“JyanMaara” – a typical and popular word in Nepalese dictionary that denotes both – a brutal killer and a handsome tough hunk - makes up the name of the kukri, that truly is with accordance to its name – a beauty and beast figure – stunning and savage creation.
KHHI’s relentless pursuit to come up with new and unique designs and establishments has brought itself to releasing this one of a kind khukuri called the “JyanMaara” to quiet the critics, please craftsmen and satisfy hardcore users. JyanMaara’s deadly and dashing look supported by unique and effective large but half (almost) edge (see picture) fitted with very comfortable and compact handle would deliver a devastating blow that no enemy would survive or sustain. The hunky and beauty look, on the other hand, compels the owner NOT to use and simply save it for years to come.
Blade: JyanMaara has a “World War” version blade but more pointed and sleek as it finishes towards the tip. The overall sharp feature of the blade makes carrying and using easier delivering more effectual swings and fun-to-work-with at all times. The unique bevel of the blade is another strong point of the knife. Here the maker has concentrated on the actual cutting area (edge) of a kukri that comes in use while cutting hence forging it very sharp and sleek, where as the idle area has false edge that comes as a reinforcement to the blade to withstand harder blows and larger impacts. The large elongated bevel is unpolished to uphold shaper edge and to inflict deep cut at minimum stroke. The panel is highly polished to work as a cushion to the bevel and also to look good at the same time.
Handle: The JyanMaara’s handle is another unique aspect of the kukri. The full flat tang is riveted with multi (5) rivets to give a strong and rigid fixture. The handle’s shape, design, curves and contours provide a very comfortable grip that gives a great feel and ultimately a great result. The handle fans out in a “Y” shape in the ricasso section as seen in the picture. This unique and contemporary design gives easier hold and avoids the using hand from slipping towards the blade portion which may prove fatal. The handle is one of the strongest points of this kukri.
Scabbard: Brown or natural color (raw) leather scabbard is used to give a d: Brown or natural color (raw) leather scabbard is used to give a matching and striking look to the khukuri. KHHI does this for the first time where the normal procedures of tainting black color is skipped and sewn directly. This raw hide color gives a natural and new look to the kukri. KHHI frog (farus) is fixed to give easy carriage and swift draw in-out. Here the belt goes through the frog (loop is discarded) giving a tight and fitting carriage close to the body. The frog’s system even provides very easy mobility along with the kukri while in motion.
Unlike any other kukris, JyanMaara has a copper (expensive metal) chape (tip) fixed to adorn the kukri.
*Important Note:: Because of the total shortage of the natural (raw) leather scabbard KHHI is compelled to change the scabbard. Therefore customers are requested to choose either “Black” or “Brown” leather scabbard and mention the same in the “Message/Comment” field while ordering online. This change will remain until further notice (availability)
