Delta lanyard hole
apart from steel and process, this khukuri isn't a huge departure from the khukuris of old. I expect and hope that it will be a well rounded tool, useful for a number of purposes- from ceremonial animal decapitation, to spreading jam on toast, to building a shelter in the woods. At 5/16" thick, it will be a challenge to make it light handling- that's what I'm trying to wrap my head around now. I think I'll start with the primary bevel and get that where it needs to be, then start removing material elsewhere in order to dial in the balance and feel. Then it's on to proto #2. So far I'm very happy with the dimensions, the handle shape, and the profile in general.
