England started recruiting Gurkha for its army in 1816. Since then, their traditional edged weapons – kukris – have been part of the standard issue of Gurkha regiments in Great Britain, India, and Nepal. Normally, cutting weapons used by officers are different from the ones used by the ranks.

Our officer kukri is a little smaller than the standard regimental weapon, but its grip is made of natural buffalo horn. The blade of tempered carbon steel came from the same forge that has made the official edged weapons of the Indian Army for years, The officer's model has a short, narrow fuller from the grip to the curve of the blade and the typical cut outs that symbolize the goddess Shiva's trident. It has a full tang, which is riveted to the brass pommel end.

This officer kukri includes a wooden scabbard covered with black buffalo leather and a brass chape. At the back, there are two pockets for the smaller accompanying knives, the karda and chakmak. The holder for the belt loop is removable as required.
