This old Hanshee (above) via Gurkha Antiques we used for inspiration for the two versions of the Purano Dal Kukri (below).

Heritage Knives take on the Hanshee was not to replicate, but to inspire us and the work we do, to live up to the spirit of the original. In the making of the Purano Dal several other Hanshee Kukri´s were used as a source of inspiration and study.
