Kukri's best attributes and enormous potential as a weapon and a tool
have been well documented in our DVD's. We’ve made different variations
of the Kukri over the years, some with longer blades, and some with
shorter, but never, until now, have we had a version you could carry in
your pocket as a folder.
Rajah folders, designed by Andrew Demko, are big enough to approximate
the feel and heft a fixed blade Kukri. Their broad, downward curved
blades exhibit the best of a Kukri's characteristics. First, their
unique shape presents their thin, hollow ground edges at just the right
angle so they naturally bite deep instead of bouncing or skidding off.
And secondly their points are thick, wide and sharp enough to pierce
even the toughest targets.
handle has some of the contours of fixed blade Kukri's with the
addition of strategically placed curves and finger grooves. These
features will facilitate 3 grip styles. One very close to the cutting
edge where you can really choke up on the handle for fine or delicate
work. Two – by the middle for ordinary chores. And three near the end
or butt where you will have the most leverage and weight forward
balance for heavy cutting or chopping and where you will receive
maximum reach advantage.
suitable lock that can sustain the incredible impact forces generated
by chopping strokes with a Rajah folder is our new TRI-AD lock.
Designed specifically to take pressure off the smaller, more fragile
interlocking surfaces of a rocker lock and transfer them to a uniquely
positioned stop pin that will absorb and distribute these forces
through the handle frame.
the Rajah as you would any folder, using the clip to attach it to any
reasonably sized pocket or clip it in your waistband. In an emergency
all you have to do is grab it and open it in the conventional manner or
snag its unique thumb plate on the edge of a pocket and snap it open.
The Rajah I is truly a custom quality knife. Its handle frame and
integral bolsters are CNC machined from a 7075 Aluminum billet to
secure the black G-10 handle scales. And it’s built tough enough to
endure countless hours of hard, brutal work.
