APF khukuri is same as the “Nepal Police” version except it has its own monogram at the back of its hilt (see photo). It’s shape and style is traditional. Blade is 9 inch long, little fatter than regular versions and is well polished. Handle is made from wood, is about 5 inch long (over-all) and has brass fixtures (bolster and butt cap). APF’s own monogram is fitted in the butt cap as “ID” of the knife which is the unique feature of this khukuri. Black leather sheath having a brass tip and belt frog is used as the cover of the blade.One set of traditional accompanying knives, called the Karda (small knife) and Chakmak (Sharpener), complete the set. The khukuri is actually a Dress and Duty knife but also occasionally used for other purposes. Most jawans (recruits) prefer to use their own khukuri of choice for activities and actions like exercise, training, combat, warfare etc. No stampings of any sort is done in the blade.
APF khukuri is a perfect collectible and utility knife (well made for working). Carrying it will definitely honor all the jawans who lost their lives for the institution, country and above all for their “Belief”.
