The wildest and widest collection of KHHI now gets even more wider and wilder with the inclusion of this unique and amazing khukuri, “the KUKRI machete”. Built for the kill, crafted to cut, designed to serve and survive and forged to accomplish any task, be it minor or major, the KUKRI Machete is truly an all rounder when cutting, chopping, hacking, slashing, striking etc is the prime objective.
Mother knife: 13” bladed with better and more reach, unpolished for strength and durability that also gives a typical macho look – traditional Jungle (training knife of the Gurkhas) shaped to uphold the Gurkha legacy
Handle: as the strongest feature; a solid one piece wooden handle with the reinforcement of 3 x Rivets. Unlike the “Panawals” (2 x wooden pieces used), wider and flatter rat tail tang goes through the handle and is peened over at the metallic pommel cap - The internal (invisible) rat tail tang is further secured to the wooden handle by 3 x rivets (all the way through) that are visible from outside on both sides of the handle - The rat tail tang stays inside the one piece wooden handle thus is not visible from outside - This unique and more effective process is done for stronger fixture and to withstand the hardest blows or impacts as the single solid wooden grip applied avoids the rare case of displacement like in the Panawals (2 x wooden pieces attached) - Further the reinforced rivets make sure that the tang is always and firmly secured to the handle – traditional ridges are discarded to make holding easier and more comfortable – a see through hole is also made for lanyard wrist-cord
Baby Knife: another important and added benefit – 5 inch long bladed accompanying knife with regular “Panawal” handle (full flat tang with rivets) – equal care and attention given as the mother blade when making – resembles the typical kukri shape, forged even to hack and swing when needed – minor objective not possible or practical by the mother blade can be achieved from this back up knife
Scabbard: regular leather scabbard with metallic chape – brown leather 2mm belt loop frog
