This II World War Horn Handle is one of the Very Famous Kukri of the Gurkhas. With its origin in Nepal this Worl War or Dehradoone Khukuri(kukri) was later imitated by the Indian Gurkha army in Dehradun during World War II. Its popularity was such that Nepal could not meet the increasing demand hence Dehradun took over and started producing it in a large scale. This is how this World War Khukuri (kukri) got its name "The Dehradoone Khukuri" also. This World War khukuri (kukri) has one of the most beautiful shaped due to more curviness in the front part of the blade.It is slightly larger than the current issue.As it is because it was more in use in the World War Days. All Khukuris have two pockets on the back of the scabbard which hold a blunt steel called "chakmak" for sharpening the blade or for striking spark from flint and a little knife known as "karda" used for skinning small animals such as rabbits. The notch (kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most khukuris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, thus preventing it from soiling the hilt, as well as a device for catching and neutralizing and enemy blade.
