Here's a little info on it
http://www.m4040.com/Survival/Ghurka/History%20of%20the%20Ghurka%20Kukri.htm

my dad gave me one a few weeks ago and they're very durable, it was used as a fighting knife in India I believe. I was suprised when I cut down two trees about a foot in diameter like they were nuthin' and the one I have has a blade only a foot long.

That is one strange looking knife!

I like the british commando knife myself. 7 inches of double edged, well balanced, stabing and slashing fury!

i have also one of these...and in the sheave there are 2 small ones... i was led to belive that they were used by a indian tribe..and once they have been drawn the tribe member would not ut them back inless there was blood on the blad. therefore if they did not kill a peron or cut a person they would usethe smaller nife to draw there own blood.

Quite an intimidating looking weapon. Something not mention in the article, is that it was a tradition among the Ghurka that once un-sheathed, the weapon couldn't be sheathed without first drawing blood.

Edit. oops. didn't read the post above
