16 Inch Custom American Eagle Survival Kukri
This is 16 Inch Custom American Eagle Survival Kukri. We are proud to present the latest Kukuri design created exclusively for the “Ex Gurkha Khukuri House” The beautifully made rear “quillion” resembles the profile of the American Bold Eagle and because of that and also due to the very high demand for this knife from our American customers we decided to name it the American Eagle Kukri.
This type of kukri can be used in cutting wood, meet, bamboo, fruits etc. Among Gurkha Knives it is the standerd size blade which is easily portable and can be given as a gift and take home from Nepal as a Souveneir. The handle is unique compared to other khukuri, the metal of the blade in the handle area is flat(full tang) and can be seen all around the handle. Rosewood are joined strongly from both sides with three rivets which makes it stronger than the other khukuri (kukri). This is the One of the Best working Kukri. 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.
