The Small Silver Kothimoda is named after the length of the blade, it's small, only 8 inches. The beautiful silver contrasts the brilliant coloured velvet underneath. The silver section contains many traditional Nepalese symbols and is carved with intricate precision. Because less silver is used in making this smaller version, the price is more affordable than its larger brother.

The Kukri blade itself is mirror polished, with an equally polished water buffalo handle and is a sharp, usable Kukri. But if you’re buying this item, you are most likely buying it for the beautiful sheath. The Kothimoda makes a fine gift, to show your respect, or as an item to display proudly in your home or office hence nicked as Display Kukri.


A Kothimoda, in strict terms, means a kukri that has a silver scabbard. It is a kukri with a special place and value in Nepalese culture and society. The exclusive silver scabbard with beautiful carvings in it also makes this kukri an excellent gift to express one’s appreciation and gratefulness amongst Nepalese, especially by the Gurkhas. Receiving one of these blades is seen as a great honor in Nepal. The real focal point of this Kukri is the beautiful scabbard. Made entirely by hand, the Kothimoda scabbard was once seen as a symbol of rank and status by kings and generals throughout Nepal’s history. In the 19th century, some were even decorated with precious stones, diamonds, ivory, and even gold.


At Nepalese weddings, the bridegroom wears a Kothimoda tucked into his sash. According to custom, the Kukri will protect him and his family from evil spirits. In modern times, A Kothimoda is often given as a retirement gift to retiring officers in the Brigade of Gurkhas, as a tribute to their years of loyal service. Often these Kothimodas have the insignia of the unit worked into the design of the sheath itself. This is a custom introduced by the Gurkha soldiers themselves and not the British army.
