    and these are original hand made kukris from Nepal. the longer one has a blade maybe a bit over half and inch thick and has serious weight to it, it is of a type used in meat markets by the butchers as well as for self defense, a bit like a bush african who carries his axe everywhere. the slightly smaller is one of the various shapes used by the Gurhkas when in military service with the British Army. they are both some of the sharpest knives i have ever come across when i got them. you can see (prob not on these photos) where the steel has been hand beaten during the making of the blades.
