AYO GURKHALI

Recommended Posts

hi all,

this kukhuri was built on order.
it´s light and maneuverable- more a fighter than a tool.
balancepoint is 1,5 inch in front of the wrought iron.

for the clip I want to give credit to jason knight-
my customer saw his ´kukhuri to rule them all´ and insisted on a similar detail-
so I changed the original design and integrated a swedge, but with a more upswept nose.

W1 differentially quenched
wrought iron
ebony

lenght 38cm / 15 inch
blade only: 25cm / 10 inch
thickness: 7,0- 5,5mm
weight 530g / 1,2lbs

thanks for looking!
gerhard

Wieland,

 

You do lovely work. Not a single dissapointing knife in the whole lot of them. Every single one of them a cut above and this one is no exception. A fellow craftsman could almost hate you, except I've an idea of the amount of work you go through and so it turns into commiseration!

thank you all for posting!

I´m glad you like this beast.

 

@ rob toneguzzo & hoy´s forge,

the fuller is ground cold-

first I made and tried a fuller cutting tool like this: http://www.bladesmithsforum.com/index.php?showtopic=9070

but it didn´t work on that rough forged surface...

then I used files and dremel- a really funny work :-(((

 

gerhard

It really sets the blade off...Once again I love it

I agree with everyone else. this rocks. I want more info, if you are willing, about how you got the larger rounded part of the fuller cut near the handle. Was it with dremel or drill bits and then file. That is a cool feature.
