A Kukri (or khukuri) is a heavy Nepalese knife used both as a tool and as a weapon. The most distinctive feature of this weapon is that the blade has a deflected angle with a thick spine and a single sharp cutting edge; this causes the end section of the blade to strike square on, greatly increasing chopping effectiveness. It is most famously known as a part of the regimental weaponry and heraldry of [[NepaliWithNastyKnives Gurkha fighters]]. Forming part of the survival equipment carried by airmen during the early 1940s conflict in Burma, the Kukri is an essential item equally effective at hacking through jungle brush as it is through limbs.

To put it succinctly, a kukri is a knife that thinks it's a hatchet. It is most famously known as a part of the regimental weaponry and heraldry of [[NepaliWithNastyKnives Gurkha fighters]].

* In the {{Elseworlds}} tale ''[[JusticeSociety JSA Liberty Files - The Unholy Three]]'', we have a brief scene of Franchise/{{Batman}} using a kukri against an alternate reality version of Two-Face who resembles a giant bug. This version of Batman was [[ThouShaltNotKill more likely to use lethal force]]. An action figure based on this version can be viewed [[http://www.oafe.net/yo/dcdew4lfb.php here]].
