    Sweet Bongo. Do you know what the curve design is for? Throwing? Hacking sugarcane? Lopping heads off with ease?

    Until bongo checks back:
    "While most famed from use in the military, the kukri is the most commonly used multipurpose tool in the fields and homes in Nepal. Its use has varied from building, clearing, chopping firewood, digging, slaughtering animals for food, cutting meat and vegetables, skinning animals, and opening cans. Its use as a general farm and household tool disproves the often stated "taboo" that the weapon cannot be sheathed "until it has drawn blood".

    The kukri is versatile. It can function as a smaller knife by using the narrower part of the blade, closest to the handle. The heavier and wider end of the blade, towards the tip, functions as an axe or a small shovel."

    And this: "The kukri is effective as a chopping and slashing weapon. Because the blade bends towards the opponent, the user need not angle the wrist while executing a chopping motion. Unlike a straight-edged sword, the center of mass combined with the angle of the blade allow the kukri to slice as it chops. The edge slides across the target's surface while the center of mass maintains momentum as the blade moving through the target's cross-section. This gives the kukri a penetrative force disproportional to its length. The design enables the user to inflict deep wounds and to penetrate bone. This has been proven over and over in battlefields where Gurkhas chopped the heads of the enemy off in one smooth slice."

    That's an amazing collection! I would hate to be on the business end of one those Choppers.

    Smarter than I look or, not as dumb as I look. Whichever you prefer.

    I honestly don't know why, but I have always been drawn to this design.
    The older I get the more I realize how little I actually know.
