8 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 8 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 because there are 7 usefull tools held in the scabbard. It includes the traditional karda(utility knife) & chakmak(blade sharpener) but also has a tweezers, screwdriver/chisel, toothpick/awl, Pencil, and a ear cleaner. You could call this the "Swiss Army knife" of Nepal. The knife as well as the smaller tools all have Rosewood handles. There is also a pouch behind the tools where flint powder is kept for starting fires. It has a VERY STRONG HIGHLY GRADED Carbon steel blade which is strong enough to cut wood or bone! The handle is made from Rosewood . As you can see it also has a beautifully decorated scabbard. This is the most beautifull khukuri we carry and it is also very usefull and unique! The craftsmanship on this knife is amazing so if you are looking for the finest quality khukuri you will not be dissapointed.The blade comes 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,cutting paper and opening later. 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.
