Along with a Khukuri knife, a cover, two smaller knives (Karda & Chakmak) are also included.

Karda & Chakmak:  The Karda is used as an auxiliary knife and the Chakmak is used for sharpening the blade in its blunt.

CAUTION

Khukuri looks simple, but it could be a dangerous weapon. There are some ways to use it in order to avoid an accident. Protect the cutting blade from metal, stone and other hard items. Make your blade always dry after use and apply some lubricants on the blade to protect it from the rust.
