...That IS awesome.

    Note the notch on the bottom near the hilt...

    Not classified, it came from Nepal and there are several stories on the notches at the hilt.
    One is to let blood drip off so it doesn't get on your hand. another is a religious symbol representing the teats of a cow as a reminder that cows are holy and should not be killed. or a guard to catch an enemies blade.

    This was given to me by my martial arts master, upon getting my 4th dan grade black belt. There are nicer ones for sure. It’s Stainless blade and razor sharp though.

    Ha ha. Ours truly is a prop/fake, not that it still wouldn't do some damage. We got it at a Comic Con in Niagara Fall, CA a few years ago. We were a little worried about bringing it back through the border, but had no trouble.
