13 Inch Blade Gurkha WW Machete Kukri
This is 13 Inch blade Gurkha WW Machete kukri. Not everyone needs a machete Kukri, but if you do, you need it for a reason. Designed for utility, the Machete Kukri is based on a traditional tool Home land of Gurkhas, with subtle updates for modern use, including an ergonomic handle shape and hefty full tang construction to stand up to repeated heavy use. Its distinctive shape—pointed tip, wide midsection, narrow neck near the handle—comes from centuries of use as a multi-purpose tool that could double as protection. This Kukri knife played a very significant role in creating the history of the Gurkhas. This Kukri was also great to use for any kind of heavy or light duty.
