This knife is for those that want an Americanized Palm Swell Handle on a traditional old style war blade used by the Gurkhas of old.
SRITIN PALM SWELL blade is the style that was used by Gurkhas of old. It was used for war and many an enemy fell to this blade. This knife was hand forged in Nepal and comes with the traditional side knives – one sharp and one dull. The Karda (small sharp knife) was used for small tasks. Chak Mak (Dull knife – more of a piece of steel) was used for honing the blade in the field. Handle has been more Americanized. . It weighs approximately 19 ounces (535 grams), 13 inch blade, spine is just under 1/4 inch thick at 6mm. Comes with traditional Nepalese Scabbard. This is one of my favorites and I would have no problem having this on my side during time of war. Shipping is included in the price for USA residents.
