The Khukuri is a curved goblin knife, similar to the bent machete, used as both a tool and as a weapon. Traditionally wielded by goblin assassins, it is often called a kukri, goblin knife, or throat-cutter amongst other races.

The khukuri is effective as both a chopping and a slashing weapon. In combat, it is basically used in two different styles: stabbing with the point, slashing or chopping with the edge. Because the blade bends towards the opponent, the user need not angle the wrist, which makes the khukuri more comfortable as a stabbing weapon than other straight-bladed knives. Its heavy blade enables the user to inflict deep wounds and to cut through muscle and bone with relative ease. However perhaps the most deadly feature of the khukuri is that the oil called nhantang that maintains its blade is impregnated with a particular kind of venom, carefully milked from the six-eyed swamp spider native to the Chalnfens, to which goblins have developed a high tolerance over generations of using it. Because the oil dilutes the venom's potency, it seldom has a noticeable immediate effect, but should a goblin's victim escape his minor wounds will quickly fester and necrotize. Severe doses cause bleeding from all orifices, kidney failure, and a long and truly horrific death.

The cutting edge is inwardly curved in shape. The blade's distinctive forward drop is intended to act as a weight on the end of the blade and make the khukuri fall on the target faster and with more power, however the edge is kept razor sharp for cutting throats and opening veins, but the weapon also finds use as a machete, climbing aid, and can even be thrown with relative effectiveness. The khukuri also has a religious significance in goblin religion, blessed as the harbinger of secret death by both goblin deities during annual religions festivals.
