It is one (second) of the standard issue khukuris of the legendary British Gurkhas of the year 2009.
Recruits are issued with this full unpolished kukri knife for training, exercise, assignment and for combat sometimes.

The inclusion of Service Ceremonial (no.1 khukuri) into standard issued kukri knives in early 1990’s also brought the initiation or need for a rough utility knife for actually using that was filled in by the Service No.2 or the Training Knife, also know as the No.2 Sarkhari khukuri in army vocabulary. And consequently Service No.2 was also made the second issue khukuri to all new recruits by army officials. Now from early 1990’s, like never before a new soldier would get 2 khukuri as per the choice and requirement of the army standard from the appointed local contractors. The same “Jungle” knife that soldiers bought in past was upgraded and made a part of standard issued khukuris to the Gurkhas. This action by army is primarily executed to bring more uniformity and tidiness, be it in “Parade” or in “raw Terrain”.


Like its old counterparts the khukuri is totally unpolished from tip to tail including its two small accompanying knives. However unlike its predecessors the blade is slightly thicker and wider with a steep peak. A rat tail tang goes through the handle (hidden) which is peened over at the brass pommel (butt cap). The blade is identical to Service No.1 2009, totally unpolished however. Any kind of stamping is also not done. The total unpolished format also comes as an advantage as it enhances the cutting ability and durability of the blade as losing of temper is prevented by avoiding the long machinery process undertaken to polish a blade.

The scabbard is plain and simple made from water buffalo hide. It has double loop belt holder (frog) with a fasten-up system. The double loops are secured by black rivets for a strong fixture. A protective brass chape (tip) is also fitted in the scabbard for support and look.

The unpolished horn handle of the Jungle provides better grip and easier handling too. Some No.2s are also camouflaged by green cotton cloth or similar materials by soldiers for warfare to ensemble with their uniform and not to attract any unwanted attention.

Service No.2 because of its typical look, special feature and very close association with the legendary Gurkhas is one of the best sellers of all times. It is an all-out all-purpose utility knife that carries the history, and also has all characters of an assault knife.
