Kukri Hunting Knife

Zoe's Knife

weapon (melee)

A traditional Gurkha hunting knife, the Kukri and Sheath

The Kukri blade with an inwardly curved edge, used as both a tool and as a weapon has long been identified with the Gurkha Warriors of Nepal, the ferocious mercenaries who have wielded this blade for over 150 years in the service of the British Empire. The kukri is effective as both a chopping and a slashing weapon. In combat, it is used in two different styles: stabbing with the point, slashing or chopping with the edge. Because the blade bends towards the opponent, the user need not angle the wrist, which makes the kukri more comfortable as a stabbing weapon than other straight-bladed knives. It’s heavy blade enables the user to inflict deep wounds and to cut through muscle and bone. While most famed from use in the military, the kukri is most commonly used as a multipurpose tool, and is a very common agricultural and household implement in Nepal. Its use has varied from building, clearing, chopping firewood, and digging to cutting meat and vegetables, skinning animals, and opening tins.

Shortly after purchasing Zoe asked her friend, Virgil Goode to personally silver-plate this blade for various occult reason.
