The shape of this Iraqi Kukri s is very much similar to our other model - the Panawal Angkhola Kukri is mainly used in the countryside of Nepal by farmer as wood cutting and general purpose tool. This is very common agricultural and household implement in Nepal. During war in Iraqi Gurkha used this shape and with gripper handle kukri therefore we named it to Iraqi Freedom Kukri. The blade is made by the process of continue folding and beating so the blade is very strong. 10" blade is made of highly graded carbon steel with balance water temper on the edge so it's very strong. 5"full tang handle is made of "Rose" wood.
