just for peoples general knowledge the Kukri isnt a weapon it is actually used for cooking or at least that is its main purpose.
And this is what the Australian soldiers get instead of a Kukri.
F.R.E.D - A small device which is a combination of a can opener, a bottle opener and a spoon. Officially named a "Field Ration Eating Device", but more popularly known as a "F--king Ridiculous/Retarded Eating Device". In the Air Force this acronym can also denote a 'F--king Ridiculous Electronic Device'.
