This is 8" American Eagle Kukri, It is 8 inch blade and the handle seems like eagle so called Eagle khukuri. The demand of this khukuri is quite higher in America so after we decided to keep the name of this khukuri as American Eagle Khukuri. This type of kukri can be used in cutting wood, meet, bamboo, fruits etc. 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 Souvenir. The handle is unique compared to other khukuri, the metal of the blade in the handle area is flat(full tang) and can be seen all around the handle. Buffalo bone are joined strongly from both sides with two rivets which makes it stronger than the other khukuri (kukri). This is the One of the Best working Kukri.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.
