Trekker's Khukuri; Mini size, Raw & Unpolished blade, best for care-free use
Recommended for all the trekkers in the remote areas of Nepal... it’s your lifesaver… A must carry GEAR
In accordance with its defined name, it has a mini-sized blade with unpolished and raw finishing. The unpolished feature of kukri represents the old historic kukris used by farmers and villagers for their daily domestic work. Kukris like these have made a productive impact in the life of rural farmers as a pure cutting tool since time immemorial.
Trekker’s is an all-purpose utility kukri knife that is made coarse for superior effectiveness and performance. The unpolished horn handle provides better sturdy-grip and the unpolished blade retains the initial hardness/temper put into it. Despite the fact, that the blade of this kukri has no finishing or polishing the surface is still very much smooth and well balanced.
The 8-inch blade comes in typical kukri shape. The blade skips the long machinery process of getting polished and as a result, the temper (original hardness) stays on resulting in stronger edge/bevel and additional sharpness.
The Handle is made from the buffalo horn and left unpolished for rough and care-free use. Both pommel and bolster are made from thick iron plate to withstand the force and impact taken by the blade.
The scabbard is made in a traditional way using wood and buffalo leather. The process is itself unique as the wood is carved perfectly to fit the blade, and then covered by processed leather, and sewed beautifully to give a fine finishing. The wood (Bombax Ceiba) used is very light and durable.
Upon recommendation: 2 x small accompanying knives, Karda and Chakmak, and the metallic chape (kothi) shown in the photo are discarded at default (do not come) to decrease the weight of the kukri, BUT it can be added on request (no extra charge).
Mini Raw UNP is also recommended for hikers, explorers, jungle and safari tours. Similarly, it comes handy in and around the house as a kitchen knife or for gardening in the backyard and similar tasks. Because of its easy size and sole objective to cut, it is widely preferred by all people belonging to different walks of life. Designated for small but significant work, for within and beyond one’s property, to get the cutting activities smooth and successful.
What made us make the Trekker's Khukuri >>
How the masterminds at The Khukuri House came up with an innovative and creative idea to produce a practical Kukri knife for Trekkers & Hikers?
As we all know Nepal is famous for trekking, and most of the trekking routes are in remote areas, in the mountainous region, covered with dense forest & wild animals. Anyone trekking in this place always needs to be very cautious. The climate and nature are always unpredictable in the Himalayas, and we always need to go prepared. Understanding the importance and safety of the hikers who love the unbeaten tracks of Nepal, Khukuri House came up with practical size kukri easy to use and carry for a long time.
The regular kukris available in the market seemed to be a little heavy and large, so we decided to cut down both the size and weight of the kukri. We also believed that the kukris sold in Thamel, the only tourist place wasn’t up the standard for the value of money. hence, the Trekkers Khukuri was invented... to give tourists a hight quality kukri for the money the invested. A kukri knife for their lifetime. Now just walk with confidence & pride… you are in safe hands :)
