Mini Panawal kukri comes with the famous and well-built Panawal type handle and hence is named so. The handle is special and strong thus a very functional kukri knife that will tolerate the harshest opponents and treatment.
The flat tang of the blade goes all the way through the handle and rivets are fitted to strengthen the fixtures. The metal tang can also be clearly seen at the two sides of the handle. Further, epoxy is used to secure both handle plates tightly; as a part of reinforcement procedure. Brown Indian Rosewood is used for the handle to give a matching and appealing look to the khukuri.
A semi-circle fuller or groove is forged in Mini Panwal along the upper panel of the blade in the lower shoulder section. It is made to give more strength and durability to the width of the blade while in use. The curvature will give much needed support to the flat surface when striking hard against an object as it observes the tension of the blade. It is also a display of true craftsmanship since it is very hard to craft manually.
A lanyard hole provision is also kept in the tip of the scabbard just incase ones needs to tie the khukuri around his thigh.
