KBH10

This is one of my first designs of a khukuri.  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.

HUGINN

A design that comes in various sizes.  Larger and smaller. Look for Huginn 5 1/2 inch, Muninn and Redemption knives that are similar but of different size.

This knife is for those that want a style of  knife used by the Gurkhas of today.  
SERVICE NUMBER ONE 
blade is the style that is now issued to the Gurkha Military.  Handle is the traditional Nepali style made of Water Buffalo Horn.  This knife was hand forged 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.   It weighs approximately 17 ounces, 10 inch blade, spine is near 3/8 inch thick. The traditional scabbard is more polished.  It is sharp and it is real and ready for use.  Shipping is included in the price for USA.

Did you know?

Did you know I am making big moves? I am trying to clear out many older version knives on the Discount Knives Page Here.

I am also been posting newer styles here recently. I hope you are following me on Facebook as I am getting in the swing of things and see some momentum coming. I really appreciate everyone enjoying a hobby that I turned into something I love.

Welcome to the New Site

This is mainly just a test post so that we can get a feel for how this will work. If you are seeing this, then we are doing something right. 🙂

Knives by Hand – Early Days

Below are early Pictures of Myself – Working by my Coal Forge.  I made this forge by mixing adobe (sand, clay and wood ash) to shape the inside of a large tub.  I placed a 1 inch inside diameter pipe in the bottom and drilled 1/4 inch holes.  A blower was attached (not in picture).  I get up to 1700 degrees using this.  I do most of my forging during the cool hours of the night.
I am mostly self taught as I was unable to find an apprenticeship, but I did receive a lot of information from Nepalese Kamis.  I have a box of scrap metal as proof.   I did learn a lot about knife making from Gurkha’s and Nepalese knife makers.
The hat is to keep my hair from catching fire.  Don’t ask how I  learned this valuable lesson.  I do some of my work at night to avoid Texas Heat.
