15inch SiruPate khukuri; famous nepalese kukri knife; an effective and efficient kukri like a sword

The name >>
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. 
 
Traditional belief, purpose and use >> 

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.

Feature of Sirupates >>

long-Sirupate-kukriA SiruPate is a slimmer and lighter version compared to other kukris thus very effective and functional. The mobility due to balanced weight and easy-handling features of the sirupate make the kukri knife more special and essential than other kukri models. Traditional SiruPates mostly come in a basic rat-tail tang with wooden handle secured by brass fittings. Sirupate is one of the most famous and common kukris in Nepal and very high in demand amongst the locals. Sirupate is also very famous with the Gurkhas since it is easy to use and very functional. The traditional Sirupate version is highly recommended for those who like to travel light and also make great gift for your loved ones.

Sirupate 15 inch kukri profile >>
 
This particular SiruPate 15” (famous) is the longer version of the standard SiruPate. It is designed for more coverage and wider area so that a single swing/stroke is good enough to get the job done. The blade is light and handy even though longer (a full 15” bladed) thus cutting is swift and easy. The SiruPate 15” (famous) can be used as a machete to clear bush, to cut small trees and branches, to clear under-growth etc. The effortless yet effective SiruPate 15” (famous) would be a great knife to pick up from when longer yet lighter functional knife is wanted.

Old SiruPate Khukuri from 19th century
a little history on the kukri...
The origin, history, and facts are very sketchy. The saddest part in kukri is it was hardly documented. It was only in the early 19th century, much late, the British started documenting when they felt the knife. The Sirupate kukri version of king Drabya Shah who ruled Nepal in mid 1500's suggests that Sirupate was already quite popular in those days. This leads us to the fact that it is a very old kukri that probably originated much earlier than we ever thought. However, this Sirupate kukri offered here is a new version, a modern one, that was made in Dharan, Eastern Nepal, and designed in the late 1970's - early 1980's highly inspired by the old Sirupate kukri. The maker modernized it as per the new time, taste, demand, condition, and soon the kukri was an instant hit.

Why sword?? Since the kukri comes in a mini sword size and can also be used like a sword for brutal consequences..

None Better Then Khukuri House

I cannot explain in words alone how beautiful this handcrafted Siru Pate I received today is in reality. The craftsmanship is beyond excellent. The quality and exceptional service is the leader among all others. I ordered the 18-inch size with decorative band on the sheath. I display it on a stand in my office and enjoy every second I have to admire it. The Khukuri House is the original makers of these fine blades and the experience shows in they're quality products.

Great SiruPate

Wow, thank you so much for my SiruPate knife, maker Mangaldhan B. The quality, durability and craftsmanship is excellent, the knife holds a edge very well even when working hard seasoned wood. The attention to detail is next to none. I am so pleased Thank you so much Mangaldhan. I will order again from you in the future. : )

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
