*As Khukuris are handmade they may have slight variations in measurements. The Khukuri comes with in a leather case and with two smaller knives: the Karda and the Chakmak. The Karda is used as an auxiliary knife and The  Chakmak is used for sharpening the blade of the Kukhuri.

The Khukuri can be a useful working tool as well as an excellent present for decoration.


Do not encircle the scabbard with your finger while taking out your Khukuri. This may cause injury.

·          When you take out the Kukri from its case or scabbard, always make sure that the sharp side of the blade is opposite to your body.

·          If the blade is stuck in the case or scabbard, do not try to take it out with force, Move the blade up and down a couple of times and try to pull it slowly out.


·          Please apply machine/gun oil, on the blade at least once a month or every time after use.  As Kukhuris are made of carbon steel, make sure not to leave any fingerprint on the blade. The fingerprints may contribute to the blade to rust. In case rust develops, rub it off with fine sandpaper, clean the dirt using petroleum oil, wipe it off with a clean cloth and apply lubricating oil.

·          Both sides of the Chakmak can be used to sharpen the blade of THE KHUKURI. However, a sharpening stone is recommended.

·          Please do not expose the Scabbard to the sun for a long time, as heating may shrink the Scabbard and can make the blade difficult to insert in the Scabbard.

DO NOT HIT THE KUKHURI AGAINST ANY METAL, STONES OR ANY OTHER HARD MATERIALS. Make sure your blade is always dry after use and apply some lubricants on the blade to protect it from rust.
