the 13" Scourge (Apocalypse) kukri >> FEAR the EDGE..
KHHI Nepal is the creator (first designer, maker and seller) of the "Scourge (Apocalypse)" kukri-bowie that went into production from MAR 2013. This bowie knife is now copied and sold by many kukri, knife vendors as it stormed the knife market in no time. PLEASE BE AWARE OF IMITATION and some crooks who are trying to mislead buyers/visitors by providing fake information in the internet about our Scourge knife. This Scourge kukri is an excellent fusion of a traditional khukuri and bowie knife (east + west). Scourge is an apocalyptic Survival khukuri, Zombie hunter, lethal weapon and a hardcore utility knife.
n. 1. A source of widespread dreadful affliction and devastation, such as that caused by pestilence or war. When the undead walk the earth or your country falls into a state of anarchy and chaos, then this knife is all you need to make sure you survive anything the end of the world as we know it can throw at you.
The Scourge uses a traditional khukuri as a time tested platform for an apocalyptic companion, but while it keeps all the properties which makes kukri knives so famous, the modern alterations are what unlocks the knife's true potential as a weapon and tool which you can rely on when faced with an unrelenting scourge. The Scourge kukri is unique in the wide range of expertise being concentrated down into the knife, resulting in a new level of quality and refinement for KHHI.
The sweeping, unique blade is a full 13" long, giving enough reach to keep distance between you and any wandering corpses, while still keeping the knife's balance relatively lively for combat, something which is aided by the 7-8 mm approx. blade width that is enough to provide heft and durability. The entire back edge from the point to the "knee" of the spine is ground to a sharpened edge (or an unsharpened edge if you so choose) which allows this kukri knife to perform stabs, lunges and upwards thrusts like no other kukri and with the integral guard ensuring that your hands stay safe while performing all manner of tasks. The ridges on the back of the spine can be used for cutting square notches, which are invaluable for making traps as well as acting as an ideal surface for striking firesteels against in survival situations. Finally, the traditional Cho or blood drip's shape has been altered so that now it can also be used as a bottle opener when you need to relax after a hard day of hacking down trees or hacking up the infected.
This particular full tang handle is a first for KHHI nepal, as the rosewood scales are carved ergonomically to match the contours of the human hand. This provides greater grip retention with less effort, meaning that you fatigue less when performing tasks around your camp or hacking through hordes of the living dead. The over sized handle has been specially designed with multiple hand grips in mind. Grip the handle close to the guard to angle the blade better for penetration during thrusts and for a more controlled balance. Hold it closer to the pommel for greater force and reach, ideal for splitting wood or cleaving a zombie's face in two. The Scourge's pommel is formed into a massive skull crusher, with a devastating point that can focus all the weight of the kukri onto a zombie's head, ensuring that you're never left without an offensive option when put into a compromising position. This skull-crusher also features a lanyard hole that makes sure that the weapon always stays with you when lanyard thong is applied thru it. This makes this kukri knife a Zombie Kukri or Zombie knife that can be used as zombie hunting weapon.
The Scourge sheath is another bonus of the knife. It is made very comfortable to operate (withdraw) and very easy to carry as it comes with the attached belt loop that makes carrying so easy. The sheath is made stylish with very nice looking chape and use of shoe lace in the front.
[Please be notified that the default Scourge sheath comes with a lanyard loop tip and the metallic tip (chape/kothi) shown in the photos is fitted only on demand/request]
