This is a 11 inch Balance Khukuri. The balance khukuri is a blade with neutral balance that will stand on its own or edge at the balance point. Balance khukuri make every experience of handling & using the khukuri a great experience as they have more weight at the tip than the normal khukuris. The balance point is in the ricasso near the notch "chu".

This is a hunting type of khukuri designed by G.G.K with special geometrical shape that can remain balanced centrally and  give excellent power. Because of good balance it changes direction extremely fast  and also strikes hard at the target. This khukuri is normally used to split wood.

This khukuri comes with a very strong blade with good fitting handle which makes it very efficient and agile. This khukuri is  recommended for outdoor works such as chopping woods, clearing bushes, jungle trails etc.

Two small blades namely Karda & Chakmak are also part of this kukri. Karda is the sharp small knife which is typically used for carving, digging holes, skinning animals, eating, preparing kindling, whittling wood, etc. Similarly, we have the Chakmak that is typically used for honing the blade and striking sparks for fire.
