Collection of Traditional and Modern Sirupate Kukri
The origination of this exquisite Kukri design comes from Eastern Nepal, Dharan. The real history for the date of origin isn’t quite traceable but it was already popular in Nepali households during the early 19th century. However, this Kukri was compared with Drabya Shah, the king of Nepal in mid-1500 so, it must have been in use since then. This traditional Kukri is still in demand that denotes its widespread popularity and reliability.
The name Sirupate for this Kukri is inspired by the hilly region fauna of Nepal i.e. Siru plant. The shape of this Kukri is typically comparable to the leaf of the “Siru” plant and a leaf is called “Paat” in the Nepali language. This is how this Kukri is named “Sirupate”. Sirupate Kukri from FAMOUS GURKHA KUKRI HOUSE is the reflection of our passion and love for Kukri’s history, Gurkha heritage, and Himalayan culture.

Traditional and modern Sirupate kukri
This is a blade that was designed to be used probably out in the field. It has a thick scabbard for the blade. The traditional form of this Kukri has been one of the most worldwide accepted forms of Kukri. They are available with the set of Chakmak and Karda. These sets of small knives, blades are available with every Kukri we sell. Their main purpose is to light a fire, sharpen the kukri, and to use it as a small cutting tool.
The modern Sirupate Kukri was made by our group of skilled Kamis in Nepal- an inborn Kukri maker. They have made these Kukris by just grabbing the gist of the idea of the new design and have poured their hard work and caliber to deliver this magnificent blade. The Chakma of the modern Sirupate is pointed enough to help you start a fire using the friction method in extreme situations. The karda is now of a very functional width and length blade. The karda can itself be used as a good small knife for slicing and chopping.
The modern Sirupate has a much secured blade handle. The slight hollow grind on the blade makes it even lighter than the traditional one while the profile is still the same. It is suitable for both as a utility tool and a fighting knife. This modification includes the Chakma as well as the karda. The karda is a bit larger for increasing usefulness. It can be made up of full tang and stick tang, wooden or metal.
We, FAMOUS GURKHA KUKRI HOUSE as a kukri making company bring history alive through the art and science of hand forging knives and blades. The modernized Sirupate Kukri carries the overall spirit and design of the original blade but makes it more lighter and useful tool as per modern needs.
