Means khukuri knife having silver scabbard; a khukuri that has a special place and value in Nepalese culture and society..

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).

The history of the knife dates back to mid eighteen hundreds when Kings and Generals of Gorkha possessed kothimora to reflect their rank, status and authority (many historic paintings also show this). Kothimora then were actually known as “Kothi-Moda”, which in Nepalese literature means molding in and around the chape portion of the scabbard; Kothi - Chape, Moda - to Mould. Since silver turned out to be the best materials amongst the selected and gave a precious and distinct look to the khukuri, it was extensively used; the trend that exists till today. However Kothimodas then were much different than present ones and were longer as well.

Kothimora is also worn as a part of bridegroom’s ceremonial dress in Nepalese marriage custom. The bridegroom tucks his khukuri in his sash and keeps it throughout the ceremony. This is done in a belief that the khukuri would safe guard him and protect his new family from evils, sins and bad spirit. The khukuri would also fill in for him in his absence in ritual practices.

The legendary customary in British Gurkhas of giving away souvenir pieces to retiring officers for their loyalty and service is only completed by a Kothimora. The retiring officer would get a “Regimental Kothimora” from his comrades and fellow-soldiers when he retires. It is not necessary an official military act but an on going Gurkha tradition executed to honor and thank a worthy soldier and also as a tribute from his regiment at the same time.

“Kothimora 8” has an 8 inch long blade and thus the name. The case is exclusively designed using pure silver filigree with top quality velvet background. Different beautiful patterns are carved in the scabbard depicting cultural and traditional values using only domestic tools. As mentioned above, it is a very special and old type of kukri widely used for ceremonies and given as gifts to mark one’s respect and appreciation.

Unlike its sibling, the 10 inch version, Kothimora 8” is smaller and hence require small room for display and transport. Since silver is an expensive material, the small size of Kothimora 8” makes it cost effective and simply affordable.

Kothimora 8” is a perfect displayable to be with, at your home, office or where you love being most of the time.

The blade is highly polished and handle made from horn handle and polished to complement with its very attractive silver scabbard.
