This is a 6 inch Royal Kothimora Khukuri. Kothimora refers the khukuri with scabbard especially decorated from silver with top quality velvet as background. This is a special khukuri reproduced by GGK in traditional design with modern aesthetics.

This khukuri was mostly worn by kings on their waist band.

Originally this khukuri was manufactured in 1916. Kothimoras were presented as gifts for departing army officers recognizing their contributions and deeds. A retired officer can get this khukuri from his regiment as memento. GGK has reproduced this khukuri keeping in mind the design, detail and art within the blade. The scabbard designed by our own gold smith reflects the high quality craftsmanship and is amazing with regimental cap badges & beautiful patterns mounted on it depicting cultural and traditional values.

Worn by kings in their waist band historically this khukuri is currently used as decorative and as popular gift item to be gifted to people living abroad by the Nepalese people
