The old army khukuri is a continuity of the legendary official khukuris from the glorious history of Nepal .This khukuri was used during the war between Nepal and East India Co.

The legacy of khukuri continues as GGK has modern transformation with well execution regarding the blade size and dimensions . It is the simplest of all khukuris having all the needed basic features . This khukuri carries significant values in the Nepalese army battalion . It is issued to new recruits and army personnel retain it throughout their career . It is a part of their armour which is greatly taken care off till their retirement . Army jawans perform khukuri dance, khukuri drills with this special khukuri on special occasions to the public and always carry on their waist bands during their duty hours . Senior officers regularly inspect the jawans with this khukuri for smartness and tidiness . Nepalese army jawans carry the khukuri with pride and honour with deep respect and much more love .

Two small knives namely Karda & Chakmak are also part of this kukri. Karda is a small sharp knife which can be used to cut small woods, dig holes, skinning out animals. Similarly, we have Chakmak that can be used for honing the blade and to produce sparks for lighting fire.
