This type of kukri was used in places like the North West Frontier, the Battle of Aubers and Neuve Chapelle in France in 1915, and in Gallipoli at the Battle of Gully Ravine and Sari Bair in WW1 any many other places.. 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. The handle is more practical, more beautiful.
