    I saw plenty of them a couple months ago in Singapore. The Sings hire Gurkhas from Nepal to act as special security. They patrol the airport and perform other functions for the Sing gov't. All of them have a Kuhkri carried SoB.

    I have a WWII (18") model from Gurkha House, but I haven't been able to find them since (they may have become Khukuri house). Had some trouble with their scabbard but the knife seems fine.

    Why the Khukuris? What is the need? What is the advantage?

    khukuris, or kukris, are the asian equivalent of the bowie knife, machete, and hatchet, but rolled into one single knife. swinging the blade uses less energy than swinging a large knife or machete because of the forward balance, and unlike the tomahawk or hatchet, it's easier to recover from an overextended swing. if i had to choose a blade to fight with, there are only two that come to mind: a full size katana, or a khukuri. maybe two, one for each hand.

    Cool GOT IT! They notified me by phone and email that it had shipped.

    It shipped Saturday from Kathmandu Nepal, and arrived my house in southern Louisiana noon Tuesday!

    Good quality, very sharp, probably a good work knife, I doubt I will actually use it though.
