18 inch Kukri mainly used for Religious & Sacrificial purpose in Nepal; a heavy-duty and lethal knife at the same time... sharp and scary mammoth at offering @ Khukuri House...

A special and religious kukri that has been contributing to some of the rituals of Hinduism since generations. One of the festivals in Nepal celebrates the religious ceremony of beheading domestic animals as an offering to the goddess “Durgamata” on the 9th day during “Dashain” festival. This is where the 18” kukri comes into play, beheads the animal at one go, very clean shot. The ritual is called “BALI Dinu”, which means “to sacrifice” and hence the name as Sacrificial. Besides its ceremonial usage, it is also a heavy duty chopping kukri like a machete. It can also be a deadly weapon of choice for combative purposes and a hardcore battalion knife.

an antique Maar kukri from 19th centuryBlade: The blade is 18 inch in length and has unpolished (matt) finishing. This blade is typical shaped having broad panel made from HC (high carbon) steel 5160 (best steel for forging large knives like this). Its design is similar to the “Bhojpure” kukri in which the blade is fat, thick, and heavy. It has a very sharp, durable, and rigid edge making chopping and cutting actions easier and more effective.

Handle: It has a traditional wooden handle (rosewood) having a stick tang fixture (parowal). It has about 6.5" long handle, good enough to hold by both hands. The handle is strong and provides a sturdy grip to execute big acts.

Sheath: The sheath is made of black buffalo hide with brass chape fitted at the tip. It carries two small pockets at the back to house the utility knives, Karda and Chakmak. Both have about 4-5" blade and around 4" handle. The Karda, small knife, can be used as an independent knife.


A little background...
18 inch Religious Kukri (Sacrificial) is actually a modern version of the historic kukris heavily used by Gorkhas in their unification campaigns and number of wars against the British in the 18th and 19th centuries  The knife was a primary weapon of soldiers in the battle that helped them pave the way to glorious victories. Such huge kukris were heavily made for military purpose and also to perform various festival rituals. This pave the way for the khukuri to a successful journey from the back till now.
