14"Blade MK I kukri/khukuri

 This is the first of the Indian Army Pattern variants, the Mk1. (The Gurkha Museum in Winchester calls this kukri the 'Great War Kukri). The handle has steel fittings, and the nut in the butt is done per the original Mk1 models, in a wooden handle. The style of kukri may well have had origins from the 8th Gurkha Rifles, who screwed a nut ontop of the handle.

 This is the first of the Indian Army Pattern variants, the Mk1. (The Gurkha Museum in Winchester calls this kukri the 'Great War Kukri). The handle has steel fittings, and the nut in the butt is done per the original Mk1 models, in a wooden handle. The style of kukri may well have had origins from the 8th Gurkha Rifles, who screwed a nut ontop of the handle, the sunken nut was probably taken from the 1903 style bayonet. Of all the Mk issued kukri, the Mk1 best reflects a traditionally shaped every day user kukri in Nepal. Its approximate issued dates were from 1903-1917, interestingly the title 8th Gurkhas was first used in 1903 as well. This type of kukri was used in places like the North West Frontier, Tibet (Younghusband Expedition, where a an 8th Gurkha sentry fought off 12 attackers killing three with his kukri), in France in and Gallipoli in WW1.
