This sharpened and heavy duty design is based on ” Historical Army khukuri”. History of this style of blade comes from the battle fields. This is a recreation, but the modified handle is now full tang and a larger for USA sized hands.. It comes with the scabbard and traditional side knives – The Karda (small knife) and the Chakmak (used to hone blade in the field) are useful in size.
It also comes with a traditional battlefield pouch that was used to carry tinder or char cloth for making fire.
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.
