This is very special and expensive KHURMI because of the material used
for the case and handle. The White Buffalo horn used which is very rear
and their difficulty in availability makes this khukuri special. At
times the horn is so white that the blade is visible through its case.
It is made in Nepal. This knife modeled after a wheat harvesting tool,
this piece, while not an actual Khukuri, is great for yard work. There
is no standard size of the knife. The shape of this knife is completely
different than Khukuri. The half-moon shaped blade catches small
branches and dispatches them safely and quickly. Nepalese village Women
mostly use it in rice field for cutting the grass. A stunningly
beautiful scabbard that is crafted of buffalo's horn and hand inlayed
brass depictions of Nepal's national symbol such as king's crown,
national flag, national bird-Danfe, cross khukuri, Gurkha insignia,
national fish etc. It weights varies according to their size. A normal
size blade is 8" long blade and handle is 5" long. The total shipping
weight including display wooden stand with packing will be 1.5 kg.
