This is a 12.5 inch Special Royal Shri Tin Old Army Khukuri.

“Shri Tin” is the royal title offered to then Rana rulers who had ruled Nepal for almost 104 years. GGK reproduced it with the modern execution taking all the traditional aspects in consideration. It has an old, traditional style rat tail tang handle. It is easy to handle and razor sharp blade gives the distinctive powerful clean cuts. Though little longer blade GGK has designed this blade with good ergonomics with balanced weight providing more agility during use. Old kukris mostly had longer blades and we had maintained the same tradition. This blade was used by the Old Nepalese army at different battles. Because of the slender design and slightly thinner spine it is easy to but , provides more thrust upon the application of effort. It is recommended for outdoor works as the greater tip speed and less cutting resistance optimises the blade for thinner wood with the greater ability of hacking through thin flexible brush in a way that larger khukuris aren’t capable of . So it carries a significant value for the Army soldiers.

Available in traditional leaf design black scabbard molded by straps and buttons, two small blades namely Karda & Chakmak are also part of this kukri. Karda is the sharp small knife which is typically used for carving, digging holes, skinning animals, preparing kindling, whittling wood, etc. Similarly, we have the Chakmak that is typically used for honing the blade and striking sparks for fire.

GGK produced karda and chakmak are of high quality and long term nature compared to others.

A historic multifunction weapon with traditional blends.
