Nepal's Favourite Dhankute Kukri 

Dhankute is yet another famous kukri in Nepal that comes from Dhankuta, a small village in eastern Nepal, and hence the name of kukri Dhankute. What sets this kukri apart from the rest is its decorated wooden sheath and wooden handle. Dhankute people are very artistic and well known not only for forging the fine blades but for engraving and ornamentation. 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 less damageable (scratch proof) compared to the leather ones in the bush and forest.

Special Decorated Wooden Sheath

The sheath of this Khukuri is made from carved Indian Rosewood. Blacksmiths carefully carve the sheath with images that represent Nepal or is important to Nepal. The images vary from one sheath to another. Among the varied images, Gurkha insignia (crossed Khukuris), Crown of the King, the national fish, the Aasi, The national bird, the Danfe, A symbol of a temple (known as Pashupati Chaana)- The national flower, the Laligurans is often seen.

The blade comes in a common shape like that of Sirupate and Chanipure styles. The blade can be used however people wish to keep Dhankute as a decorative item due to its beautifully carved sheaths hence the name fancy kukri.
