It is primarily a decorative piece though can be used made in the eastern part of Nepal where all army knives are made. A definite name is given because of its small sized blade that has metallic handle (Brass) and a Dragon carved blade.
Mini Brass Dragon is a fancy and elegant looking kukri thus many put it in shelf to décor ones pride ownership. The brass and dragon combination delivers an outstanding work of art that draws attention and appeals an eye. This prominent and perfect looking kukri knife would enhance the beauty of a space and polish the whole ambient. The khukuri also makes an ideal gift to give away to special person/s on any occasion, on any account.
The kukri is beautifully carved with dragons on both sides to show more craftsmanship in the blade; however the dragon carving does not have any significant meaning. Makers particularly the “Newars” of Kathmandu who have ancient ties and involvement into carving and sculpture culture do the “Dragon” carving in the khukuri blade to display their skill and exhibit their excellent art handed down since generations. Dragon design is simply done to comply with the elongated shape of the kukri blade. The elongated shape of the Dragon follows through the panel of the kukri blade and ends up giving a suiting and soothing look to the blade. All carvings are done by hand using only basic tools. It takes about 5-6 hours to get a dragon done in this particular blade.
Brass is used to make the hilt in order to prevent it from breaking apart even when exposed in the sun for a longer period of time. The metallic handle also prevents the handle from getting scratches and bruises. A fancy and elegant look, a break from traditional look too, is achieved by the brass handle fitted for this khukuri.
These exclusive features of this knife make it a genuine souvenir from Nepal that would boost one’s interior.

We have come across too many companies claming themselves to be genuine manufacturers of kukris which is in fact all untrue and we condemn such activities. We would therefore appeal all our visitors/buyers to be aware of such scamps and be extra cautions when buying online. After all, we want you to get the real things from the real people.
