This elongated Sirupate Khukrui has surpassed being a fighting knife and has become a Khukuri short-sword. Like the falcata or kopis swords of antiquity, the leverage gained by its extra length ensures that it is a fearsome chopping and hacking blade.

The differentially heat-tempered blade is crafted from 5160 high carbon steel. The heat treatment has optimized the blade by giving it a hard edge that will not dull or fold easily and a relatively soft spine that will absorb the force and shock of the strike. The hardness of the edge is at 58-60 HRC, the blade body is at 45-46 HRC and the spine is of 22-25 HRC. The blade has been decoratively etched and inlaid with brass on both sides.

The grip is of carved and polished buffalo horn and is surmounted by a brass bolster and pommel cap. The Sirupate Kukri comes with a scabbard crafted from carved pinewood and traditional Nepalese ''Laha'' tree gum glue. It is wrapped in a tight, protective layer of black leather and fitted with a brass chape and an integrated belt loop.

The scabbard has two internal compartments for the traditional ''karda'' small utility knife and the ''chakmak'' sharpening tool. These are constructed from high carbon steel with polished buffalo horn for a grip.


The ‘’Sirupate’’ is named after grass leaves in Nepal that it resembles; the ‘’Siru’’. Blades such as these are used by the Gurkhas in the jungle in manner of machete.
