the historic and celebrated blades that are the pride of nation 

This kukri has great sentimental and patriotic meaning to the people of Nepal. We named this Kukri 'National Tribute' as a tribute to the country of Nepal and to honour the more than 10000 victims of the terrible 2015 earthquakes. We also named this Kukri after the strength of the Nepalese people during the aftermath of the disasters and the unlawful border blockade by the Indian government, which set the country back economically and socially during this most difficult time. 

This kukri is a symbol that should always remind us of the dreadful year 2015 and how we endured, fought, and rose above the incident, and how we came out as a better, bigger and stronger nation. It represents the passionate love for our country, the unwavering respect for our fellow men, our resolute and optimistic high spirit and attitude, a desire and ability for prosperity, and our strength and honour. Above all, it represents believing in yourself and doing it.

When “All is lost, hope remains. When Night falls, dawn breaks. - we as a country can still rise from the rubble, Triumph even from the Dust and Shine in the darkest night. Be it a natural disaster or a man-made tragedy. Just like our brave ancestors, our glorious history is our witness; we fall, we rise, we soar again. We may be weakened yet we prevail, and this is what the iconic “National Tribute 2015 (Native Khukuri)” represents. Its motive is to provoke the national feelings and remind us how vital it is to be united, focused, resilient and vigilant as one country.

Our deepest thoughts and condolences go to all who have lost those near and dear to them in the disaster, and our faith in prayers for those who were made to face an untimely death. KHHI would also like to take this opportunity to thank the international communities for their continuous support and generosity. 


Features:

The Kukri: is inspired from the classic version with a broader, more curved and lighter blade. The blade is hand forged with great skill and craftsmanship. With accordance to its grand name, the historic and celebrated blades that are the pride of nation have been chosen for this model. Much like it’s classic counterparts, the blade is original, gentle, very handy, light and agile and has a full flat tang wooden handle with metal fixtures (bolster +butt). The Native Khukuri is the reproduced version of some of the very old models from 19th century. It is made to be used, so will not disappoint even a harsh user and an extreme survivalist. The kukri’s blade and handle are both unpolished.


Dap(Sheath):  The KH’s Sheath is a unique, appealing and powerful aspect of this kukri. Special care, attention, and skill have been put into the sheath. KHHI, considering its grand name and noble purpose, has tried to make the sheath look as authentically as simple as possible yet have a class of its own. A special binding “V” shaped white metal chape is fixed in its tip for strength, style and striking look which is something not done for any other knives made by KHHI. The unique chape gives an extraordinary and classic look and also adds status to the kukri. Likewise, the frog is the best part of the sheath and represents the national flag and so emphasizes nationalism. Nepal’s unique triangular flag with Sun and Moon is designed in the frog as clearly seen in the photos. The frog in the shape and style of the national flag adds value to the kukri and signifies the patriotic feelings and spirit of fellowship. Similarly, the crossed kukri badge just below the frog is an iconic symbol that has always been a part of Nepal and its culture for generations. They symbolize power, status, culture, devotion, and nationalism. The flared “V” tip, flagship frog, and the famous crossed kukri badge all gives this khukri a royal look that represents the undying love for our country and emphasizes respect to fellow citizen and zeal to do something great.
