This Kukri Battle original was made before 1890. Other kukries were made long before, but it is difficult to determine the exact date. Each kukri is hand made of steel it was cast, forged, molded, and hammered by the Kamis (descendants of the God Vishwakarma) who live in Nepal. While the spears and the sword Kora (broadleaf and typical curve of the tribes of the gurkha of Nepal) were being replaced by firearms, the kukri was the weapon of choice for melee combat. The BhojPure is popular among nepalese because that brings good fortune and prosperity, but in the skilled hands of the Gurkha, became a weapon of terrifying. All of them have been brought by both the nepalese army and by the british army.
