Sirupate Khukuri knife . This Khukuri is made in Nepal for those customers that requested a smaller blade. Price includes shipping inside the USA.
Sirupate translates as Siru Leaf Grass of which this blade shape resembles. Additional engraving is on the blade and pommel. It has a brass bolster as well as a decorated pommel. It is light weight for easy carry. It comes with wooden scabbard wrapped in white leather and would look good on a desk.
The Khukri weight varies slightly (+/- a couple of grams) as these are hand forged. This is a good knife for General Purpose camp use and can be used for self defense. I am working with Nepalese Black Smiths to step up and produce higher quality Khukuri.

Excellent little Kukri. Light weight enough for daily carry, it has no trouble chopping through 1” saplings with only a few strokes. Edge geometry is great, not hair shaving sharp but after a few passes on honing steel it will bite 1/2” deep into wood. I managed to chew through a 2 1/2” piece of dried branch and though it took a minute the handle, bolster, peened cap is still tight as a vault. Absolutely worth the $75 price but short of 5 stars.
The handle symmetry is off, a little work with a dremel and it would be fine. The handle is a little small, even for me and I wear medium gloves. The white sheath didn’t light my fire, black or some earth tone would be preferred.
A little more fine tuning to the handle QC and I would be happy to pay $100 but for $75 as is it’s still an amazing deal.
