heaviest of all mini kukris; small, the sturdiness, compatibility and it's quality
It is the small version and also the heaviest of all mini versions. Though it is small, the sturdiness, compatibility and its quality hasn’t been compromised in any ways. The ‘8 inch Semi-Fuller Full-Tang’ kukri is for those who prefer mini sized kukri to the larger ones. It is compact, durable and is able to perform like the bigger guns.
Blade: The blade is 8inch long comes with highly polished finishing. The panel of the blade has semi-fuller running across the upper portion of the blade. This fuller reduces the unnecessary weight of the blade and allows for easy use. This fuller also equally distributes the impact taken on the blade, giving it extra strength and durability. Whereas the curvature supports the flat surface of the blade and again helps in evenly distributing the impact-taken. Although the blade is heavier, it is well balanced and perfect for long heavy duty works.
Handle: The kukri’s name itself (Full-Tang) signifies that the handle of this kukri is like that of the famous “Panawal” version where the handle pieces are glued with epoxy to the full flat tang and further metal rivets are fitted together to strengthen the fixtures. This full flat metal tang can be clearly seen as lines running though the two sides of the handle. The handle pieces are made from rosewood to give an overall matching look and sturdiness. And both the pommel and bolster are made from thick iron plate to withstand the heavy impact taken by the blade.
Scabbard: It has a normal black leather scabbard made from buffalo leather. Near the mouth, a frog loop is attached where belts can go thorough and the scabbard can be carried around. And at the tip you can find a small lanyard hole just in-case one needs to tie the kukri around his thigh.
