Nepalese Kukri with Horn Handle – 29cm Blade
Nepalese kukri with horn handle complete with its Chakmak and Karda and leather belt sheath
Out of stock
This traditional Nepalese kukri includes a horn handle and a patterned blade made from stainless steel.
As the original kukri's would have had, this model includes a leather sheath, small knife and steel and leather sheath. The sheath holds two smaller blades - a Chakmak and a Karda. The Chakmak is an unsharpened tool used to quickly sharpen the kukri blade whilst out in the field. The Karda is a small, sharpened blade that can be used for small cutting tasks that are too small for the kukri itself.
As with more traditional kukri blades, this one has a notch at the base of the blade. There are both practical and ceremonial reasons for this. When cutting, this notch makes sap or liquid drop off the blade rather than running onto the handle, in turn, the users hand and arm. The second reason for this notch that it represents a cows foot or the teats of a cow. This is used as a reminder of the importance of cows in Hinduism.
