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
Domestic water buffalo hide is used to cover the inner wooden frames of the scabbard. The natural hide is painted black to give the original and typical look. A brass chape is also fixed at the front section for protection and presentation. The scabbard also comes with the two regular accompanying knives; “Karda (small utility knife)” and “Chakmak (sharpener)”.
Since a leather scabbard is somewhat sensitive to the outside temperature and weather plus it may wear off soon with excessive use it is highly recommended to have an extra or a back up scabbard for your khukuri. Sometimes there is also a possibility that the sharp edge of the kukri blade may cut through the leather making it unsafe to use anymore. Ignoring such fault may lead to some serious damage to finger as the two inner wooden frames used to making the scabbard leave a small elongated gap that only gets wrapped/covered by the buffalo leather. In a case like this an extra scabbard would come very useful to continue and complete an assignment.
(Please mention the type of the khukuri/s for which you are buying the scabbard in the “Questions/Comments” field when going through the ordering steps)
* The Price includes scabbard for 6-12 inches long bladed Khukuris
