A forward curved blade usually around 12-15 inches in length, excelling at chopping/cutting motions. Can be used as a weapon but also a universal cutting tool capable of tasks including skinning, can opening, digging, and cutting firewood. Part of the regimental weaponry and heraldry of Gurkha fighters.
After using his kukri to fight off bandits raiding his village, Bob decided to cut some firewood with it.
