This is a 16″ cross lattice Sirupate khukuri with the hand guard at ricasso.
The blade is exquisite with razor sharp edge for powerful and accurate cuts. Despite the long blade length the khukuri achieves a commanding, refined balance delivering massive controlled power when the energy is put into the swings.
This traditional khukuri is especially used by Rai and Limbu people in the eastern region Nepal.
This khukuri is typically far more slender with a slightly thinner spine which provides for more agility, greater tip speed and less cutting resistance.
The khukuri is used to chop wood, meat, hack bushes etc. It is a dependable khukuri that has the versatility to go anywhere and the full tang handle is helpful to handle just about anything.
The khukuri comes with well built scabbard with pot holes for Karda & Chakmak. Karda is a sharp small knife which can be used to cut small woods, dig holes, skinning out animals etc. Similarly, Chakmak is used for honing the blade and striking on flint to produce fire. Karda and Chakmak produced by GGK are of very high quality as they are too made from leaf spring blade compared to others serving the very purpose .
This khukuri is truly “A good friend for dangerous hostility”.
