The Small Silver Kothimoda is named so due to it small profile (8 inches) and belongs to the Kothimoda (silver sheath) family. The silver section contains many traditional Nepalese symbols and is carved with intricate precision done by hand. The beautiful silver also contrasts well against the velvet background and gives a desiring look. The gold plated "Cross Kukri" badge on the other hand gives a dashing look to the overall set up of the knife.

Both, the blade and its horn handle are well polished to compliments the special silver case (sheath). The edge is sharp, same steel, same making process, so its very much usable but its sheath makes it delicate as silver is used. Its best left to display to wow the onlookers.

Kothimoda kukri makes a fine gift. Its a medium to show one's respect, gratitude and gratefulness towards somebody through this articulate material. This tradition also flows well in army and police institutions where the retiring officers are marked with Kothimoda to honor their service and personality.


What is a Kothimoda ??
A KothimoDa or KothimoRa in strict terms means a kukri that comes with a silver sheath. It has a plain simple blade but the sheath is where the value and recognition of the kukri lies. Kothimoda has a special place and value in Nepalese culture and society. Its made by very skilled craftsmen only. It also falls under the expensive range so this makes it rare and high end item.
