This has a 5" Highly Polished blade.

The handle is Horn with Brass fitting, also a lanyard hole.

The sheath is of Green Kydex with a belt clip.

Yet another addition to already existing Biltong kukri family. Due to high carbon steel it is much stronger and can be used for tough work like hacking and slashing. Manufacturing a smaller knife is much laborious than making a larger blade as it takes minute details to work on, hence this blade is made by skilled craftsmen taking longer and harder time. Newly released in 2018, Biltong Advanced Khukuri is a better and stronger version of famous Biltong (Pocket Kukri) knife.

Blade: +5" approx

Handle: about 3.75" Horn including Bolster (or Black Wood)

Thickness/Spine: 6 mm approx. around bolster (gentle distal taper) / widest = 25 mm approx / narrowest = 19 mm approx.

It is a better and stronger version of the regular “Biltong (Pocket kukri)”. 'Advanced Biltong' is made from 5160 high carbon steel like the bigger kukris (thus the name) and hence can be freely used for whacking and hacking etc like any hardcore cutting knives. The blade is very well tempered and laboriously made taking long time and great skill as making small ones is actually more complicated than bigger ones. Another main advantage of this mini kukri knife is that it comes with Army Green color Kydex sheath which makes it very effective and functional. It makes the knife very easy to carry and use and is completely water proof. The shape of the handle is also modified for easy and comfortable usage. The upper flared up part at the bottom of the traditional kukri handle is discarded and rounded moving towards the edge. Such contour in the handle provides easy and prick-free hold. Similarly, straight and cross ridges in the handle + the horn handle which is stronger than wood is totally unpolished to facilitate easier, sturdier and non slippery grip. On the other hand, the blade is highly polished to avoid rusting, for easy maintenance and to look good.

“Biltong", a word derived from a South African meat cutting knife, is your perfect companion whether be it IN or OUT of your house, for any domestic or wilderness activities that require cutting, whacking, hacking etc -  to perform and to survive.

 

[Note:: Incase the horn is not upto the required standard/size then Black Wood will be used instead]
