I, as the MD of this company and my entire staff felt the importance of sharing this complicated and unexpected situation to all our valued customers that has arisen at KHHI so that all customers are well aware of the current situation
Kothimora typically was known as “Kothi-Moda”, which in Nepalese literature means molding in and around the chape portion of the scabbard; Kothi - Chape, Moda - to Mould.
Kothimora in strict khukuri term means khukuri knife having silver scabbard. It is a khukuri that has a special place and value in Nepalese culture and society. The exclusive silver scabbard with beautiful carvings in it also makes this khukuri a first choice gift to express one’s appreciation and gratefulness amongst Nepalese especially the Gurkhas (Nepalese in Army).
This particular Kothimora khukuri is only 4 inch long (blade) and thus the name. Its “Paper Knife” title defines its ability to cut paper and sort. It is the replica of a standard sized Kothimora kukri but crafted in small size. The scabbard is artistically made from pure silver with beautiful patterns laid over a high quality velvet background on both sides. The blade is identical to the service issue kukri (current issue) of the British Gurkhas in shape and look. It can be used as a letter opener, a paper cutter or as a decorating tool. It makes a perfect gift and souvenir from Nepal to take back home. The blade is made of solid metal (brass). KOTHIMORA 4” is one of the popular tourist items probably because of its cute look and very easy-to-carry feature plus its safe even with minors.
