15 Inch Custom Ganjawal Historic Kukri
This is one of the traditional type of khukuri and EX GURKHA KHUKURI HOUSE has endeavoured making this khukuri a modification. Here is a 15" Custom Ganjawal Historic Kukri 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.
It includes the traditional karda(utility knife) & chakmak(blade sharpener). 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 . It has a full tang which means the metal of the blade fully goes through the handle for maximum strength. 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.
