Traditional Kothomira & Use of White Silver in Scabbard

A Kothimora is a Kukri with a silver scabbard. The real focal point of this Kukri is the beautiful scabbard made entirely by hand. In the 19th century, some were even decorated with precious stones, diamonds, ivory, and even gold.

Khukuri House Kothimora's contain no white metal, ours are made from 100% pure silver. White is a symbol of peace and love. It’s used to express friendship and loyalty to anyone presented.

Making a Kothimora throughout Nepal’s history was to show the rank and status of the Kings, Generals and high ranking people in the Kingdom. Receiving one of these blades is seen as a great honour in Nepal. There is no evidence when and where Kothimora were initially originated and made, but in these modern days are made mostly in Dharan, Eastern Nepal.

Kothimora in Nepali Culture >>

Kothimora kukri has a special place and value in Nepalese culture and society. At Nepalese weddings, the bridegroom wears a Kothimora tucked into his sash. According to custom, the Kukri will protect him and his family from evil spirits.


Gurkhas & Kothimora

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. In modern times, a Kothimora 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 Kothimoras have the insignia of the unit worked into the design of the sheath itself. This is a custom introduced by the Gurkha soldiers themselves not the British army.


Making of this White Kothimora >>

Scabbard is the major attraction of this kukri made with rosewood covered with whote rexin and futher decorated with silver framer on the outer layer. This particular Kothimora is named after the overall colour of the kukri. The beautiful silver is a contrast to the white rexin (a synthetic artificial washable leather substitute) underneath. This Rexin is easy to clean and maintain, meaning the Kothimora will look brilliant for years to come. The silver section contains many traditional Nepalese symbols and is carved with intricate precision.

The 10 inch long kukri blade itself is mirror polished, with a matching white Indian rosewood 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 two small knives Karda & Chakmak also comes along with the khukuri.

Use/Purpose of White Kothimora

The Kothimora makes a fine gift, to show your respect, or as an item to display proudly in your home or office. Show your deep longing for peace, harmony, and friendship with this beautiful Kukri. You can also use this as a regular functional kukri for domestic indoor or outdoor tasks. Kothimora is genuine working kukri with a fancy scabbard.
