SiruPate 15inch; famous nepalese kukri
“SiruPate” is a typical Nepalese word derived from a leaf’s name found in the hill areas of Nepal. “Siru” is the plant’s name and its leaf is called “Paat”. Since the shape of the Siru’s leaf inspires the shape of the SiruPate kukri, the name is given so.
SiruPate is a very traditional kukri that is widely used for domestic purpose, in marriage ceremony and other religious events. It also accompanies a male dancer to perform the traditional “Kukri Dance” in Nepal.
In the rural villages of hillside of Nepal farmers carry out their daily domestic and livelihood works largely carry sirupate kukri knife. A need for a handy, functional and mobile khukuri like the Sirupate becomes necessary. It would assist the user to accomplish his work easily and effectively. A SiruPate kukri is slender, lighter and handier; making it more practical than other kukris. Hence farmers prefer sirupate over other kukris and highly rely on it. The kukri knife not only helps in daily business but also safe guards the user from imminent threats and danger from wild animals while in woods. This special bond between the master and his khukuri (sirupate here) keeps the user stable, strong and always at safe bay. The kukri becomes like his guarding angel physically, mentally and religiously.

My second knife
considering the size of this FAMOUS it has got quite a light weight feel to it and would be comfortable to use for some time i would say. nice looking bush attacker this too as are the two small additions for the dap. there is a minor issue as the butt cap is not whole and cracked, as you can see in the image(top), so have not given a full rating but overall i am still pleased with the purchase. express my thanks to RAKHU (X) please Yours truly Steve
