5 Inch Ganjawal New Leather Wooden Handle Kukri
This is one of the traditional type of khukuri and EX-GURKHA KHUKURI HOUSE (EGKH) has endeavoured making this khukuri a modification.Here is a 5 Inch blade Ganjawal New leather compact version of the Kuhkuri knife that is handcrafted in the Himalayan kingdom of Nepal. It is a very old traditional khukuri design which derives it's name from the Ganjuwal village in far eastern Nepal.This one is VERY UNIQUE and beautifull scabbard. There is also a pouch behind the tools where flint powder is kept for starting fires. 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.The handle is more practical, more beautiful.
