"Echo"- the predator sword khukuri, is a true EAST meets WEST blade. Designed by Daniel Murray-Lake from Australia to be a savage bush blade and a brutal weapon, when needed. The primary focus with Echo is in being a powerful and durable bush blade, capable of felling small trees, splitting them down and processing for either firewood or shelter. Capable of battening and digging when required. The extra long full tang handle featuring Daniel's solar wheel cross keeper plate allows for one or two handed operation allowing the user a larger variety of grips and access to both power and control as needed depending on what the task requires. Meanwhile the "S" guard adds beauty but more importantly gives protection to the user's hand for tension free swings.
The blade is full 17" long that is forged with moderate curved profile to cut and perform better. The sweet spot is well exposed which makes so much easier to cut and the straightness also makes stabbing easier. The reach of the blade is well suited for any kind of combative hand to hand situations. Hence the blade can be aggressively used (attacking and defending). The unique fullers in the blade works as stress reliever for the blade (edge), cuts down weight to give balance feel and is also a signature look of the kukri.
As the main blade is quite large, a smaller blade was needed to allow for the finer utility work. The Karda is perfect for carving, meal preparation and other utility tasks. A Chakmak was fashioned out of a file for honing both the main blade and the Karda and also for fire making by striking flint or quartz along it's spine for sparks.
Finally, an outstanding feature of this design is it's Ambidextrous sheath (See photos carefully). This allows for left or right handed carry and also for ambidextrous back carry with the optional accessory. It is definitely one complicated sheath adpoted by Khukuri House (KHHI nepal) but worth by every bit.
Whether in the forest, Jungle, mountains or combat, Echo is prepared for them all as a complete and functional package.

Such a great mix of everything
KHHI service was once again fantastic. They did a great job on my latest acquisition: Echo the Predator Khukuri Sword! The Echo sword design was an absolute win imo. Good job Mr Daniel Murray-Lake! I personally view Echo as a mixture between a short sword of some style (could be yatagan, kopis or some phiilipino bolos), Machete & Khukuri. Not as light and nimble as your battle short swords but you wouldn't want to chop woods with those swords. Not as thin as your machetes, but much more sturdy. Not as stiff as your typical Khukuri but much more suited for combat. It is a great fusion, best of the 3 worlds, in my book. I have placed this sword right by the emergency exit of my house. Should we expect some SHTF situation and I had to immediately rush out, I won't leave without Echo. Highly recommend it for anyone who wants a genuine all rounder survival/apocalyptic blade. As a point of improvement: Echo could benefit from distal tapering, if intended as a pure fighter blade. For those who are only interested in the combat capabilities of Echo, distal tapering could offer a much more liveliness and agility. I personally prefer the blade without the distal taper (as it is) due to the added strength and also due to me wanting the Echo as an all rounder. However, I absolutely believe it would be good to allow buyers to have the option for distal taper. Again, great design by Daniel and great execution by KHHI. This sword inspired me to come up with a mean blade design. I will be presenting my design to KHHI soon, so please STAY TUNED! Faraz

I got my Predator yesterday 6/13/19. It did take a while but it was worth the wait. I have not done a official test on him yet but --(LOL)-- I have done some Pruning of a tree. He is light for his size and handles VERY nicely. I am very very happy with my Predator. I have about 6 blades I need to do a review on but need to finish setting up my course. So more to come. If there are any of you sitting on the fence about getting a Predator. GET YOUR ASS OFF THE FENCE. Its worth every penny. You will not regret it.
