It is designed for daily household purposes. The effortlessness easiness and effectiveness of Sirupate makes this kukri/khukri very special. It is also accompanies a male dancer to perform the traditional "Khukuri dance". It is very renowned among Nepalese. It comes in variety of sizes from 8" mini to 18" sacrificial sizes.
