Kothimora means Kukri having silver mounted scabbard. This is a knife specially made of the retiring Gurkha or British Officeres. A retire officer recieves this Kukri from his regiments as a memento. The Sheath is exclusively designed using pure silver filigree with top quality velvet background. Crafted by hand here in Nepal, it has 6" long blade and 4" long Buffalo horn handle (overall length 10 inches). All Khukuris have two pockets on the back of the scabbard which hold a blunt steel called "chakmak" for sharpening the blade or for striking spark from flint and a little knife known as "karda" used for skinning small animals such as rabbits. The notch (kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most khukuris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, thus preventing it from soiling the hilt, as well as a device for catching and neutralizing and enemy blade.
