Dragon carved blade adds beauty to Dhankute Kukris like 'Decorative Wooden Sheath' making it a more prized possession..

This kukri has been mainly made for souvenir, gift items and as a display piece. An exquisite hand crafted item that shows the art of true craftsmanship of Dhankuta people (Nepal).

Most of the khukuris in Nepal comes from eastern district and this one is no exception. Dhankute, a small hilly town is engulfed in nature’s beauty and with it has exceptional talented citizens with amazing craftsmanship. People in Dhankuta are renowned for their skills, mostly in weaving and making different kind of household tools.

This Khukuri originates from Dhankuta and was born as a simple working tool however with passing time and changes in lifestyle of people, the kukri also emerged as a gift besides being the household tool, an arm for security and for religious beliefs. Dhankute craftsmen gave this kukri its more valuable touch, it was adorned with wooden sheath with images mounted and to compliment the decorative sheath the blade was carved by dragons on both sides.

The blade is lighter and is made in both Chainpure and Sirupate type blades. The handle is made of Indian rosewood and has a traditional rat tail tang. It can be used for household work however with decorative wooden sheath this is best to be owned as decorative item.

The images in sheath differ from one craftsmen to other however most of the time it comes with with national symbols of Nepal like national flag, bird, animal, flower and symbols that depict Nepal and its culture. Dragon is carved in blade as the shape fits well in the blade but does not have any significant reason. It just suits the knife as both have long shape.

Dhankute Dragon is one of the most famous khukuri in Nepal and holds deep respect for craftsmen from Dhankuta. This Ornate wooden dragon kukri is one of the best selling decorative items in KHHI nepal and is a pride of Dhankuta.
