This is the brass version of the Angkhola kukri thus the name “Brass Angkhola”. The regular Angkhola bladed kukri is improvised and enhanced with a metallic handle, Brass or Aluminum sometimes. The metallic form of this special type of handle is executed for durability and to give a fancier look. The kukri knife hence is both, a useable and displayable piece.
Brass Angkhola has a blade crafted with a semi fuller or layer (hump) that runs across the main (above) panel of the blade. It is made so to give more strength and durability to the width of the blade while in use and also to cut down unnecessary weight of the blade. The curvature will needed support to the flat surface by evenly distributing the impact force generated when striking against a target. It is also a display of true craftsmanship as it is hard to craft. This is a heavy version khukuri therefore the cut down in the weight makes the khukuri easier to use.
Brass sometimes aluminum is used to make the hilt in order to prevent it from breaking apart even when exposed in the sun for a longer period of time. The metallic handle also prevents the handle from getting scratches and bruises. A fancy and elegant look, a break from traditional look too, is achieved by the brass handle fitted for this khukuri.
Brass Angkhola has a regular scabbard with a protective brass chape. Both its accompanying knives, “Karda (small utility knife) and Chakmak (sharpener) have brass handle, done to suit the overall look of the khukuri.
