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 30 inch overall length knife is going to come in at 1/2 + inch thick and will weigh around 3.5 pounds. Don't get it unless you are physically fit and strong.
