This is a 15 inch Sirupate khukuri. This is a traditional knife especially used by Rai and Limbu people in Nepal.
This khukuri delivers longer cut as it possesses a much longer blade. This khukuri is especially used to butcher animals, cut trees. This khukuri is used to chop wood, meat, bushes etc.
Two small knives namely Karda & Chakmak are also part of this kukri. Karda is a small sharp knife which can be used to cut small woods, dig holes, skinning out animals. Similarly, we have Chakmak that can be used for honing the blade and produce sparks .
Karda and Chakmak produced by GGK are of very high quality as they too are made from leaf spring blade compared to others serving the very purpose.
