, This is a Leaf Spring Steel Khukuri that is based on the one I carry in my car. The Full Tang handle has a striker plate for the pommel with a lanyard hole . Handle is more Americanized grip. Spine is 1/4 inch thick and distal tapers toward the tip. It comes with a useful sharp utility knife (3 inch blade) for small work. The Khukri 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.
