KAMI'S SPECIAL is an outstanding kukri forged by KHHI’s master craftsman released by KHHI on 30th July 2014. This kukri was solely released to fill the vacuum of traditional and classic version kukris. ‘TYPICAL’ maintains the authenticity of the classic kukris with its design and performs diligently like the modern kukris with its easy balance and cutting power.

who/what is Kami?

Kami is an expert kukri maker [(born kukri maker, mainly called Bishwakarma (BK)] who has years of knowledge and experience and devoted himself to this profession. He has this inborn quality inherited from their fathers and beyond and its said that "making kukri runs in their blood”. Kukri making has been a caste profession for generations for them. Kamis are considered to be from the lower caste system in Nepalese communities.

The Kamis Composition​

Blade: The blade is polished and is 13inch long. 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. A beautiful pattern is carved in the upper spine of the blade as part of decoration.

Handle: Being the classic kukri the handle is like that of original parawal kukris where the rat-tail tang goes through the rosewood handle and remains hidden. The bottom of the handle also features a lanyard hole for strings to go through and prevent dropping of kukri away from the hand. This handle is further secured by brass bolster at the top and brass pommel at the bottom.

Scabbard: The scabbard is made from high quality refined black leather. Special pattern has been made on the scabbard to give it a classic and beautiful look. The interior has wooden pieces shaped like the blade to provide strength to the scabbard. While the exterior at the top section has two buttons with thread attached to tighten the scabbard. It also features a frog loop for the scabbard to be carried around and also two small pouch to carry karda + chakmak.


IMP NOTICE::
Unlike as shown in the photos above, due to extreme short supply of special treated leather now the “Kami Special” kukri comes with a Normal Black leather sheath and the price has been revised accordingly
