Introducing an Old Style Khukuri based on famous Mark I (also known as MK1) but with a FULL TANG. This khukuri blade was modeled after what was used during World War I , but by popular request, it has been recreated in Full Tang. Full tang handle is made a bit larger for USA hands.
With the deeper grooves in the spine, this is a style of blade that the enemy would have faced in World War I. The Notch is known as Kaudi (sometimes called cho). The Sheath is also heavier duty with a brass Never Ending Knot on the tip of the scabbard. The endless knot symbol appears on clay tablets from 2500 BC and similar symbols also appears in other cultures and appears similar to the Celtic Knot of the Vikings.
This knife also comes with large side knives that are built for use. The small sharp knife is called Karda. The other is a honing steel called Chak Mak. These are traditional side blades and are hardened.
This is hand forged in Nepal per my specifications and by my Blacksmiths. It is fully functional and sharp. Made in the same technique that was time proven in ground war. This is a good knife for General Purpose camp use and easily used for self defense. Price includes shipping inside the USA.
