McCurdy Knife (Drop Point n Guard Handle)

 

This specific name to define three things at once;

  1. John McCurdy is the designer of this knife 
  2. It has a drop point blade profile
  3. Handle has Guard as a safety measure


KHHI has been able to maintain close relationships with some loyal and regular customers over the long years in the business of kukri manufacturing. Amongst them, Mr. John McCurdy is one of our oldest customer and a very loyal friend who is also a professional knifemaker and a knife collector from the USA. He has done many successful projects with KHHI in the last decade and amongst many, “McCurdy Project” is one of them. This specific knife is named after Mr. John McCurdy by KHHI.


Blade: The blade is 5inch long with unpolished finishing which makes it a simple and easy to maintain knife. The panel has a pointed shape and curves gently as it goes towards the tip. It has a steep bevel and a very sharp edge. Whereas, the back bevel is blunt and has several cuts. The blade has good temper (54-56 RC) put for hard and rough use.


Handle: The handle of this Kukri is made of buffalo horn and belongs to panawal version where horn pieces are glued to the tang and further riveted to make a strong handle. While the body is shaped to fit in one’s hand perfectly providing strong grip. The top of the handle features a handguard which protects the hand from slipping into the blade and prevents cuts. At the bottom, a lanyard loop is available for strings to go through and prevent falling of knife away from a user’s hand.


Scabbard: For the first time, a 2mm ALL leather Western Sheath is used to make the sheath which is simple and strong. Here, the traditional wooden frame is discarded and replaced by this thick western leather. An extra-large belt loop is made to fit even the biggest ones. At the top, a belt strap is fitted to lock the handle which makes carrying easier and running swifter. At the bottom, brass rivets are positioned in the vital parts to ensure the sheath’s durability for a very long time.
