Smaller than a typical kukri but no less sturdy and easy to use, the Panawal name refers to the special double reinforced handle style that helps the blade stand up to heavy use. Each blade in the 2-blade set is constructed from a solid slab of heavy duty stainless steel, the full tang Kukris have 3 parts to their 9 inch long stainless steel blades; a pointed tip for stabbing, a wide midsection for chopping, and a narrow area near the handle for whittling and carving. Kukris have been historically regarded as THE tool of central Asia (Nepal,India,Pakistan,etc) and this formidable weapon can be carried either for protection or as a utility tool. Razor sharp, the blade comes in a black anodize finish to help prevent rust with a silver lining. Each sword comes with its own FREE leather snap fastened sheath with carrying loop plus a leather belt strap.
