BhojPure ; The famous and iconic khukuri of Nepal

Bhojpure khukuri is the most famous khukuri of Nepal. Bhojpur is a village in far eastern Nepal where daily household work and their farming is done by locally produced Kukri. According to the work they need to do, the villagers made a number of kukris, among them the name of the village itself “the BhojPure” is the prototype introduced about a century ago is the most famous of all, hence the nickname 'ICONIC'

Original century-old kukri prototype

Blade: The blade is 10inch long with polished finishing. The blade is fatter and heavier than standard army knives and is also made thicker to ease and quicken the cutting action. Its design and size is the same as the original and has no modern modifications done. However, to meet the standard of its counterparts the finishing of the blade is done much better than the older version

Handle: The handle of this kukri is like that of the traditional parawal kukri’s where a rat-tail tang coming from the blade goes through the rosewood handle for this kukri and comes out of another end which makes the tang completely hidden. Here the handle is glued to the tang with epoxy and wood dust. The upper part of the handle is covered with brass bolster and the bottom part is covered with thick brass pommel keeping the handle intact and strong. While the exterior has rings in the middle section of the handle which provides extra grip.

Sheath: It has a normal black leather scabbard made from buffalo leather. The interior has wood pieces shaped like the blade to provide strength to the scabbard. Near the mouth, a frog loop is attached where belts can go thorough and the scabbard can be carried around. Lastly, the tip is covered with brass chape.

Size of blade: 10 inch approx.
Materials: Water buffalo leather scabbard, rosewood handle, 2 x small knives
Origin: Bhojpur, Eastern Nepal
