This kukri knife has a straight, narrow fuller from the grip to the curve of the black, and a very wide, flat notch ("angkhola") behind it. The blade was forged by hand from carbon steel, and has typical cut outs that symbolize the goddess Shiva's trident. It has a full tang, which is riveted to the brass pommel end.
Specs can vary slightly from kukri to kukri.

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
