a creatively crafted bowie-kukri knife
One of the most interesting and innovative creations of Khukuri House Handicraft Industry. KHHI takes yet another step forward into making real kukri knives of class, power, exception and even wider selection with the release of the “Modern Craft” bowie knife.
Why it is called bowie-kukri ?
The name says it all; it’s a contemporary kukri blade that is fearsome yet friendly. Top notch quality with extremely useful shape backed up by the “comfort-grip riveted full-flat-tang” handle give this kukri a superior and stronger niche than any other kukris that will indeed give a better result, easier maintenance and safer handling. All these amazing unique features of this kukri make it an ideal knife for just about any activities that involves cutting and can accompany in just about any terrains where man can go.
Blade:: Shape is such that it gives better movement and feel - Not too curved so cutting and swinging is easier and faster - Regular notch is discarded but the bottom of blade extended up front and made dull to work as a guard or divider to prevent hand from slipping towards blade section when using.
Handle:: “Panawal” type handle (Full Flat Tang) with a shape that gives easy and sturdy grip – 3 x rivets are further fixed to reinforce the whole handle fixture – the unique front edge contour provide easy, quick and strong holding at all times – Unpolished buffalo horn is used for better grip and matching look
Frog:: A completely new and more effective leather frog is introduced; the “KHHI Farus”– Unlike regular ones here the belt keeper (loop) is made at the back of the frog itself to make carriage very easy and efficient; staying closely to the body – the Frog is fastened by shoe lace or leather thong to strap its two end and also for a new unique look.
Scabbard:: Special pattern (Buttewal) water buffalo hide is used – Inner wooden frame is made flat for easy operation – Metal chape is ignored for safety reason - two traditional small knives (Karda and Chakmak) are also discarded to give a contemporary look – a lanyard leather loop is also fixed in the tip for better and easier handling.
