a rare piece due to its rare materials used (white horn and antler);  an excellent piece of craftsmanship...

As the nickname, Dhankuta enunciates this kukri belonging to Dhankute family, a kukri that originated in small district of Dhankuta, eastern Nepal. This ornamental kukri is rare due to its handle which is made out of deer’s horn, and sheath which is white transparent buffalo horn; both very rare to find at least in Nepal's context. KHHI makes the deer horn of dead deers only which are auctioned for sale through forest department or concerned authorities.

the Sheath of this kukri is another art that showcases the craftsmanship of the Dhankute makers. It is made out of unique white buffalo horn which are sometimes so transparent that you can actually see the blade from outside when its tucked in. The sheath making is quite a task that takes a lot of time, patience and expertise and which is something the Dhankute's makers have it since generations. Various national symbols and iconic figures are mounted on the top panel of the sheath to represent the country and its glory. Please be aware that the decorations may vary in different sheaths but in most cases national symbols are displayed. 

the Handle is the major aspect of the knife as it makes it very rare and exclusive. The original deer horn (antler) used gives extraordinary look that differentiates it from the rest. Sometimes the antler is shaped out in typical kukri handle to give the iconic khukuri shape.

the Blade of this "Rare Ornamental Dhankute Kukri" comes in both Chainpure and Sirupate type. The blade is thinner and lighter than army Khukuri. Since the rare horn is difficult to find the size of the blade depends on the size of horn available at the time of making. This Dhankute kukri is actually a working knife but due to its expensive handle and sheath this particular kukri is more a decorative piece - graceful and elegant and real showcase at your shelf or wall. 


  • The symbols/figures displayed in the sheath may differ
  • The deer handle may come in natural shape or in typical khukuri shape
  • This kukri comes with a complimentary (free) wooden stand (Price includes)
