A Ceremonial Kukri knife with a hand-carved Dragon on the blade

The major attraction of this kukri is the hand-carved Dragon on its blade. All the forging and making of this Kukri is done by hand by using only conventional/domestic tools. It takes three men one whole day to finish this Kukri. The kukri is later carved by Dragon images on both sides by using only basic tools (you can watch the Dragon Carving video ). The hand carving takes almost 2 days to complete, much longer due to its large size. The craftsmen who belong to the “Newar” community of Kathmandu do the carving as they have ancient ties with carving and making various sculptures.

Although made decorative, is still a fully functional Kukri; long and sharp blade used for sacrificing animals in festivals like “Dashain”, the main festival of Nepalese, which mostly falls in October.

Blade: it has a typical kukri shape profile having a thick spine and resembles the 'BhojPure style'. The 18" long blade is hand-forged and well polished. 

Handle: It has a typical kukri shape handle in Rat Tail version (parowal) made from rosewood. Brass Kanzo (bolster) and Chapri (pommel) are fitted at the two ends of the handle. 

Scabbard: Comes with traditional style (wood covered by buffalo Leather) sheath with a brass tip (chape) in front. A frog is fitted to carry the kukri from waist level. 

Karda Chakmak: Since the Kukri is much large in size even its two small knives (Karda and Chakmak) are larger than normal ones with blade measuring 4-5" approx. The Karda (small knife) is an independent knife itself made from 5160 steel and Rosewood handle with Brass fittings.
