    This is 8 Inch Gurkha Mini Afghan Rust Free Kukri - Military Khukuri. AEOF or Afghanistan Enduring Operation Freedom Khukuri Knife is the current issue of Khukuri or 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 khukuri/kukri fit to the Afghan environment. Therefore the Afghan Kukri is issued to Gurkhas serving in Afghanistan. So the name of this Khukuri/Kukri is derived after the Afghanistan 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 thorough the handle, glued to the wooden pieces and further riveted with white metal to strengthen the whole fixture. This AEOF khukuri/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 khukuries/khukuris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, this preventing it from soiling the hilt.
