Hand-forged and Handmade Nepali Khukuri 

An authentic and original version of the local Nepali kukri is made by Khukuri House's (KHHI) master craftsman, Mr. Chakra Bk and first released on 28th Dec 2012.  The name of this khukuri is complete to define an explain all of its features. This is a khukuri that is completely made by hand and basic tools; a typical Nepali kukri in the villages used for day to day work is mostly of the same type and made in a similar manner. Since it is made in a typical way; like a village khukuri its named as 'Original Nepali Khukuri'. The blade, handle and sheath all are made by hand. The kukri comes completely raw and unpolished like a traditional Nepali khukuri. 

The title Bhaktapur

Back in 2012, in Bhaktapur, Mr BK started making these handmade blades for KHHI, the khukri was very famous in short time popularly as 'Bhaktapure Khukuri'; although it has no historic or any background connection between Bhaktapur (historic touristic hub) and this khukuri. We have nicknamed this khukuri 'Bhaktapur' to let people know what really is Bhaktapur.

The making process (100% handmade)

A true piece of handcrafted khukuri to showcase the craftsmanship from a born-talented craftsman(kami). Here we have tried to explain the hard work the bare hands; how they can convert a piece of steel into a masterpiece. 

Hand forged/finished Blade: The blade is 10inch long with raw finishing. The shape of the blade resembles the classic kukris where the blade is forged wider at the head/upper portion than the lower section. This is done for better swinging capability and to produce immense force when used. For the final finishing, flat and round files is used to get the job done and no grinders. Even the final quality test is achieved by files (so no machine is used at all - right from the start till the very end) making it the authentic Nepalese handmade blade.

Rosewood Handle: The handle is same of the original classic parawal kukris where the rat-tail tang goes through the handle and remains hidden. In the exterior part of the handle, the middle section has rings for extra grip. This handle is further secured by metal bolster at the top and metal pommel at the bottom. It’s made from the Indian Rosewood.

Scabbard: The scabbard is made from normal black leather of water buffalo. The interior has wooden pieces shaped like the blade to provide strength to the scabbard. While the top section features a frog loop for the scabbard to be carried around. The sheath is made more strong with steel fixtures.

Accompanying Traditional Knives: Karda and Chakmak are included along with the ‘Bhaktapur’ khukuri.
