Parowal (Full Stick Tang)
PAROWAL is the most common/typical handle of a kukri knife. It is a kukri term for FULL TANG in Rat Tail or Stick Tail format. Here the tang comes in triangle or rectangle shape. In Rat Tail the width of the tang in ricasso goes narrower and narrower in a triangular way as it goes towards the butt, where as in Stick Tail the tang goes in a straight line forming a rectangular shape. A hole is drilled through the handle material and the tang is inserted then glue used to fix it. Parowal kukris are very good choppers and easy to handle.
