BhojPure Khukuri (Nepali) 

A historic, iconic, old, and treasured khukuri with traditional and religious values in Nepalese culture.

Bhojpure Khukuri is fatter and heavier than the standard army knives. The blade is also made thicker to ease and quicken the cutting action. Since it is basically a cutting knife it is kept/made very simple. BhojPure these days are the modernized version of its older counterparts. They have been better finished to give a better look and appeal. A BhojPure is an outstanding working knife that can be also be used in rough conditions. It also makes an excellent and unique gift since the knife is historic, iconic, and has religious values.

Heartily loved by all Nepalese.. the ALL TIME FAVOURITE :) 


Why this kukri is called "BhojPure"?

Bhojpur, a far eastern hilly village of Nepal where farming is the prime source of livelihood is famous for its khukuris (Local Production). The khukuri is named after this very old village as it is the origin source. Amongst the number of khukuris created and made by Bhojpures this format is the most famous of all that directly links the knife to the village. The original BhojPures dates back to many centuries but the exact dates and details are sketchy as it was never documented.


Why Bhojpure Khukuri? usage, beliefs, and tradition

an old Bhojpure kukri carried in sash by farmers

Farmers used it and still use it to accomplish their daily domestic and livelihood activities that require cutting and hacking. Their everyday routine of performing household chores and various farming activities that involve a sharp edge is accomplished by this locally forged kukri. Along with other essentials farmers carry their personal BhojPure Kukris, and by it do just about anything that is required from a sharp edge and metallic tool to make a successful living. It's also a weapon to safeguard own self from predators and offenders.

It is more than just a cutting knife for a farmer- in fact, it's his partner and his safe keeper. BhojPure because it is an old and treasured khukuri, and has its own traditional and religious values in Nepalese culture. It is believed that a BhojPure khukuri would bring good fortune and prosperity when kept at home, it would also safeguard a home from evil and Satan spirits, would help a man sleep well when kept under his pillow, a bridegroom carries his ancestral BhojPure khukuri in his sash during marriage ceremony to represent his entire family and some typical families discard a BhojPure khukuri belonging to the dead man in his last rite believing it would scare away all evil spirits and take its master to heaven. All-most-all Nepalese keep the BhojPure kukri at home primarily because of these above beliefs.

 I received Kukri earlier than expected and what I received was more than expected. The BhojPure that Rana Bahadur Biswokarma created for me was exceptional from the moment I touched it. I have other "look like kukri" but now that I know what a traditional genuine Kukri looks and feels like. I am drawn to handle my BhojPure daily and know that whether in the woods or fields along with my faithful dog I will carry my new companion. I look forward to future purchases with you.
Thank you and NAMASTE

PS The maintenance and use pamphlet is very useful.

very sturdy and well constructed but came completely blunt


I have received my custom 12inch Bhojpure. I wanted to give a few days of trying to use it before I gave my thoughts. 
Firstly, I wanted to express my thanks for filming and photographing some of the making process for me, that was a very kind gesture and wonderful to watch. 
This Bhojpure looks like a beautiful piece that seems to be very sturdy and well constructed. 

HOWEVER while the material and construction seem to be solid and beautiful sadly this khukuri does not seem to be sharp enough for it’s use as a tool which was its ultimate intention. I attempted cut a piece of firewood and it didn’t seem to cut properly. I then tried to cut a plastic bottle and it just left a crease in the plastic. Please see the video of me drawing the khukuri across my hand without concern. 
Also, the little Karda was completely blunt.

that I gave the Khukuri a sharpen and it is now working well. :) 

I apologize for this feedback and I support your organization’s ethos from what I’ve seen online; but as requested, this is my feedback.

Kind regards,
Shaun J

Happy customer

Good day,
I have taken delivery of the "BhojPure” khukuri recently ordered. It is a beautifully made tool and feels well balanced in the hand. The care and use information included is greatly appreciated. As mentioned in an earlier note, I intend to make use of this fine knife on our sheep and goat farm here in California.
Thank you for the careful packaging and fast shipment. I am very pleased with my new khukuri.

I worked for the UN World Health Organiation in Eastern Nepal (living in Biratnagar) in 2000. As was there as part of the global polio eradication program. Of course, before leaving Nepal, I wanted a souvenir and couldn't think of anything better than a real khukuri, made in Nepal. And by "real" I meant one that was used everyday by everyday people in the country. The people I had been living and worling with. I've had my khukuri now for 20 years and it's still my favorite knife! Over the years, i have used it for everything - camping, hunting, in my back yard chopping wood, making wood chips for my smoker, and SO MUCH MORE. I browse online to look at all the new "modern" khukuris but always just go back to my original one! It's a simple knife from ordinary people, but by far, one of my favorite possessions. I suspect it'll be something I will pass down to one of my children.

I have received the above Kukri and am very satisfied with the quality and your excellent service.

This is my second Kukri from you and I wanted to display them so I have made stands out of Australian Blackwood which is a very hard but attractive material. For your information, I have included three photographs showing the stands. The first Kukri I have left in its sheath but with the second one, I wanted to display the blade. The stand for this incorporates four strong magnets in a knife-shaped recess that allows the Kukri to be securely held and display the attributes of its manufacture. This way I can show off the workmanship on both of them to my friends and visitors. I hope this is of interest.
