Jungle Panawal (Better)
“Jungle Panawal” is actually the same “Jungle” version reproduced by KHHI but with a superior full-flat-tang handle. The same blade is fitted with a “Panawal” handle to enhance the working ability of the knife hence the name follows as the “Jungle Panawal”.
It is a totally unpolished full-size kukri used for jungle warfare and domestic need too. It is designed for rough use so no finishing (shinning) is done on the blade. It is also an optional knife for the British Gurkhas as a training or combat kukri. It is very famous among users because of its typical look and better feature (handle), as an all-purpose utility knife.
As mentioned above unlike the regular "Jungle", the extra special feature or the strength of this kukri is its handle. It is especially designed for heavy stressful work and has a special fitting of the blade to the hilt. It has a unique distinct handle where the metal (tang) of the blade in the handle area is flat, not narrow and pointed as in other knives. The blade is therefore visible all around the handle. The handle is further joined strongly to the blade with two rivets that can also be seen at the sides.
Unlike other regular khukuris, a leather loop (Lanyard hole) is also made in the tip of the scabbard to hold the knife firmly in the user’s thigh to prevent from wobbling while in motion by using a string. This comes as an additional feature to better and differentiate the kukri from others. The same feature (lanyard hole) is also introduced in the handle.
The total unpolished format of Jungle Panawal enhances the cutting ability and durability of the blade as loss of temper is prevent by avoiding the long machinery process undertaken to polish a blade which generates extreme heat.
Jungle Panawal has a twin loop belt frog.
