The Gurkha warriors of Nepal live and die by this sword called a "Kurki". This sword was gifted to a young soldier to mark his manhood and identity within his clan. 

Gurkha's were even known to sleep with them underneath their pillows and tradition demanded that the soldier keep their blades sharp as a razor at all times. 

Kurki's have been found dating back to the 13th century and almost always are accompanied by the warrior who had weilded it. 

As menacing as it looks, Kurki's are also used by working people to tend their farms and cut their crops to feed their families. 

A versatile tool as we have ever seen, that's to be sure
