Keeping the safty in mind this 9 ” ” Kabjawal Iraqi Chukuri Kukri Knife is design. A metal hand guard is attached just above the handle at the bottom of the blade of the kukri which is known as Kabjawal for the safety of the user. This system is newly designed and very useful for special task like tough and heavy duty.
The name of this Kukri derives from the combination of Churi (local name for small knife) and the khukuri so the name of this khukuri comes from Churri + Khukuri = Chukuri. The blade of this Chukuri knife is the mixture of both kukri and knife. It has khukuri shape in the lower spine (or main cutting part) of the blade and knife shape on the upper spine at the end of the blade. It can be used for both purposes as kukuri and as utility knife when required.
This kukri is called AEOF or Afghanistan Enduring Operation Freedom Kukri Knife is the current issue of Kukri for Gurkhas who are in Afghanistan war. The Gurkhas are deployed since the war started for Enduring Operation Freedom in Afghanistan (AEOF). The Regiment decided to carry new kukri fit to the Afghan environment. Therefore the Afghan Kukri is issued to Gurkhas serving in Afghanistan. So the name of this kukri is derived after the Aftanistan war. The design and shape of the handle is crafted to give the best possible and fast handling. The full flat tang goes all the way thorugh the handle, glued to the wooden pieces and further riveted with whitemetal to strenghen the whole fixture. This AEOF kukri comes two pockets on the back of the scabbard which hold a sharpener called “chakmak” for sharpening the blade and a little utility knife known as “karda” used for skinning, cutting paper and opening later. The notch (kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most kukris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, this preventing it from soiling the hilt.
