Blade

A DhanKute khukuri is basically a simple working and decorative tool. The blade is slimmer and lighter than the army khukuris. It comes in both Chainpure and Sirupate type blades. This 10 inches kukri is regarded more as decorative item rather than for its use as domestic tool.

Handle

The handle is made of Indian Rosewood and is made very simple to give a traditional look.

Scabbard

The main attraction of this kukri is its fancy scabbard. The scabbard is made from wood and Nepalese national symbol is overlaid in its front panel. It displays various national monograms made from expensive metallic sheets like Brass or White metal or even Silver sometimes such as king’s crown (Shree-pech), national bird (Danfe), national flower (Laligurans), national fish (Aasla), Gurkha insignia (khukuri cross), sign of a temple (Pashupati chaana), and the holy sword (Trishul).

ENGRAVED DRAGON DETAILS

Dragon:

This is so called because of the dragon carving in the blade. The kukri is beautifully carved with dragons on both sides to show more craftsmanship in the blade; however the dragon carving does not have any significant meaning. A kukri like this is more a decorative piece than a working tool although can be used if needed. Makers particularly the “Newars” of Kathmandu who have ancient ties and involvement into carving and sculpture culture do the “Dragon” carving in the khukuri blade to display their skill and exhibit their excellent art handed down for generations. Dragon design is simply done to comply with the elongated shape of the kukri blade. The elongated shape of the Dragon follows through the panel of the kukri blade and finishes giving a suiting and soothing look to the blade. Dragon does not hold any special meaning, it is just a display of skill of the carver and to make the khukuri a fine work of art as a whole. All carvings are done by hand using only basic tools. It takes about 5-6 hours to get a dragon done in a standard sized blade.
