“Yalambar” a new kirati Successor in traditional series showcasing its sturdy and aesthetic design in elegant looks. A proud heritage built by GGK for true traditional khukuri lovers.
“Yalambar” a first kirati king and a great warrior had established Kirati kingdom in 1500 B.C. The Kiratas were original inhabitants of Nepal. Yalambatr shifted his capital from Yalung to Thankot after conquering central Nepal and expanded his territory from river Trisuli in the west to river Tista in the east. “Yalambar” had great power and strength so to reduce the Great Mahabharat war days Lord Krishna diplomatically cut off Yalambars head in the Mahabharat war. So, in his honour Indrajatra festival was put and his head is worshipped as god AAKASH BHAIRAB, centrally located at the heart of Kathmandu. Later his dynasty was succeeded by Licchavi kingdom.
With this historic epic keeping alive GGK has made this new khukuri “Yalambar” paying tribute to this great warrior. With much leaps of imagination and dream upkeeping the traditional art and design alive in the blade GGK hand forged it in the modern aesthetics. The exquisite built slender shape lightweight blade is very agile with powerful cuts not less than a real chopper. The handle is a full tang carved with ridges and grooves for sturdy hold in the palms with more flexible swings. The full tang handle is tough enough to crack on any hard or light materials that comes fore. The metal pommel and bolster are strong to withstand the heavy impact taken by the blade. Craftsmanship on this khukuri is amazing with stunning “Yalambar” insigna engraved at the Chhape moulded atop the beautiful sheath.
The khukuri is accompanied by well built karda and chakmak of high quality. Karda is the sharp small 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 striking sparks for fire.
It’s really a dream come true for the passionate khukuri lovers and if you are looking for the finest quality khukuri GGK guarantees that you will not be disappointed.
