I purchase my products directly from the manufacturer which is why my prices are so great. Usually I have to buy in large quantities but for this knife/machete I was able to persuade them to let me have a “sample” quantity. I don’t have many so if you like it go for it!!

Firstly this is not a “dagger” or a “throwing knife” as described in NZ legislation.You can’t throw it and it only has one cutting edge.

What it is is a very nice khukri style knife.  The label “Flying Dagger” has been borrowed from the film “House of Flying Daggers”.  However films can make anything happen – I doubt anyone could throw this knife.  It would probably come back like a boomerang!!

Overall length: 13 inches (33cm)

Blade:  7.5 inches (19cm) by 1.5 inch (4cm) at the widest and very thick for this size knife at 5.15mm. 420 surgical Stainless Steel that is shaped like a traditional Khukri and hollow ground for edge sharpness and sharpening. Blade is coated black.

Handle:  Elegant moulded black plastic with stainless hilt and guard.  Looks and feels good.

Tang:  full tang with handle moulded around.

Sheath.  Very nice leather sheath – glossy black with a white logo stamped onto it.  Retaining strap and belt loop.

What makes these knives superb is the steel used. Many knives are made with inferior grades of stainless steel. “Stainless” is a large group of steel alloys – many entirely unsuitable for blade use.

Grade 420 is capable of attaining good hardness, sharpness and wear resistance of all the stainless alloys. Its very high carbon content is responsible for these characteristics along with superior heat treatment. Of course this is also more expensive – you get what you pay for.

A nice knife and well made and it looks striking.
