Kukri / Khukuri: Kukri III

The second Kukri/Khukuri knife I made. I wanted to give the design a bit of a western touch. The handle is made out of ebony wood in hidden tang construction with a sub hilt. The hilts are accented with red paper micarta liners. The blade is made out of 01 tool steel of german precision production. The knife comes with a black dyed, hand made and punched leather sheath.
