“We have freed the Eagle kukrily...”
KHHI’s product line gets another boost, gets stronger and smarter with the release of this fascinating and unique kukri. An exciting and exaggerated name, “American Eagle” is given to denote the specialty of the knife as a signifier of one of the world’s most respected and feared predators that is also the symbol of freedom to Americans and others. The “Bald Eagle” found in the US land is the influential factor for the name and look of this kukri because of the eagle’s supremacy, amazement, ferocity and more importantly its use as an icon of the world’s most powerful word “FREEDOM”.
Blade:: The most famous and legendary kukri the “World War” makes the blade of the American eagle. The shape of the knife is the old Gurkha Army model that was believed to have been used in world war days particularly in the 2nd world war. The blade is highly polished to prevent from getting rust and to look better.
Handle:: It is improvised with an unique outstanding and more protective handle; designed to safe guard user’s hand at all times. This distinct handle where the bolster (Kanzo) is lifted upright (about an inch) from the front edge will ensure that the user’s hand always stays at the handle section no matter what. Moreover the handle (steel butt cap) goes slightly bent as it finishes towards the end to provide a perfect grip and a comfortable holding. The handle further has metal butt cap overlapping the end of the handle for strength and look. The handle also facilitates a wrist-loop belt to go through its hole (lanyard) to ensure that the kukri is never dropped. The name “Eagle” is also well supported by the handle itself as it appears to be like that of the head of the eagle (Beak Head and Eyes) when observed closely. The full flat tang (Panawal version) reinforced with silver (aluminum) rivets is another significant aspect of the Eagle Kukri’s handle that furnishes a long-lasting and heavy-duty handle.
Scabbard:: A special type of leather is used to make the scabbard shinier, stronger and better looking. Laced frog (fasten-up) with twin belt loops is fitted for smarter look. White metal chape protects the scabbard’s naked tip and provides beauty to the knife.
2 x traditional small knives are discarded to present a new and modern look.
