This is of the latest product of Ex-Gurkha Khukuri House(EGKH). It is 5 inch blade and the handle seems like eagle so called Eagle kukuri. The demand of this kukuri is quite higher in America so after we decided to keep the name of this kukuri as American Eagle Kukuri. This type of kukri can be used in cutting fruits,B read, dry meet or fish. Among Gurkha Knives it is the standerd size blade which is easily portable and can be given as a gift and take home from Nepal as a Souveneir.The notch (kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most khukuris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, thus preventing it from soiling the hilt, as well as a device for catching and neutralizing and enemy blade. The handle is more practical, more beautiful.
