Making of McCurdy Knife explained in detail >>

drop-point-blade-profileBlade: The blade is 5 inch long and comes with unpolished finishing; nice and smooth surface. It has a robust blade shape in basic drop point format. The profile makes the knife easy to handle and use effectively. It has a steep bevel and sharp edge which makes cutting fine and less laborious. The thick spine at 6 mm makes it very durable and also a great whacker. The zimping in spine is to rest thumb and choil in front for index finger to facilitate delicate cutting and carving. 

Handle: The handle is made out of buffalo horn, again unpolished, for better grip. It is a full flat tang riveted version (Panawal in kukri terms) for durability and balance purpose (counter-balance). The overall shape of the handle is very well designed to provide a very comfortable and secured grip (hold). The top of the handle features a hand guard which protects the using hand from slipping into the blade and thus prevent cuts (injury). Whereas the bottom has a lanyard hole to tie the knife in wrist to prevent from dropping (falling).
NOTE[Covid19 has affected the supply of horn. Therefore for now the horn is replaced by dark rosewood until further notice] 

Sheath: A neatly done black leather Western Sheath is adopted for the knife. Its simple, strong and makes easy to operate the blade. A belt loop is cut out from the body to carry the knife from waist. A button strap is fitted in the loop to lock the handle in position.This makes carrying easier and swifter.
