This is an 8 inch Panawal Special Gripper with bolster modified into hand guard .“Pana” means “tang ” and “wal” means type. Thus the handle of this khukuri is of famous Panawal version where the handle pieces are glued with epoxy  to the full flat tang and metal rivets are fitted together to strengthen the fixtures. Its one of the most solid khukuri forged by GGK with its unique own design. This design isn't available anywhere as it takes a lot of hard work and special, effort skill to polish its blade using buffing wheel along with shinning soap.

This is a type of hunting khukuri with razor sharp blade.The blade is sturdily built with distinctive cutting power and gives clean finished cuts. The traditional wooden handle has the strong grips flexible for both the hands. The bolster is modified into hand guard to prevent the hands from slipping off during heavy uses. The blade is sharp enough for cutting everything such as meats, bones, soft iron, hard woods etc.
