the Service Panawal (Pro) with Power Hammer handle
customized version of the Gurkha Service Kukri with an exclusive power hammer in panawal handle type; forged for the professionals
As always we take pride in creating or customizing the kukri to give our buyers the best possible functional version of what they need. Following the same, here we have modified the Official Gurkha Service Kukri adding the power hammer in the pommel of the panawal handle. This kukri is targeted for rough use for the professionals hence the nicknamed PRO.
The blade shape and size is exactly the same as the officially issued service kukri of the Gurkhas. No changes have been made. The blade is unpolished, Semi convex grinded on the edge.
The handle as explained above has a full flat tang (panawal), tapered towards the pommel to balance the weight of the khukuri. The two rivets joins and makes the handle more stronger. Traditional butt cap) chapri is replaced by the power hammer which is the major feature attraction and feature of this kukri.
here we have changed the handle material to Micarta to make sure the handle doesn't shrink over time, as the horn does.
The sheath is a typical style kukri sheath with NO karda chakmak included. This is done intentionally to reduce the weight as the power hammer increases the overall weight of the kukri. Strap button is attached to the belt loop for additional safety to avoid the wobbling of the blade which sometimes drops out the blade from the sheath as well.
Use and Feel::
The kukri is on the little heavier side due to the power hammer in the handle. This makes the kukri a power pack performer as you don't have to worry about the rat tail tang and the fixtures that becomes loose chopping after hard materials for a long time.
The heavy panawal power hammer handle puts the impact in the back of the blade which make the hard cutting/chopping task more easier as it applies proper force on the belly almost along the peak of the blade.
Hence, the kukri is made for free rough use, more for professional tasks rather than just showing off tasks.
