This is a 14.5 inch 3 Fuller Old Officer Nepalese Army Khukuri. This khukuri was frequently used by High level army officers termed as Kaazis, Badakaazis and other high profile army officers .

Then rulers  used to design weird strange weapons with kaamis turning their imagination into reality. It was really hard for local kaamis as they have to go through different tests and hardships to get approved. Finally some were successful at turning their imagination into reality and were offered huge gifts and bonuses.

We always wondered at this type of antique khukuri as it is hardly found in social medias or anywhere else. However with the strong commitment of owning this khukuri, GGK with lot of hardships found this weapon in a rural village of Nepal. The khukuri was very appealing and authentic with its unique design, sleekness and comfortable use. Convincing the old army owner to get it reproduced in the traditional way, GGK purchased it from him and is kept as vintage collections.
 
It was a surprise to hear from him that this khukuri had been with him from the past 3 generations. However to impart its significance to the true "old khukuri lovers" GGK has reproduced it in the modern aesthetics keeping all the old detail and design of the traditional blade alive. Great efforts and precautionary measures are taken while adding fullers, extra looking notch ‘chho’, etching designs and most of all the blade shape and size.
 
The hand forged distinctive curved blade is a powerful chopper with the balance resting on the traditional blade supported by wooden handle with moulded bolster and stunning butt cap. The khukuri is magnificent with the sturdily built blade having the power of natural cuts.
 
GGK boasts upon this antique reproduction as it is a very rare & unique redesign, very difficult for imitators to copy it. GGK guarantees that the owner will feel pride on owning this best crafted antique & vintage khukuri rarely available anywhere. The scabbard too is worth watching with the potholes for Karda and Chakmak serving their very purposes.
 
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 is of high quality as they are too made from leaf spring blade compared to others serving the very purpose
 
This khukuri can be kept as souvenir hanged on the wall, placed within the glass box or  used for your normal chores.

It is not necessary that everyone should say you a king but with this khukuri “kingship" is self revealing dispatching your woes at the corner.

GGK guarantees that whoever owns it, will surely boast upon this traditional art piece  as it is unique and rarely found on this land.
