'Sirupate' is the 1st word any Nepali would utter when it comes to khukuri >>

Its defined name says it all; a SiruPate version or a slim version that is unpolished and made for rough use.

It has good reach standing at 10” long and well placed equilibrium at around the notch area that provides a perfect feel and handling.

This 'SiruPate Slim' comes in a basic (traditional) rat-tail tang handle with a wooden grip secured by brass fittings. A simple normal leather scabbard with a lanyard loop for thigh leather cord /string and a single belt-loop frog is fixed.

Size of blade: 10 inch approx.

Name, History, importance & usage of Sirupate 

"Hamro pyaro Sirupate Khukuri (our dear Sirupate kukri)"  >>  Here is some info on Nepal's no.1 khukuri 


SiruPate “Historically”
There isn’t many classic models in this format. Some have the slenderness but much more curved. After the war (killing) era a need for a more functional and domestic kukri knife to assist the daily rural living led to the creation of this model. Villagers turned to the nature and found the answer in the form of a special leaf called the SIRU-PAAT. The shape was copied and molded in a kukri profile. It is our belief that SiruPate kukri materialized in early 1800s.

the IMPORTANCE >>
In the rural villages and hilly regions of Nepal farmers carry out their daily domestic and livelihood works by always carrying a khukuri. Therefore a need for a handy, functional and mobile khukuri is necessary that would assist them to accomplish any objectives that involve cutting, hacking, clearing, hammering etc. Since a SiruPate khukuri is slender, lighter weight  and handier, making it more practical than other khukuris, farmers prefer it over other models and heavily rely on it. The knife not only helps a farmer do his daily profession but also safe guards him from imminent threats and danger from wild animals while in the woods. This special bond between the user and his khukuri keeps him stable, strong, and always at a safe bay. SiruPate khukuri becomes like his guarding angel physically, mentally, and religiously making it Nepalese no.1 choice khukuri.

SiruPate as a “KNIFE”
A SiruPate is a slimmer and lighter compared to other khukuris yet very effective. The mobility, easy-going, and delight-to-carry feature of the khukuri makes it more special and extra than its counterparts. It is designed for daily household and outdoor cutting activities in the villages and hills. It is one of the most famous and common khukuris in Nepal which has good demand amongst the locals. It is highly recommended for those who like to travel light. Sirupate khukuri makes a very good gift and souvenir to take back home from Nepal.

SiruPate - a “GURKHA knife”
The very main advantage a Sirupate khukuri has over its counterparts makes it a preferred knife of any Gurkha soldier (recruits). The blade is constructed narrow, slim, and light (less weight) thus very easy to maneuver and carry around. It has good reach that make cutting effortless. There is no stress in handling the khukuri for a prolong time and you can also walk miles carrying it with no pressure at all. Moreover majority of Gurkhas are small stature so something small and light yet very effective and versatile khukuri is always their 1st choice. SiruPate is by no means a standard issue but an optional no.2 kukri knife for training, exercise, and even for military campaigns and battles. Soldiers have choices when it comes to their secondary knife and most would pick Sirupate. They buy this khukuri on their own from reliable maker/manufacturer (source) like KHHI Nepal.
