PARSHURAM SPL- CLASSIC Khukuri
For those people who love the traditional and iconic design over the modern ones and for those who seek for effective, high mobility and a persistent khukuri knife..
The man himself- Mr. Parshuram BK::
Born in 1967 in a remote Far East village in Khotang, Diktel, Nepal, Mr. Parshuram BK studied till class 6 in a local village govt. school but soon had to quit his studies to work to help his father financially in order to support his very big family. The only thing he could possibly do then in such a tender age was to work alongside his father to make khukuri since it came from within (instinct) for him as this was something his decedents have been doing for generations. It was in his blood so to speak. Since then there was no looking back. Now at the age of 47, Mr. BK still continues to make khukuri. In such a long career of his as a khukuri maker and a master craftsman Mr. BK has made number of exceptional khukuris of all type and designs but his specialty is the traditional and classic version. Mr. BK still has the strength (does the beating and hammering himself) and the determination to carry on making high quality kukris for many more years to come. He says he would like to continue the profession until the moment his hands and mind are too old to carry any hammer. It is such an honor to work with such a legend. I, the writer, (Saroj Lama Tamang, MD and founder of KHHI) also find it worthwhile to mention that at one time Mr. Parshuram also made handmade traditional pump guns for various individuals purposed for hunting and self defense until it was too risky and officially banned in his small village.
He is survived by his wife, seven children and four grand children and now temporary lives in Saatdobata, Patan since he joined KHHI in Jan 2014. After this kukri is sold, part of the amount will be bestowed to Mr. Parshuram BK for his outstanding and priceless contribution to enduring and uplifting this amazing, commendable and unique tradition.
