commonly known as 'the Balance Kukri'; with a perfect center point balance

Specially crafted khukuri to make the weight of the blade and the handle precisely equal so that it can balance upright when stationed in a peak

The special kukri can actually balance and can stand upright/still (horizontally as shown in the picture) on any pointed fix edge. However, surprisingly this special balancing feature has no any special purpose. It is just done to show the maker's extra ordinary skill. The blade of this beautifully shaped kukri is one of the most difficult to craft due to its complicated balancing act. It should be first forged (shaped out), later grinded and then handle fitted in such a way that the weight of the blade and the handle are precisely equal so that it can not only perfectly balance in a center point but also stand upright and not flip (fall).


Blade: 9” bladed with mirror polish finishing. The blade is forged curvy to get the balance point within the blade. The maker pays special attention when grinding the blade (meat removal) so that it balances and stands upright at the same time. The unique highly curved shape of the Balance Khukuri also resembles the aboriginal weapon, ``Boomerang``, however nothing to do with the latter’s exclusive function. It is also a very good functional knife. It makes great displayer. The blade is decorated by pattern on both sides to enhance its beauty.


Handle: Balance kukri has a regular water buffalo horn handle with metal fixtures (brass pommel and brass butt cap). Sometimes the handle is slightly curved to get the balance act going. The horn handle is well polished for beautiful look. It has a rat tail tang fixture. 


Sheath: Has a traditional black leather sheath. The wooden frame inside is wrapped by leather from outside and brass tip and frog (belt loop) completes the sheath. It also has housing for Karda and Chakmak at the throat (insertion). Karda is a small pen knife and Chakmak is an emergency sharpener and mainly used for stropping. 

Originally made in Dharan (East Nepal) but now made at KHHI nepal in Kathmandu.
