This is World War Dorawal khukuri kukri. The “Dorawal or Dora-wal” in khukuri terminology means “Full of Ridges”. A numbers of ridges are crafted all over the handle to give a superior and comfortable grip. “Dorawal” is the contemporary version of the traditional sacrificial & Nepalese farmer hevy Kukri. It is actually a simple type just made with an improvised handle executed to provide better grip, which is crucial for an effective use. The standard handle is made with ridges all over it and purposely unpolished (left raw) to deliver a superb handling in whole. Ridge provides resistance and compactness to the palm of the using hand and thus becomes very easy to use even in a wet condition.

The standard handle is made with ridges all over it and purposely unpolished (left raw) to deliver a superb handling in whole. Ridge provides resistance and compactness to the palm of the using hand and thus becomes very easy to use even in a wet condition. This basic but important feature of the “Dorawal” is its extra specialty and distincts it from the herd. Moreover the 13.5 inches blade is an ideal size to treat the khukuris as a machete or a sacrificial knife. The blades coverage is excellent and well balanced hence better result and superior control is bound to happen. Dorawal with its ideal blade size backed up by an effective handle makes it an excellent sacrificial, utility, domestic and a must-carry jungle knife. he 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.
