The Sirupati, traditional khukuri of the Rai and Limbu people of Eastern Nepal, is quick and agile which makes it a favorite of martial artists. Excellently balanced. Light but still strong enough to do a heavy day's work. Scrollwork and brass inlay along back of blade add to the beauty of this already magnificent blade. 18 inches overall, about 3/8 inch thick, about 1.25 to 1.5 lbs depending on the kami who make it. Sometimes horn, sometimes wood handle.
