Braveheart, the Historic Ang Khola kukri, an EXCELLENT & EXOTIC knife
a true blend of the finest craftsmanship and natural materials makes a perfect outcome of power, impact & beauty...
the amazing legacy of the kukri continues with this incredible knife...
The “Historic Ang Khola Kukri (Braveheart)” is a knife that is highly inspired from a historic piece owned in around 1910 and used by a British Officer who served in India during the British Raj. The original kukri was a private collection/purchase of the brave officer and was widely used in his service time including few wars. It was truly a unique knife of that time from the magical skill of a master craftsman. A remarkable piece from the history and development of the kukri so it had to be re-created to save it from vanishing and being forgotten forever. It's not only an incredible knife but also an important portion of the amazing legacy of the kukri.

'Ang khola' explained...
It is one of the main features of the kukri. Here the panel of the blade is grinded and its mass is taken away in a long elongated path (shallow) as seen in the images of the kukri. The blade is forged and grinded in such a way that two chirras (fullers) are created that are divided by a hump (hill) that runs across the blade. This is also called a dui chirra (double chirra/fuller) format.
In typical kukri term its called “Ang Khola or Ang Kholnu”. Ang means the panel (body) and Khola or kholnu means the opened version or to open. The mean reasons for such type of blade is to reduce the weight of the blade and to give a balanced feel. It also works as a shock absorber for the edge when smashed against any hard object. Here the pressure (shock wave) felt by the edge is reduced by working as a cushion for the edge. The tension created in impact is normalized. It also gives a beautiful look which is possible only from a master craftsman. The two dark grooved in the upper spine of the blade adds beauty.
Bolster (dhaal) … in detail
It is one important and unique aspect of this kukri. Unlike the regular types here a piece of steel is welded to the tang. The steel is first cut into the required size and welded to the tang from all sides then shaped into a bolster. This type of bolster is very strong, durable, and looks really excellent. The fear of crush is also never there.
Worth, Usage, and Significance of this 'Historic Ang Khola Kukri (Braveheart)' as a knife …
When we talk about it simply as an object then the first word that comes in mind is SUPERB. It is complete not just as a kukri but also as a knife. The power, feel, balance, strength, reach, and just about anything about it makes it one DAMN FINE knife. The knife is worth every means by every penny. Its usage range from varieties of works from home to fronts, from the garden to forest and domestic to warfare. Although it is full 12.5 inches long it’s very handy so any small or light works, no problem. It's light yet comes with good throw power so any field cutting works, you will just love it. The kukri has the right weight ad feel to it hence does not burden or slow a user at all. You can work for hours or walk miles with it. It’s very good reach also benefits in aggressive usage like attack or defend (save). The “Historic Ang Khola Kukri” definitely deserves a top 10 spot in your must-have things. Its what you seek for in a Perfect Knife. It certainly demands the attention even to a lethargic and appeals for the ownership.
