Dhankute Wooden Dragon

Ancient village in the east, Dhankuta, makes special scabbard depicting national symbols and later dragon carved in Kathmandu for more beautification...

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.

Khukuri: Dhankuta is a small village located in the eastern part of Nepal and this type of khukuri is mostly made in this village. The name of the khukuri “DhanKute” is given after its village name where it originated centuries ago. Dhankute people specialized in many ornamented and decorative displayers amongst which the DhanKute khukuri is one of their prized and prestigious establishments.

A DhanKute khukuri is basically a simple working and decorative knife but with a fancy scabbard that has Nepalese national symbols overlaid on its front panel. The skilled craftsmen craft special scabbard out of buffalo horn and India rosewood for the kukri blade and 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), the holy sword (Trishul) etc. The basic objective is to compose the khukuri to represent Nepal and her persona. The glory, sovereignty, character, culture and people of Nepal are captured in this unique work of art by the Dhankutes.

Commoners mostly use it as a decorative tool because of its elegant and delicate look therefore it is crafted more as a “Decorative” piece. The blade is slimmer and lighter than the army types. It comes in both, Chainpure and Sirupate type blades. DhanKutes are typical working knives too but since they are made for display purpose and demands to be displayed to decorate a space, DhanKutes are mostly kept in shelf or stands.

(Please be notified that national symbols mentioned above or depicted in the photo may differ with some orders.)
