The design and shape of the handle are crafted to give the best possible and fast handling. The full flat tang goes all the way through the handle, glued to the wooden pieces, and further riveted with white metal to strengthen the whole fixture. This AEOF kukri/kukri comes with two pockets on the back of the scabbard which hold a sharpener called “chakmak” for sharpening the blade and a little utility knife known as “karda” used for skinning, cutting paper and opening later. The notch (Kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most kukris/kukris serves as a drain for the blood on the blade to drip out, thus preventing it from staining the hilt.
We highly recommend that the wooden parts on all kukri are treated with the appropriate timber oil or wood treatment prior to use to protect and prolong the life of the timber. All of our exquisite Kukri’s are hand-made and as such there will be variations in size, weight, timber color, and other such features that make them unique and distinguishable from machine-made imitations. Buyers must be 18 yrs and over to purchase any knife or sword. Please note that the kukri is shipped directly from Nepal.
