When the guns have blank adapters mounted.

Looks to be a Ghurka training exercise, and they do love their kukris.

I think their battle cry is "Ayoh Gurkhalis" [sp?] which is "Here come the Gurkas!"

Here's a question for the Ghurka afficionados:
Are the modern blades shorter than the older ones?
That blade looks relatively short, compared to others I've seen (and I own a couple of old ones). Maybe it's the angle.

My teachers only ever said don't run with scissors. They should have been more specifc. I keep running with my knife out and these bullies keep tripping me. Mom says "you'll poke an eye out with that" Let's hope she's not right.

Sorry not very funny. I couldn't come up with a short funny way to say what I wanted to say.

Are the modern blades shorter than the older ones?

What's the definition of modern? The Nepalese stuff is still made by hand. Kukuris have, to my knowledge, always come in different lengths to serve different roles (farmer's tool, soldier's knife, etc). There are companies churning out cheap steel/stainless kukuris and a few higher end machined knifemakers like Cold Steel.

There are several military issued kukuris to my knowledge. Some are plain jane while there are ornamental/ceremonial kukuris which have some fancier fittings on them. 12" is a popular standard length but I've seen some really big kukuris several feet in length and some small cute ones. The modified Nepalese I own measures 10-1/2" in length by KhukuriHouse but I don't think it's standard issue. The "Camouflage Special " from Khukuri House ( i)

This site has genuine (to my knowledge) kukuris for cheap, and it might give you a better idea:

It looks like the guy is hunting for rabbits or snakes. "Shhh, be wewwy wewwy qwwwiet!"

above poster is exactly correct, kukri's have been available from letter opener size to one that was just over 5' for decapitating water buffalo.

Ultimate source for Kuk's is here:

As far as the caption goes...

I guess I should have been more specific abour "Old" and "New".

I was under the impression that the WWII era Ghurkas had a standard issue size. Is that not true?
Following the same logic (there's that word again, never good when applied to military) I presumed that any modern issue blades would also have a standard.
