A Classical Kothimora of the finest material available made by the World renowned Kukri production company Himalayan Imports in Nepal.

 

Dhankuta is a small town in eastern Nepal that functioned as district capital for the North East region until the late 20th century. During the Rana period a Bada Hakim (big boss), usually a Rana, served in this position overseeing the Adm, Military and Jurisdiction of the region. It was a major Military town and also a main station for many returning Gurkhas of the British Army and Gorkhas of the Indian Army.

 

The Dhankute (from Dhankuta) Kukri is known for its traditional scabbard and often comes with a slim blade, such as in this one.

Sgt. Khadka of the Warrior family and who takes his name from the famous Khadka Sword.

 

Top chape of sheath engraved with a lotus flower of mythical origins, closely associated with Buddhism and Hinduism.

 

Handle of black horn with traditional high"Kothimora" quality bone with creamish stains.

 

Overall a great Kukri for the serious collector or for use it works very fine too, though a bit fancy perhaps for a camp tour but for sure will do the work as made by one of the best Kukri producers of the late 20th century..

"Sgt Khadka Dhankute Kothimora (Himalayan Imports) Kukri."

 

 

SOLD

 

Overall 12 inches

11oz

 

Originally a Himalayan Imports Kukri that we know offer on consignment.

 

Most people don't know that the Sgt. Khadka got his start only making little Biltons, and these Dhankutas were as big as he went for a long time before his signature Bigboys (BC, Shamsher and etc)

Scabbard -Made out silver strips and supple yellow leather (black marks on leather are from oxidation of silver remnants). The leather has been treated with beeswax for longevity since these pics were taken.

Blade- sharp as any Sgt product always known of with wonderful texture on the buff horn handle. Hollow forged.
