It is worn as a part of bridegroom’s ceremonial dress which is done in a belief that the khukuri would safe guard him and protect his new family from evils. The legendary customary in British Gurkhas of giving away souvenir pieces to retiring officers for their loyalty and service is only completed by a Kothimora.
