Special Panawal Khukuri (Dui Chirre) with two fullers is crafted for heavy-duty works

"Dui Chirre" in khukuri terminology means "Two Fullers", which this knife has and something that comes as the main strength and feature of the khukuri. This make the knife very special and rare. On top of that the "Panawal" handle which means the "Full Flat Tang" backs up the solid blade really well adding durability and value to the overall khukuri.

Blade: The blade is 11inch long having semi-polished finishing. The blade's range is very effective; not too long and not too short. It comes with certain blade weight yet does not burden the user. It has a hump that runs across from the tip to notch area on the surface panel creating 2 fullers that gives a beauty and beast character to the blade.

Chirra: Two fullers (dui chirra) run across the blade from tip to notch area on the panel. It is created to give more strength and durability to the width of the blade while in use. The fuller works as a shock absorber. It supports the flat surface of the blade for heavy-duty works as it helps to reduce tension that is generated when struck hard against any target. The chirra/fuller also reduces the stock of the metal giving a well balanced weight. It is a display of true craftsmanship as it is very hard to craft (forge).

Handle: It is of traditional style made from Indian rosewood to give a matching look but more importantly to ensure sturdiness. The flat tang goes through all the way towards the end of handle which is fitted by rivets to strengthen the overall fixtures. The tang is seen going through the handle from outside. This full tang version is very durable.


Scabbard: It has a normal black leather scabbard made from buffalo leather however a brown leather thong is double crossed in the front face to give a different look. The tip features a small brown lanyard loop just in-case one needs to tie the khukuri around his thigh. ​Traditional Karda and Chakmak housing are discarded and replaced by "C" cut throat in the insertion. It comes as an attempt to make different from the pack.

What is Panawal?
What does Panawal mean in Kukri term?

Panawal in kukri terms means Flat Tang kukri. “Pana” mean Flat Tang and “Wal” mean Type. Any khukuri blade having Full Flat Tang as shown in the photos above is a “Panawal” kukri knife. Here the tang follows the shape of the handle. The handle scales are fixed to the tang by using rivet/s and each end may have metallic ends fitted to complete the fixture. Panawal is a very strong and durable type of handle especially made for heavy-duty cutting works. It also gives good counter balance to the blade since it has mass and thus weight.
