"Aitihasik", historic or antique is the legend of all khukuris that has a proud historic significance in Nepal. It is actually the replicated version in style, shape and size of the original kukri that was issued to the “Gorkhali Army” in the 18th century. The Gorkhali Army or famously known as the “Goorkhas” is the first recognized and documented Arm Force of Nepal that was started by King Prithivi Narayan Shah from Gorkha who went to war with a mission to unite all scattered kingdoms into one. The strong military force armed with khukuris, spears, swords and few pump guns conquered all kingdoms and united them into one kingdom, one nation in 1768 AD, which later became Nepal. The Gorkhali Army not only united Nepal but also prevented the British from invading the country who had already taken over India then. Its history dates back to mid 18th century when Gorkhali Sainik led by the king and many of his successful army generals initiated the national campaign of expanding its boarders far and further. Soldiers in the battle carried the khukuri for both reasons, as a main weapon and as a back up weapon in their armory. The famous battle of “Nalapani” in Deheradun of India, commanded by the great general Bhakti Thapa (also shown in the khukuri picture) from Gorkha’s side, witnessed the Aitihasik khukuri in full action, swinging and slaughtering the British, proving it as a lethal and decisive weapon in a hand of a Gorkha.

This khukuri played such a vital and successive role and King Prithivi was so impressed that he later named some of his regiments after its name like the Narasingha Khukuri Brigade, Kaalbhairab 1st Khukuri Brigade to name a few.

The glory of Gorkha, Goorkhas and Khukuri started from this era…


- The khukuri has unpolished blade to resemble the originals
- The khukuri has two straight fullers to resemble the originals
- The shape of the blade is forged wider towards the head/upper portion, done for better swing and force
- The wooden handle is slightly curved towards the end for easier and better grip
- Its scabbard is made from special buffalo hide with embossing and patterns overlaid
- Tip or Kothi is discarded in the scabbard unlike the regular ones. This absence gives the feeling of originality and a look of very traditional khukuris
- Also designed as a solid jungle utility knife like a machete
   
  Materials / Features:
  Special buffalo leather scabbard, Rosewood handle
