Nepal Police and its Khukuri (Prahari) in brief >>

Nepal Police is an integral security force of national security. The organization is relatively new yet in this short period has proven to be the backbone of the country. It has been playing a vital role in providing security, containing crime and in the overall development of the nation. Even the Nepal Police is issued with a service khukuri like any other national security force of the country. The new in-takes get an official khukuri once the training is completed which here is addressed as the "Nepal Police Issue Khukuri (Prahari)" khukuri. This knife is retained throughout the subordinate-class career and regularly inspected by senior officers. It is a prize possession and honor to the jawan to carry the khukuri and its pride. It is also a reminder of his loyal and long service to the country and its people after retirement. It is one of the famous knives because of its close association with the force. Nepal Police has its own particular type of khukuri that is bit different than the army version.


Blade: The blade measures 9 inches and falls under the fatty version and thus somewhat heavier. It is bit more curved and has a robust look. The feature of the blade is traditional having a single fuller (khol) and a typical notch.

Handle: The handle is made from Indian rosewood in typical khukuri handle format. It measures around 4.5" and has a thick brass plate fixtures. The handle is bit broader due to the follow through of the broad blade. The long handle makes it easy and comfortable to handle(use). 

Sheath: The sheath is simple/traditional having 2 small knives at the back. Like it's army counterpart it comes with 1 x KARDA (small knife) and 1 x CHAKMAK (sharpener). All handles come in wood to give a matching overall look. A brass tip and belt frog are fitted to the sheath.

Prior to 1864 AD the Police institution dates back to the ancient times as does the history and language of Nepal. During the “Rana” Regime (1864-1951 AD) the Police Organization was conceived and gradual progression took place towards systemizing and modernizing policing. During the period 1951 till 1990 different major developments took place in the national police department particularly after the down fall of the Rana regime. The Police Head Quarters was established in 1952 in Kathmandu, Mr. Toran Shamsher J.B.Rana became the first Inspector General of Police, the Police Act came into effect in 1956, the Police Regulation came into effect in 1959, the establishment of the Central Police Training Centre came in 1963, Police personnel started getting deployed in UN Mission from 1991 and other central developments took place. Nepal police like any other police force in a country is primarily assigned and designed for public security, safety, safe-guarding, prosecuting, rescuing and other various policing activities executed competently with dignity, pride, courage.

Currently, the head of the Nepal Police is IGP Mr. Sarbendra Khanal (26th IGP since 12 April 2018 till date) by the decision of the Council of Ministers of the Government of Nepal.
