About the Gurkhas' 20 Sirupate Wooden Handle. The 20 Blade Sirupate Wooden Handle with Leather Sheath Kukri- This is traditional and our most popular kukri knife among the Nepalese people. The name Sirupate is derived from "SIRU" (a very narrow and sharp type of grass).

The 20 blade is made of Highly Graded Carbon with balanced temper on the edge of the blade, therefore it is very strong and durable. A 6 long rat tail style handle is made of very strong Indian Rosewood.
This kukri can be used for chopping wood, cutting through bone or clearing bushes. As well as other domestic or backyard work. The scabbard is made out of cotton-wood wrapped with natural water buffalo leather which has been dyed black. The scabbard has a leather loop called Faraas with a frog which is used to attach to the belt.
