A Ceremonial kukri with hand-carved Dragon blade; Displayer yet Dangerous

The blade on this Kukri is 18" long and its shaped resembles the 'BhojPure style' and includes two accompanying knives. 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. The handles of all three knives are made from Rosewood with Brass fittings. The scabbard is wood covered by buffalo Leather having a brass tip (chape). 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 in our YouTube channel). 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.

This Kukri although decorative, is still a fully functional Kukri. It is a large type of kukri 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 thick spine. The blade is hand forged and well polished.
Handle: It has a typical kukri shape handle in Rat Tail version (parowal). Brass Kanzo (bolster) and Chapri (pommel) are fitted at the two ends of the handle.
Scabbard: Comes with traditionally leather sheath with brass tip in front. A frog is fitted to carry the kukri from waist level.
