This elaborate Khukuri crafted by Ex Gurkha Khukuri House has a blade of 5160 high carbon steel that has been etched on both sides. The grip is of hand carved rosewood and it is fitted with plates of brass and steel on a single side. Its bolster is of brass.

The scabbard is crafted in the traditional manner from carved rosewood and ‘’Laha’’ tree gum glue. It is overlaid with black leather and elaborated with brass plating and Nepalese brass coins. It has an integrated belt loop of black leather


Kukris usually have a notch in the base of the blade; its purpose is debated. A practical reason asserted by some is that the notch makes blood or tree sap drip off the blade at that point. A symbolic reason says that it may represent a cow’s foot - a reminder of the sacred position of the cow in Hinduism. Approximately 81% of Nepal practice Hinduism.

Please Note: The decorative elements on this Khukuri may vary because they are handcrafted. The blade etchings may vary in design. The stamped brass designs may vary and the type of brass emblems and copper coins may vary, as well as the use of copper plates for decoration. An example of the potential variation is shown in the last photo which shows two of the Kukris together for comparison.
