Yet another unique new Kukri by Khukuri House Thamel (khukuriblades.com). This new beauty is called the "Khu-Ka-bar" because of its improvised handle seen in Ka-bar knives. A Khukuri with a Ka-bar handle has done wonder to this blade as the grip is phenomenal. The indian rose wood is carved or dug in like circles givng it the best ever grip to any Kukri yet. And to balance it well, an 9 inch blade is given to this Kukri with a "Historic Kukri" shape adding better feel and effective weight. The feel of this Kukri is superb.The scabbard of this unique kukri is made of tough leather hand stitched. No wood, no brass tip and not even the small knife and sharpner. The intention was to loose the xtra weight and the bulkness and to make it more practical also making it more comfy while wearing it on ones belt.This kukri could just be the next generation of Gurkha issue.
