The Browning® Wihongi Signature Series of edged weapons are decorated by Jared Wihongi in Maori tradition to honor the warrior spirit that lives in all of us. The Signature Kukri is designed after the traditional knife carried by the Nepalese Gurkha regiments that functioned both as a utility survival tool and as a close quarters combat weapon. The flat-ground blade is made of 8Cr14MoV stainless steel, tested at a Rockwell hardness of 56-58. The Kukri blade design excels at chopping, though the deep belly also slices well. The handle provides a positive grip with G-10 scales attached to a full tang; and a stainless steel bolster/hand guard aids in keeping the hand in place during hard work. The Wihongi Signature Kukri Knife comes with a Kydek™ belt sheath, and a lanyard eyelet.
