Designer & Name of Kukri :
A true modern classic, KHHI is proud to showcase the creation of designer John McCurdy, a true and good friend, and loyal customer KHHI since 2007. A sleek and lethal looking blade with a creatively designed, and comfortable handle for the current and coming generations thus the name 'New Generation Kukri'. McCurdy’s kukri is a combination of a traditional blade shape and with a contemporary handle style for optimum performance and style for the coming generation. The McCurdy Modern, is the best of both worlds. A work of art that can be used as an all-around rough use knife. This kukri gets the title McCurdy, US and designer of this kukri is from the United States.


What makes this a 'New Generation Kukri'?

Blade: Long-time customer and knife designer John McCurdy started with the classic “World War Historic blade shape; a Chirra-fuller in the blade works like an “I-Beam” used in construction. This reduces the weight while maintaining the strength and rigidity of the blade. The chirra also absorbs shock and reduces the tension felt through the handle.  The unpolished blade not only looks good but means that the blade has a better temper than versions subjected to polishing.


Handle: The McCurdy Modern has a unique handle shape. The upper portion acts as a finger guard, to prevent the hand from sliding onto the blade, while the lower section ensures the blade doesn’t slip out of the hand during heavy chopping. The full flat tang emerges at the bottom to form a lanyard hole, where a retention strap can be attached. The handle is also secured to the tang via glue and three brass rivets.


Sheath: The McCurdy Modern has a simple looking, classic sheath. The Kukri is devoid of any flashy fixtures. This is a sturdy, and functional sheath. It features a generous belt-loop as well as a lanyard loop at the chape, so that it can be tied around the leg for added security.


Engraving: Each blade is engraved on one side with McCURDY, NEPAL, so you know it’s the real deal.
