Introducing from Neem out of Nepal and designed by Daniel Murray Lake for Knives By Hand. Thank you to Daniel for bringing new designs to Knives By Hand.
This is a very balanced forward chopping blade. The side knife is of very useful length and it comes with a touch of brass to accent the scabbard. I have been out testing one and built the fire seen in the picture using wood chopped from this blade. This would be a great blade for someone wanting a traditional khukuri blade. The Tang goes all the way through the wood handle and is secured to the pommel by peening. In over 10 years, I have never had anyone able to break a through tang. The scabbard has a brass ornament on the tip of the never ending knot and the pommel of the small knife has a similar brass ornament. The side sheath for the small knife and the pommel of the khukuri have Daniel M Lake’s logo in brass. Thicker brass is used than is typical from Nepal. This Khukuri, complete with ornamental scribing on the side of the blade, is a tremendous chopping blade and is one of my personal favorite. SCROLL DOWN FOR VIDEO OF THE KNIFE
The knife weight varies slightly (+/- a couple of grams) as these are hand forged. This is a good knife for General Purpose camp use and can be used for self defense. Price includes shipping inside the USA.
