Blades of old

Hey all one of my normal hobbies is old wartime stuff Ie tanks / guns / equipment, so it seems fitting to discuss what little I know of bladed weapons. There for how about one of the fancy blades of old for example the kukri knife used for centuries by the people of Nepal as a knife / machete for farming, utility and war, during WW2 (?) they even fitted them on the ends of rifles as bayonets. Now the Kukri is not a simple knife with a blade that raps around its a single sided curved blade (with a little notch so when the enemy leaks your hands dont get messy)  so I will admit I dont see why they did this when the Gurkha were more that terrifying enough with them any way.
