Sorry, this item sold. Have PossumCreekKnifework make something just for you, or try these other items:
The design on the handle is a depiction of cave art found in the Tito Bustillo Cave in Arana, Spain. It is of a woman gathering honey from a cliffside using a rope ladder while bees buzz all around her. The art dates back to 7000 BC and is the oldest known depiction of humans interacting with bees. I photographed the knife sitting on top of some frames from the more modern Langstroth hives we use here on the farm. I'm certainly glad I do not have to scale cliffs on a rickety rope ladder anymore.
With a blade length of 12" and an overall length of 17", this kukri is a fine all around blade to have on your homestead. The handle is made from Mesquite gathered from a nearby ranch here in Texas and is bolted to the full tang with stainless steel pins for added strength. The blade itself is 440A stainless steel.
NOTE: This knife is being sold at a discount due to a slight warp in the wood which pulls the handle away from the tang of the knife in the very center. This does not impair the strength or durability of the handle and is only slightly noticable. If upon receiving the knife the buyer is unhappy with it then I will refund the purchase price upon the return of the knife.
