18inch Religious Kukri (Sacrificial)

 

The Mightiest kukri that has been contributing to some of the rituals of Hinduism ever since the man knew this kukri. One of the ritual and the tradition in Nepal celebrates the religious ceremony of beheading domestic animals as an offering to the goddess “Durgamata” during the main Nepalese festival, “Dashain”. This is where the 18” kukri is used, where it beheads the goat at one go, clean shot.

The day of beheading is termed as “BALI” which means “to sacrifice” and hence the name of the Kukri; Sacrificial. Furthermore, 18” kukri is used during other days where people needs to behead domestic animal for either religious purpose and or to satisfy human craving for meat.


Blade: The blade is unpolished and 18 inch in length. This Parawal type handle is made of HC-Steel 5610 which is the most preferable material for making blades. Its design is similar to the “Bhojpure” kukri where the blade is fat, thick and heavy. It has a razor sharp edge, making chopping and cutting actions easier.


Handle: The handle has traditional look which is made of rosewood. It is 6” in length and large enough to be held with 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 fiited at the tip. It carries small pockets as housing of two small utility knives Karda and Chakmak.
