The 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.
The 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. The only 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 II 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.
