Dragon:: This is so called because of the dragon carving in the blade. The kukri is beautifully carved with dragons on both sides to show more craftsmanship in the blade; however the dragon carving does not have any significant meaning. A kukri like this is more a decorative piece than a working tool although can be used if needed. Makers particularly the “Newars” of Kathmandu who have ancient ties and involvement into carving and sculpture culture do the “Dragon” carving in the khukuri blade to display their skill and exhibit their excellent art handed down for generations. Dragon design is simply done to comply with the elongated shape of the kukri blade. The elongated shape of the Dragon follows through the panel of the kukri blade and finishes giving a suiting and soothing look to the blade. Dragon does not hold any special meaning, it is just a display of skill of the carver and to make the khukuri a fine work of art as a whole. All carvings are done by hand using only basic tools. It takes about 7-9 hours to dragon carve a blade of this size.

Khukuri
: This is a large type of kukri used for sacrificing animals in festivals. “Dashain”, the main festival of Nepalese, which mostly falls in October is celebrated by sacrificing animals (buffaloes/goats) after necessary rituals are done on the 9th day called “Maar” during the 10th day long festival. It is a customary in Nepal that families celebrate the festival by purchasing domestic animal from locals and sacrificing it at home or mostly at temples as an offering to the goddess “Durgamata”. There is also a myth that the whole community where the ceremony is performed will suffer misfortune if the beheading is not done in one clean stroke. All the forging and making of the knife is done by hand using only conventional domestic tools. It takes three men one whole day to finish this kukri.

Historically speaking, 18” khukuri was primarily made for religious ceremonies and also as a no.1 combat khukuri for the soldiers. It was also made for the honorary and distinguished people to mark a deed or one’s position. The khukuri is believed to have existed centuries back but was only realized during the Gorkha campaign of uniting Nepal as one big country in mid 1700’s. The battles witnessed excessive use of large khukuris by Gorkhalis (Gorkha Army) which has also been documented and exhibited in the National Arsenal Museum in Kathmandu, Nepal.

The blade measures 18” long and has a wooden handle thus the definite name. The shape resembles the “BhojPure” version; fat, thick and heavy. Brass fixtures are fitted in the handle to give a dashing look. The normal buffalo hide leather scabbard also has a protecting brass chape to give an overall matching look. 18” Wooden khukuri also comes with two accompanying knives in a considerable size, about 4 inches bladed; a good usable size. 18” wooden is also a good utility knife where heavy duty work of cutting is required. It works like a Machete; a perfect knife for hacking, chopping, clearing motherly things not possible from small or standard sized kukri knives. 18” Wooden’s wooden handle gives a traditional look. It also gives a strong and sturdy grip needed to execute big acts.
