The western world came to know the kukri or khukuri weapon after the British East India Company came into conflict with the Gorkha kingdom, a confederation of 24 states in the Indian subcontinent. All soldiers in the Gurkha army were armed with two kukri. Also in the First and Second World Wars, the kukri was a widely used weapon in allied and hostile forces. In modern Nepal the kukri is still often used as a handy tool, and in many different armies the kukri is also worn as a ceremonial weapon. The kukri is mainly used for chopping and slashing and has a curved blade.
