CHUKURI PLUS KHUKURI (REDEFINED)
Named ‘Chukuri’ where the sharp edge at the head section reflects the character of a “Churi” and the front arch belly portion reflects the character of a “Khukuri”.
The bottom of the handle is the copy of EAGLE HANDLE of KHHI MAX. The end of the tang is covered with thick metal which is pointed to the edge-face of the blade to look like a beak of a bird and also features a lanyard hole which looks like the eye of a bird. When looked closely, this part of the handle looks like an American Eagle. While the upper part of the handle has guard which protect the hand from slipping into the blade and prevents unwanted cuts. Similarly, the handle is shaped ergonomically for better grip and comfortable hold.
