The Bushcrafter Kukuri 7 is TOPS' version of the traditional Ghurka knife also named Kukri or Khukuri.- It was designed by Nicholas Fury III who has morde then 30 years experience in Bushcraft and Survival, stating that this is not his 'Hobby' but his 'Way of Life'.-
There is a deeper sweeping belly to the Bushcrafter Kukuri 7 than a normal Khukuri. This allows you to use a shorter blade and still have tremendous chopping power. The belly also helps facilitate it's use to skin animals, whether choking up on the blade with your hand up on the spine, or using a push or draw motion to cape.
The curved nature of this Khukuri design is a natural for slicing, using the blade as a draw knife in push, or pull direction, creating feather sticks with the inner curve of the blade, processing firewood - whether by chopping, or batoning, smashing nuts with the pommel, scraping bark with the back of the knife, etc.
The handle has been designed to be used under harsh conditions, and not injure the hands from repeated use over extended periods of time. There is a bow drill divot on each side of the handle to facilitate this action should you need to make fire by friction in this manner, and a lanyard hole at the end of the pommel. Function, and ergonomics were the key elements here.
