Brass Angkhola Kukri (Heavy Metal)

The regular Angkhola (special semi-fuller feature) bladed kukri is improvised and enhanced with a metallic handle...

This is the brass version of the Angkhola kukri thus the name “Brass Angkhola”. The regular Angkhola bladed kukri is improvised and enhanced with a metallic handle, Brass or Aluminum sometimes. The metallic form of this special type of handle is executed for durability and to give a fancier look. The kukri knife hence is both, a useable and displayable piece. 

Brass Angkhola has a blade crafted with a semi fuller or layer (hump) that runs across the main (above) panel of the blade. It is made so to give more strength and durability to the width of the blade while in use and also to cut down the unnecessary weight of the blade. The curvature will need support to the flat surface by evenly distributing the impact force generated when striking against a target. It is also a display of true craftsmanship as it is hard to craft. This is a heavy version khukuri therefore the cut down in the weight makes the khukuri easier to use.

Brass sometimes aluminum is used to making the hilt in order to prevent it from breaking apart even when exposed in the sun for a longer period of time. The metallic handle also prevents the handle from getting scratches and bruises. A fancy and elegant look, a break from traditional look too, is achieved by the brass handle fitted for this khukuri.

Brass Angkhola has a regular scabbard with a protective brass chape. Both its accompanying knives, “Karda (small utility knife) and Chakmak (sharpener) have a brass handle, done to suit the overall look of the khukuri.

Good working and decorative knife.

Kothimora Brass (Fancy)

A silver scabbard kukri with a special metallic brass handle...

Kothimora Brass is a special knife given as gifts or as a token of love to mark respect and appreciation. Traditionally, it is also carried by a bridegroom with his customary dress in the marriage ceremony in order to stand out from the crowd. Brass kothimora is a later version of the regular kothimoras. Its handle is made in brass or in other metallic forms for durability, fancy and prominent look.

An extra effort of making the blade in “Angkhola” version is executed to add more life to the whole kukri. The forging of the blade enhances the beauty and the craftsmanship at the same time as the process undertaken is laborious and complex. The blade is heavier and fatter too so the feel of a real hacking knife is accomplished. Both small knives, Karda and Chakmak of this type have brass handles to suit the main kukri. A “Kothimora Brass” comes in various basic color velvet backgrounds. A buyer may order his preferred color on demand.

Mini Brass Dragon (Elegant)

The brass and dragon combination delivers an outstanding work of art that draws attention and appeals an eye..

Mini Brass Dragon is a fancy and elegant looking kukri thus many put it in shelf to décor ones pride ownership. The brass and dragon combination delivers an outstanding work of art that draws attention and appeals an eye. This prominent and perfect looking kukri knife would enhance the beauty of a space and polish the whole ambient. The khukuri also makes an ideal gift to give away to special person/s on any occasion, on any account.

The kukri is beautifully carved with dragons on both sides to show more craftsmanship in the blade; however the dragon carving does not have any significant meaning. Makers particularly the “Newars” of Kathmandu who have ancient ties and involvement into carving and sculpture culture do the “Dragon” carving in the khukuri blade to display their skill and exhibit their excellent art handed down since generations. Dragon design is simply done to comply with the elongated shape of the kukri blade. The elongated shape of the Dragon follows through the panel of the kukri blade and ends up giving a suiting and soothing look to the blade. All carvings are done by hand using only basic tools. It takes about 5-6 hours to get a dragon done in this particular blade.

Brass is used to make the hilt in order to prevent it from breaking apart even when exposed in the sun for a longer period of time. The metallic handle also prevents the handle from getting scratches and bruises. A fancy and elegant look, a break from traditional look too, is achieved by the brass handle fitted for this khukuri.

These exclusive features of this knife make it a genuine souvenir from Nepal that would boost one’s interior.
