Engraved Dragon: What to know?

Khukuri with dragon carving in the blade is known as Dragon Carved Kukri or Dragon Khukuri. The kukri is beautifully carved with dragons on both sides to show more craftsmanship in the blade; however, the dragon carving does not have any significant meaning. A kukri like this is more a decorative piece than a working tool although can be used if needed. Makers particularly the “Newars” of Kathmandu who have ancient ties and involvement into carving and sculpture culture do the “Dragon” carving in the kukri blade to display their skill and exhibit their excellent art handed down for generations.

Dragon design is simply done to comply with the elongated shape of the kukri blade. The elongated shape of the Dragon follows through the panel of the kukri blade and finishes giving a suiting and soothing look to the blade. Dragon does not hold any special meaning, it is just a display of skill of the carver and to make the kukri a fine work of art as a whole. All carvings are done by hand using only basic tools. It takes about 5-6 hours to get a dragon done in a standard sized blade.

 

Blade: Mini Jungle is one of the most common knives in Nepal and is in high demand as trekking and outdoor utility knife. This 8 inches long kukri is dragon carved which can be used as decorative and also as a utility knife. Mini Dragon will make very good gifts and a classic souvenir to take back home from Nepal.

Handle: The handle of this classic kukri is made of Indian Rosewood with high polish finishing. It is a regular handle, strong and sturdy yet beautiful looks.

Scabbard: The black normal Water buffalo hide leather scabbard is secured with brass tip and has two small accompanying knives; the Karda (small knife) and Chakmak (sharpener).
