Kukri with ParaCord wrapped handle and water-resistant Kydex Sheath
It's 100% waterproof so why fear when you can swim; for places where watery conditions/situations just can't be avoided...
ParaCord PRO is the sheathed and improved version of the old "ParaCord Khukuri" already offered by KHHI. The kukri knife is smartly sheathed by Kydex material that is made very effective, easy to operate, and compatible with various wear and gears and thus the name, "ParaCord PRO". Its handy size with double edges (chisel tipped in the spine) backed up by the everlasting paracorded handle and supported by a smartly done Kydex sheath make this kukri 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 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. A leather piece is also stuck to both sides of the tang to thicken the handle set up so holding is effective. The shape, size, contours, and design of the handle make holding the blade 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 its superior quality). The blade is only 8 inches long designated to make it handier and mirror polished for easier maintenance, to avoid rust, and give a better look. The front-back portion has a well-sharpened Chisel Tip to use the knife for stabbing (penetration) 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 a good survey by KHHI. Very high demand for Kydex sheath due to its superb quality and amazing benefits, we believe, will make your khukuri/knife much 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 for leather sheaths as it is lighter, cheaper, durable, holds better, and also compatible with 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 sheets all the way from the USA having a thickness of 0.06”. It is made for a vertical carriage. The belt holder is completely detachable. The use of the “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.
