8 Inch Hand Forged Blade Mini Jungle Kukri
The blade is 8 inch long and the Indian rose wood handle is 4 inch long.The blade comes with highly polished or unpolished.It is normally fit for Gurkhas hand due to its short handle and size.Almost all Nepalese use this knife because of its practical size.This khukuri weighs 500 grams along with the buffalo hide scabbard.It can be engraved with dragon or other design as your choice.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.
