rare kukri with expertly decorated sheath, and unique deer antler handle...

As the nickname, Dhankuta enunciates this kukri belongs to Dhankute Family, kukri that originated from small district of Dhankuta, eastern Nepal. This ornamental kukri is rare due to its handle which is made out of white deer’s horn, which is very rare to find. KHHI makes sure that the deer horn is of dead deer and is auctioned for sale through forest department or concerned authorities. 

Another exclusive handle replaces the deer horn handle if not found, it is replaced by the horn of white buffalo which is equally difficult to find but not as rare as deer horn. The horn of white buffalo also makes the kukri equally special and beautiful. 

The sheath of this kukri is another art that shows the craftsmanship of the Dhankute makers. The sheath is made out of buffalo horn and to make a sheath with this horn is quite a task, it takes lot of time and expertise to adorn the Nepalese symbol to the sheath. The symbols may vary in different sheaths but usually the flag, national bird, Mount Everest etc is depicted. It is done at the front panel ti make it more visible while displaying. Another explicit work in this kukri is sometimes the sheath is so white and made illusive that the blade is seen inside which cannot be seen in other kukris.

This rare ornamental kukri comes in both chainpure and Sirupate type blades. The blade is thinner and lighter than army Khukuri. Since the horn is difficult to find the size of the blade depends on the size of horn available at the time of making. Dhankute kukris are actually a working kukri but due to its expensive handle and the sheath this particular kukri is now more a decorative kukri, graceful and elegant and real showcase at your shelf or wall. 

Note:

  • As with the photos, the symbols that appear on the scabbard may differ.
  • This Kukri comes with a complimentary (free) wooden stand.
