The Bhojpuri design was introduced prior to 1890. Some were made much earlier, but it’s difficult to determine the exact date. Each kukri is hand made; the steel was smelted, forged, shaped and hammered in Nepal by individual Kamis. As spears and the Kora sword were being replaced by firearms, the kukri was the weapon of choice for hand-to-hand combat. The BhojPure is popular among Nepalese because of it brings good fortune and prosperity, but in the skilled hands of the Gurkha, it became a frightening weapon indeed. These have all seen service with both the Nepali military and the British Army.
