SiruPate (Slender); traditional Nepali kukri knife .. a classic piece from history

sirupate Khukuri

 

SiruPate” is a vocabulary in the Nepalese language, the name is derived from a leaf’s name found in the hill areas of Nepal. “Siru” is the plant’s name and the leaf of it is called “Paat”. Since the shape of the Siru’s leaf inspires the shape of the SiruPate kukri, the name is given so. It is the most famous and common khukuri amongst all locals. When it comes to kukri the first word a Nepalese would utter is "SiruPate".

In the rural villages of the hillside of Nepal, local farmers carry out their daily domestic and livelihood work always carrying a kukri knife. Therefore a need for a handy, functional and mobile knife becomes necessary that would assist them to accomplish any objective that involves cutting, hacking, etc. Since a SiruPate is slender, lighter, and handier (making it more practical than other kukris) farmers prefer it and highly rely on it.

The kukri not only helps a farmer do his daily profession but also safeguards him from imminent threats and danger from wild animals while in the woods. This special bond between the user and his kukri keeps him stable, strong, and always at bay from physical threats. His kukri becomes like a guarding angel physically, mentally, and religiously. 

Nepali SiruPate kukri is a simple, slim, light, and traditional version yet very effective and attractive at the same time. The mobility and well balanced weight of the kukri makes it more special and extra than its counterparts. It is designed for daily household usage and for outdoor as well. It is one of the most famous kukris in Nepal and is always in high demand in the local market. It is highly recommended for those who like to travel light and prefer light weight kukri. It also makes a great gift to take back home from Nepal as a souvenir of the country.

SiruPate is also an occasional kukri knife that is used in marriage ceremonies and other religious events. It also accompanies a male dancer to perform the traditional “Kukri Dance” in Nepal.

This SiruPate kukri comes in a basic rat-tail tang handle with a wooden grip secured with brass fittings. It has a traditional sheath that comes with 2 accompanying knives (KARDA; a knife and CHAKMAK; a sharpener).

A wonderful initiation into the KHHI blade owners' community

Last week I received my Chitlange, my fifth KHHI kukri and as fine a blade as I've ever owned. My wife handled it and was very impressed. She mentioned that she would prefer something a bit lighter and shorter, and I knew the Sirupate would be perfect for her. Thankfully the USA depot still had them in stock and I received it five days before her birthday. I couldn't wait that long to give it to her and she is absolutely delighted with it. It's the perfect size and weight for her, and I found it every bit as pleasant to handle as she did. It's a light, quick, lively blade that still has commendable reach. It hits like a hammer but is also light and dextrous enough for delicate work. I would recommend this to anyone unsure about what to choose as a first kukri. As always, fit and finish are unsurpassed by anyone in this price range. The karda and chakmak are functional tools rather than afterthought placeholders, and the scabbard is secure and well appointed with thick, supple leather. My wife and I wish to extend our sincere appreciation to craftsman Bir Bahadur B.K. and family, and to all at KHHI for sharing your passion for this art with the world.

Very Impressed !

Received my order today. It tooked about two weeks. All my khukuris were well packaged and oiled. I'm very impressed with the SiruPate (Slender). The craftsmanship is excellent and the edge is very sharp. The kami is "R." He did a fine job and I couldn't find any imperfections! This khukuri will definitely excel in combat (self-defense) which is what why I ordered it. A big "Thank You" to kami R and KHHI. I am very pleased and will be ordering some more khukuris soon : )

So very nice!

I've heard good things about Khukuri House for years, and it's all true! My SuriPate is nicer than I ever expected it to be. The Karda and Chakmak are well finished and fit nicely into the sheath. The edge on my SuriPate is amazingly sharp and the narrower blade moves and balances flawlessly. The finish is great, the sheath is snug but not over tight, and the shipping was faster than I'd hoped for. Thank you for sharing your talents and skills with us all!

The Kukhuri by itself is a masterpiece

Hello the team!

We have well received the 2 Kukhuris, an Angkhola 17", a Sirupate 12". Of course, I give you a quick feedback, without time and hard abuse experience, but as it is not the first time we buy knives to your company, I am quite confident.

Sirupate:

The sheath is flat, secure.  Brown frog with black leather sheath makes a beautiful combinaison. The Karda and Chakmak are useful. It is rare enough to be mention. Thanks for that!  The Kukhuri by itself is a masterpiece. Not too less, not too much. The tip of the blade is a stabber. Also a point that is rare enough to mention! The only thing to say about this knife is that it looks near to what I considere" Perfection".

Now the Angkhola:

Kydex and leather sheath, both perfect. The edge is not too convex, razor sharp, with a dangerous tip at the end. Same comment than for the Sirupate's: Nice!
The handle is a little bit too large for my hand, but as I know you have big men customers and it is easier to polish a bit than to add on material, I do not feel right to complain about.

Bene and I are very happy with your work and custom relations.

Thank you for all that.

And per advance, thank you for the pleasure we will have to use this tools!

Padma.
