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. This overall length 25 inch version is going to come in at about 1/2 inch thick and about 2.5 pounds. Sometimes wood, sometimes horn handle.
