King Prithivi kukri is a tribute to the legendary king who united Nepal as one large kingdom and established the foundation of modern Nepal and beyond, and to commemorate the great deeds of the man who gave us the identity and recognition to live a free and dignified life.

The Princess Knife

The Princess Kukri I don't know what to say about this kukri; King Prithivi (Unifier) is some of the most beautiful knives I have ever held. So much so, it was called the Princess. It is one of the knives I don't think I will ever use. My review is really on the appearance of the knife. It feels weirdly like a sword. In hand, the blade is very light and has a great center of balance. The edge should cut well, in my opinion. The knife is simple, like the King Prithivi Narayan Shah himself. The Kukri has a practical and straightforward elegance to it. The only fancy part of the historical model is the white wood attached to the weapon. To me, the white wood was a status to the King's position. Other than that, it was a weapon, tool, and everything above. Thus, a perfect weapon to survive on and fight on. My suspect, this kukri was used in more than one skirmish. As a history nerd, get this blade! It is a blade that is a reproduction of a piece of history with proper weights and usage. But also since it is cool. Due to its looks, I call it Princess and put it in a place of honor. Side note history: First, who is King Prithivi? The King, Prithivi Narayan Shah, a man in short who conquered much of modern-day Nepal as he sought to create a single Hindu state. A man who wanted to make an Asal Hindustan (Real land of Hindus). From wise leadership, generalship, and several capable leaders under his command, he began the unification of Nepal's Kingdom. A legacy that founded Nepal's nation, from Nepal's Kingdom and its effects still being felt in the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. To the Nepalese, King Prithivi Narayan Shai is the father of the Nepalese nation. The King's knife is in Nepal's National Museum with the many weapons of the King.

Namaste Sir,
I did not realize that you are The MD of the company I am very impressed that you personally get involved with your customers , I have purchased 8 Khukri knives off you when I lived in South Wales uk and have never been dissatisfied your products are first class, a certain Simon Hengle always try's to put your  knives down but I have researched his knives and have found many complaints from customers about the Quality of his knives , This is why I have chosen your company as my supplier, I only buy one or two but I cherish everyone of them 
Kind regards

Just wanted to let you know the knives arrived yesterday and are magnificent, the workman ship of your kami’s is something to be very proud of. Also many thanks for the complimentary paper knife, which has already come in useful. The blades are all finished as requested, with white metal. The King Prithivi is a massive blade but lighter than the 3 Chirra Beast I already have by some 30g - it certainly a menacing looking blade. All are well balanced and great in the hand, I plan to test them later today with my Son when it’s a little cooler and the rain stops.

Only two minor things I will mention, but these do not detract from how pleased I am with the selection. The officer handle is a little small both in length and width for my hands, I should have asked for it to be made a little longer and thicker if that would have been possible. The other thing is very minor, two of the four sheathes came without a lanyard loop but this is not an issue at all, I know it was an additional request to have these included but it doesn’t change how amazing the knives I have are.
Many thanks,


Ian Lawrence Singapore
