ParaCord PRO (Water-Proof KUKRI)
Its 100% water proof so why fear water if you can swim…
ParaCord PRO is the sheathed version of the default "ParaCord Khukuri" already offered by KHHI. The knife is smartly sheathed by Kydex material that is made very effective, easy to operate and compatible to various wear and gears and thus the name, "ParaCord PRO". Its handy size with double edges backed up by the everlasting paracorded handle and supported by a smartly done kydex sheath make the Khukuri knife a superior and a superb mini-sized utility knife that will come useful for anybody, anytime, anywhere… and the best part of the knife is it can be used even in watery terrains and conditions.
KHHI for the first time in its history introduces a Paracord khukuri to establish its image as the best khukuri maker and to give further versatility to its amazing product range. It has also been launched as a BUDGET kukri for those who seek for a real deal – Real Steel @ Rare Price – where we believe buying should not be an issue even for the strugglers. As per its name the full flat tang is wrapped by a paracord (made in USA, military standard) using a special wrapping technique developed by KHHI. The paracord is securely wrapped in such a fashion that the user feels very easy and safe to hold the knife. The shape, size, contours and design itself of the handle also make holding safer, much easier and more effective. The sharp edge is honed to make it super sharp and strong using a special manual honing technique where various grit sandpapers are used to accomplish the target (a technique developed by KHHI to enhance it superior quality). The blade is only 8 inch long designated to make it handier and unpolished to retain solid temper, and thus usefulness. The front back portion of the blade is well sharpened to use the knife for stabbing and the blade is purposely made straighter to support this action.
Kydex Sheath: With this announcement we take this opportunity to introduce one of our latest additions, the “Kydex Sheath”, which is added to our online catalog on request by our customers and well wishers, and also after good survey by KHHI. A very high demand of Kydex sheath due to its superb quality and amazing benefits, we believe, will make your khukuri/knife much more better, effective and a superior knife - a very worthy tool for you indeed.
Kydex is a line of thermoplastic acrylic-polyvinyl chloride (PVC) material. It combines properties of both acrylic and PVC therefore it obtains rigidity, formability, toughness, chemical resistance, good interior and is completely water resistant. It is a perfect replacement of leather sheaths as it is lighter, cheaper, durable, holds better and also compatible to various armies’ wears and kits. It is scratch resistant and holds its shape better at the same time. The Kydex sheath offered here is made from imported Kydex sheet all the way from USA having a thickness of 0.06”. It is made for a vertical carriage. The belt holder is completely detachable. The use of “D” ring also facilitates the carriage splendidly. The sheath’s unique shape and its manufacturing technique make the knife very easy to draw in and draw out. This sheath is very strong, safe and very easy to operate.
::NOTE:: “FrogLube” is professionally applied to the Khukuri to protect it from corrosion and rust. Froglube is a non toxic, biodegradable gun cleaner, lubricant and protectant or CLP that protects metal from rusting. It is a specialized lotion that penetrates deep into the micro pores of the metal and prevents elements from coming in contact with the metal and thus corrosion. It is a USDA certified bio-based product which is even edible
