This is a 13.5 inch 2 fuller battalion mirror shining Khukuri. This khukuri was carried during Rana regime. Rana premieres were very fond of carrying beautiful khukuris on their waist so GGK reproduced it in traditional attire but with the modern ergonomics combined.
After the great wars the significance of hand forged knives were greatly felt because of the fearsome nature shown by these blades in the battle field. These knives stood as the identity of valour and galore and great army officers started searching ferocious knives for upkeeping the traditional descend, as a result Officer khukuri were seen on the waistband of Army personnel .
Traditionally the khukuri comes in the silver mounted scabbard "kothimora"but with slight difference GGk reproduced this army khukuri in 2 fuller form . The kothimora scabbard was replaced by leather scabbard in the older design . The high polished razor sharp blade with the etched inlays gives the distinctive powerful cuts . The slender design blade maintain an ideal powerful, controlled balance for the chopping and cutting purposes. Both pommel and bolster are made from thick iron plate to withstand the heavy impact taken by the blade .
The khukuri with stick tang is flexible for easy handling with bone handle carved with ridges providing non slippery and sturdy grip , exerting more force on the cutting material . The flexibility gives the power for more hacking and stabbing so this khukuri has been the choice of selected army officers. Till now legends own this khukuri as a matter of great pride.This khukuri has two chira blade with stick tang. This khukuri possesses a razor sharp blade and is very easy to handle.This khukuri can be used for outdoor works such as cutting woods, clearing bushes etc.
Two small knives namely Karda & Chakmak are also part of this kukri. Karda is a sharp small knife which can be used to cut small woods, dig holes, skinning out animals. Similarly, we have Chakmak that can be used for honing the blade and produce flints for sparkling fire.
Karda and Chakmak made by GGK are of high quality compared to others.
