10 Inch Special Deer Handle Kukri
This is 10 inch blade deer handle kukri.This is a very exclusive and expensive knife because of the material used for the case and handle. The White Buffalo leather used for the khukuri is very rare and its difficulty in availability make this kukri so special. A live natural deer horn is fitted to the blade. This gives the khukuri a natural and splendid look; appeals an eye for at least a glance. "Special Deer Horn Handle" is a collector’s dream come true, an ideal gift and a perfect piece to decorate a space. All Khukuris have two pockets on the back of the scabbard which hold a blunt steel called "chakmak" for sharpening the blade or for striking spark from flint and a little knife known as "karda" used for skinning small animals . The notch (kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most khukuris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, thus preventing it from soiling the hilt, as well as a device for catching and neutralizing and enemy blade.
