This 12inch long bladed khukuri becomes a vital tool and an effective weapon when “Just to Survive” or “Live to tell the Story” becomes the only ambition of a life. One of the strongest contenders of KHHI’s “Survival Series”, this khukuri with its practical and powerful feature makes it possible for the holder to surpass the ordeal, endure the hostility and tackle the uncertainty when one is all by himself in a helpless and hopeless situation. Nick named as the “Alive”, it will definitely make its master’s life easier and better because of its amazing appetite to serve and save in every way possible.
The blade is unpolished on practical and usage ground since it is basically intended as a utility knife and its shape follows like that of the famous and traditional “World War” khukuri used by Gurkhas with an eye to upholding the proud khukuri history, but more importantly for effective and efficient outcome. Similarly the special handle composes the khukuri as a complete “Survival” knife or what we call at KHHI a “PURFECT” knife as the handle is constructed very durable and dainty by giving extra time and effort. The metal tang is full and flat that goes all the way through the wooden handle and further reinforced by rivets on both sides to boost the whole fittings. Steel bolster and butt cap are also fixed to the handle for smart look, sturdy grip and longer lifespan.
The 12inch Survival comes with normal traditional buffalo leather scabbard, however, the interior wooden frame is flat with sharp bends to facilitate swift operation of the blade. Steel chape is completely discarded so stabbing into flesh can be prevented while carrying the khukuri.
Back Up / Baby Knife:
The usefulness and uniqueness of the kukri; featuring great size, durable grip and perfect working tool is further boosted and taken to a next level up by the addition of this extra utility back up knife, to perform just about any cutting activities; small or big, minor or major. The small straight knife, crafted much stronger and better than the regular companion of a kukri (Karda) makes possible to cut even the smallest things and cuttings. This back up knife or concept gives a great support to the mother blade and eventually to the user making the whole knife package more useful and worthy to have it in survival situation, harsh terrains and complicated times.
A basic cutting tool that can be used for just about anything – one that comes very handy far out in the woods and even at your own backyard. A must for adventure seekers, nature explorers, wild surfers and die hard collectors.
