Nepal's Favourite Dhankute Kukri 

The “Dhankute Fancy Kukri” is yet another famous kukri in Nepal that comes from Dhankuta, a small village in eastern Nepal, and hence the name Nepali Dhankute. What sets this piece apart from the rest is its skillfully decorated wooden sheath with various national and traditional symbols and icons displayed in it. Dhankute people are very artistic and well known not only for forging these fine blades but also for exclusive arts and crafts, ornamentation and embellishment etc. This fancy Dhankute kukri is very popular among the youths in the villages of Nepal. They love to carry this crafted piece of art as a symbol of pride and prestige. These wooden sheaths are more durable, adds value and gives finer look compared to the leather ones.

 

Special Decorated Wooden Sheath explained..

The sheath of this kukri is made from carefully selected Indian Rosewood which is well treated before fitting. The maker then first makes the wooden blank according to the size and shape of the kukri. Then the brass works starts. Blacksmith carefully prepare the metal bindings and symbols which are later fixed to the sheath. Then the finished wooden sheath is well polished. Makers mainly mount signs and symbols that represent Nepal or part of Nepal culture and heritage. The images may vary from one sheath to another. The most common ones used are Gurkha insignia (Kukri cross), Crown of the King (Shreepech), national fish (Aasla), national bird (Danfe) and national flower (Laligurans) supported by round plates to symbolize Tika (circle mark). 


The blade comes in typical Sirupate and Chanipure style. The whole set up is basic including the handle. It can be nicely used without any problem however people wish to keep it as a decorative item due to its beautifully crafted sheath. Its fancy so people prefer more for decoration purpose. These are great knives to take back home as a fine memento from Nepal.
