Kukri Scabbard

# Polished Version:

The Raw khukuri blade made by Kami is first stone grinded and sanded by 60 and then 100 grit sandblaster. After that it is scrubbed by coarse iron dust then medium and lastly fine, that is glued to 6-10” hard cloth wheel. Then buffing takes over which is done by using buff soap and a soft cloth wheel. For Mirror Polish Finishing, another special soap is used and press-buffing technique is adopted to get that mirror look. In the whole process heat is generated in the blade so there is a fair bit of chance that the tempering/hardening is withdrawn resulting into slightly weakening of the blade’s hardness or strength. But this is normalized (controlled) by regularly dipping the blade into the water (normal temperature) kept in a bucket throughout the whole process.

# Semi Polished Version:

The Raw khukuri blade made by Kami is first stone grinded and sanded by 60 and then 100 grit sandblaster. After that it is scrubbed by coarse iron dust that is prepared by gluing in a 6-10” hard cloth wheel and then Medium is used in the same manner. Later a 6-7” wheel that has very fine iron dust (almost as powder) glued in its edge is used in the blade to achieve the Semi-Polished finishing. In the whole process some heat is generated in the blade that may withdraw the tempering/hardening of it so this is normalized (controlled) by regularly dipping the blade into the water (normal temperature) kept in a bucket throughout the whole process.

# Unpolished Version:

The Raw khukuri blade made by Kami is first stone grinded and sanded by 60 and then 100 grit sandblaster. After that it is scrubbed by coarse iron dust that is prepared by gluing in a 6-10” hard cloth wheel. The machining process stops here and Unpolished finishing is delivered. In the whole process minimum heat (harmless to blade) is generated yet the blade is regularly dipped into the water (normal temperature) kept in a bucket as a precautionary measure so no temper/hardness burns off at all.

# RAW Version:

The Raw khukuri blade made by Kami is not even stone grinded or sanded (left as it is). Only a section or two (panel or/and edge) goes through machining (polished/semi-polished/unpolished) should that be the standard finishing (pre-set) of the khukuri knife. No heat is generated so temper issue is completely eliminated. The original temper totally retains in this version. Here in RAW version, the maker manages the kukri’s edge and panel in such way that no machining is required at later stage.

# Black Version:

The Raw khukuri blade made by Kami is not even stone grinded or sanded (left as it is). The Raw part is then thoroughly coated by using primer and black chemical applied until necessary. Then the kukri is carefully heat treated (dried) in a special oven at 200-250* C for 2-3 hours and left to dry for 1-2 days. After that only a section or two (panel or/and edge) goes through machining (polished/semi-polished/unpolished) should that be the standard finishing (pre-set) of the khukuri knife. No heat is generated so temper issue is completely eliminated. The original temper totally retains in this version. Here in Black version, the maker manages the kukri’s edge and panel in such way that no machining is required at later stage.

# Mix Version:

It is the combination of two or three types of finishing versions as mentioned above within the same blade or knife. The finishing is manipulated by combining various versions to get better result and look. The versions/types of blade finishing used in the same blade are mentioned in the knife’s product description.
