Carved/Engraved Dragon: What is it ??

Khukuri with dragon carving in the blade is called 'Dragon Carved Kukri' or 'Dragon Khukuri'. It 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 in khukuri or even in Nepali culture or society. 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.

The 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.

The blade is one of the most common blades of Nepal. The 8inch long blade is made of 5160 high carbon steel and has a high demand for outdoor activities. The blade is hand-carved/engraved with dragon to give a classic look. The handle of this traditional kukri is made of Indian Rosewood having well polish finishing. It is a regular handle, strong and sturdy yet with beautiful looks. The normal black leather (Water buffalo hide) scabbard is fixed with a brass tip and has two small accompanying knives; the Karda (small knife) and Chakmak (sharpener).

 

How this Mini Sized Dragon Carved Kukri fascinated the buyers and became popular in the local kukri market?

 Made as a souvenir/gift kukri, its fully functional blade helps in daily chores of life doing small cutting tasks indoor and outdoor. Targeted mainly for the tourist visiting Nepal, it was self-defense, safety, and survival tool while they traveled through the rugged terrains of Nepal, and when they were back again it was the same for them, if not in use just they could just display it. This two-way use made it a trending product to buy Kathamndu and it has never seen back again.
