The best token to a retiring soldier; 'Ceremonial Kothimora Khukuri (Army Memento)'

Kothimora is a very special kukri due to its sheath made from pure silver filigree, and various color of velvet is used as background to represent the retiring army officer's regimental color. It is also worn on special occasion like wedding ceremony by the bridegroom attired in typical Nepali national dress (Daura Suruwal). Kothimora is also a mode of reflecting one's rank, status and authority since many generations. It is an exquisite display of local craftsmanship objected for decoration and to beautify an ambient. Mainly used for ceremonies and given as gifts to mark one’s respect, appreciation and to honor an event, the Kothimora is an historic piece with material value and more importantly sentimental value. While the khukuri is also a perfectly working blade when put in a normal leather sheath.

In Gurkha regiments there is a famous tradition of giving this khukuri as gift to the departing soldier to mark his deed, contribution and achievement as a memento from his colleagues. This army tradition/customary has been going on for decades which continues till today. Its one special event which cannot be completed without a Kothimora Khukuri. This Kothimora khukuri is named after the same purpose hence the name Army Memento. The beautiful silver contrasts the brilliant velvet underneath. The silver section contains many traditional Nepalese symbols and is carved with intricate precision. 

The Kukri blade itself is mirror polished with an equally polished water buffalo handle and is a sharp, usable Kukri. But if you’re buying this item, you are most likely buying it for the beautiful sheath so best to display. As you know by now that Kothimoras make a fine gift, to show respect and also is an item to display proudly in your home or office. Highly recommended for your someone special ..
