The notch is positioned similarly to a finger choil, which is a pretty common feature on modern pocket and outdoors knives, but again, that's a dinner knife. The handle is going to be rounded and metal doesn't offer a particularly good grip anyway, so adding a choil to allow one to grip up on the knife is pretty superfluous.   Drawings of the kukri as far back as AD show the distinctive “cho” or numeral 3-shaped notch. But the real meaning of it has been lost over the ages. Bill Martino was the owner and manager of Himalayan Imports, the primary distributor of kukri.

Ricasso Finger Notch. In the picture above, you can see my grip using the Ricasso finger notch. Since the NOC Knife is designed to be an extremely versatile knife, this notch allows you to choke up on the blade for precision work. This includes skinning game, whittling wood, shaving, and whatever other work you may need to do. Spine Jimping.   Choil – A curved indentation or notch at the end of the blade edge. Sometimes this can be large enough to fit a finger into, but on the knife above, it's quite small. Ricasso – A thick, flat, unground portion between the end of the bevel(s) and the beginning of the handle.   When unfolding the knife, the spine clicks into a hidden notch on the tang of the blade. Pressure applied to an exposed piece of the spine disengages the lock, allowing you to close the knife.

Notches at the base of knife and kukri cutting edges: Many people in the comments have asked what these notches are for and many people have given theories.   The best explanation for function I've heard is for the little half-circle notch on a pocketknife blade: It gives a point from which to begin sharpening. The fancier ones, like the so-called Spanish notch can do that, but are also a decorative element that serves to set off the blade from the ricasso (if you use one) or the grip.
