It means the blade part of this special design looks the same when a human back body is without cloth or it can say in simple language, up and down that is called Pata Pareko in Nepali language. This type of deisgn khukri is famous for the heavy duty working knife to cut harder things like wood, fire-wood etc. The main reason to be single piece from the handle side is to grip the metal piece too while using. The steps on the blade so that while work with the knife it doesn't strike and can easily re-charge the knife and complete the work easily and comfortably. 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.
