An EDC Khukuri


Recommended Posts

New one today. Had an enquiry about an EDC sized Khukuri so have got this trial one under way. A piece of 1075 (.170 /4mm) and decided to do a forge finish on it with a scandi grind. Drill lightened the handle so it has a blade balance for any chopping work it may be used for. I have a hunt organised at the end of the week so want to give it a run on a few goats and hopefully a deer to get some field experience in how it works as a hunting knife.IMG_20210206_153830.jpgIMG_20210206_154006.jpgIMG_20210206_153938.jpg

Got the Khukuri EDC finished and like the blade weight if it was to be needed for chopping. It does balance at the front of the bolster so feels nice in hand. The asian rosewood is a really gummy wood and clogs up thesandpaper faster than any other wood I have worked with but it does finish well.

I have been asked about an even smaller version of this and a quick draw saw this on paper so when I get the Bearded UTI done I may well revisit this and see what the smaller version feels like in hand. I may just like it it as I am a firm believer in just enough knife to do the job.

I decided to make one of the mini hunting versions to take with me on the hunt rather than the larger model. It is more suited to the size of knife I prefer for hunting. I used a thinner steel (.125 instead of .170 for the larger version) and it is a nice little knife in hand. Sort of like the little skinners I do but with the different angle to the blade that will make no difference to how I dress an animal .

Those look great!  I have been looking at skinning style knives for hunting.

Hope to test it later this week on goats and hopefully adeer but usually there are a number of goats so it should get a decent workout but I expect it will work very well.
