Angkhaalnu (Hollow Grind)
Angkhaalnu in khukuri term means to open out the panel. “Ang” means “Panel” and “Khaalnu” means to open out or grind out the material. It’s a special and distinctive feature of a kukri knife done for strength, stability, style and fast n easy to use. Here the blade material is excessively grinded out and hollow created within the panel of blade. This not only reduces the unnecessary weight and provides a balance feel but also gives strength and stability by absorbing the shock felt by the blade on impact. It’s very hard to craft and requires highly skilled makers to perfect it.
