A great number of Khukuris are produced in the eastern part of Nepal, mainly in Dharan, where the beautiful shape and form of the Khukuri are specially hand crafted and designed. The making of a single knife keeps four men fully occupied for an entire day, sometime even more. All raw materials such as steel, brass, wood, buffalo horn and hide and other things are first carefully selected and only the best are utilized. Then only the actual process of making the Khukuri start. Most of the craftsmen make the Khukuri in their own home. It requires four ment to make each blade. First of all, a skillful craftsman measures the length, weighs the steel and by the help of helper he is able to give an accurate shape of the Khukuri. A skillful craftsman only does it by beating and hammering the red-heated steel again and again. Everything sharpening, tempering on the edge of blade and shaping the sheath are done by hand with carefully and only the machine is used to lather for shining the Khukuri.
