12inch SiruPana (SASSY) = Sirupate + Full Tang Khukuri

Truly an all-rounder, be it inside your showcase or out in the deep wild forest.  

This interesting name is actually extracted from two very famous Kukris terms used in Nepal; 'Siru' from 'SiruPate' and 'Pana' from 'Panawal', hence 'SiruPana'.  'Sassy' is the nick for its smart, cheeky, bold look and spirit of this kukri. In simple words, it is a Sirupate Khukuri with a Panawal handle.

The 12 inches long blade is that of the slimmer and slender “SiruPate” type and it gives better coverage and area. The shape of the blade is actually the influence of the maker from a leaf called “Siru Paat” found in the hilly region of Nepal. the blade is forged narrow and slender; weight is reduced, and as a result, handling the knife is easier and less tiring.

The strong and superb “Panawal” handle; here, is further improvised for better and easier grip. Likewise “Panawal” means, as seen in the above picture, a handle with full flat tang going all the way through and reinforced by rivets from two sides to secure the handle to the tang (The two wooden pieces handles are first glued and later hammered by rivets to strengthen the whole fixture). Unlike the regular khukuris, the number of ridges in the handle is ignored and replaced by one singular bulky ridge, as seen in the picture. A full flat tang rosewood handle that offers easy grip and handling is also fitted to withstand the heavy duty work and pressure.

A special brown leather scabbard is used with a fasten-up frog and a metal tip is used to beautify the overall look of khukuri.

The combination/ feature of the khukuri is such that both above-mentioned objectives can be achieved from the “SiruPana”; sheer supremacy within a Sassy kukri.

A Great Product and Great Service

This is my third khukuri from KHHI Nepal and, like the other two, is a superb example of the knifemakers art. I use one of my other khukuris, the Power Panawal, as a cutting tool and outdoor knife because of its weight, but the Sirupana is light and fast by comparison and was bought as a personal protection weapon should the need ever arise, which I hope it doesn't! Nevertheless, I shall practice with it, as we never know what Fate might have in store for us. The khukuri also arrived within 4 days of dispatch, which is amazing, when you consider that the distance in air miles between Kathmandu and the UK is 4,582!! The kami who made the knife for me, Mangaldhan Biswakarma (M), is a superb craftsman, and it is an honour for me to own an awesome example of his handiwork. Once again, it is a pleasure to order from KHHI Nepal. The whole process of selection, ordering and asking for any modifications or add-ons, is smooth and straightforward, and everyone is very helpful. A fantastic product and great service. For anyone considering buying a genuine, hand made khukuri of excellent quality, I thoroughly recommend KHHI Nepal and its team of superb craftsmen.
