Kukri Knives

We have just framed these two Kukri knives which were a gift from our customer’s friend.

We needed a deep frame with spacers all around to hold the glass away from them. Our customer chose a green brushed velvet effect mount, which we put to the sides as well. This has been framed with art glass, which is why there is minimal reflection showing, and the whole thing framed in a walnut frame.

The original spelling and meaning can only be instated by the word khukuri. Kukri is the misspelled word. The khukuri is the national weapon of Nepal, traditionally serving the role of a basic utility knife for the Nepali-speaking Gurkhas, and consequently is a characteristic weapon of the Nepali Army.
