Religious Symbolism of the Kukri

* Paul's Note:  The best kukris are made in India and Nepal, where they are typically prayed over and dedicated to false gods.

As a Christian I always ask God to remove any curses placed upon my Kukris, in Jesus Name.  I further God to annul any covenant or sacrifice or dedication to any Pagan God, concerning my kukris,  In Jesus' Name. Amen.

The religiously inspired characteristics of my Kukris, are changed, as well. The notch (kaura) in the blade near the hilt, is removed fully or partially.  The shape the handle is modified, the "butt" is slimmed down, and the raised ring removed.  The finish of the blade is dulled, and the metal cold-blued.  I remove the metal tip from the sheath.

I am not interested in using any tool that is dedicated to false gods.

If they really bother you, then do not buy a Kukri, or at least one from India.  One American one  Ontario Knives SP2502 Spec Plus Kukri.  (Look around for best price.)

What are you talking about removing?

Look at the area just in front of the handle.

 

Observe below how this has been removed.

 


 

Of a surety, these were two different Kukris, but the example is clearly visible.

As I first began to work with the Kukri, I began to write about it.

Have written so much about the Kukri, and my opinions and favorites have changed so much, this "master" index is needed.  By no means complete, hope it leads to some clarity.

The day I came to the LORD, before I knew what a vision was, I saw myself walking through a devastated United States of America.  You need to accept Jesus as LORD and make what preparations He would have you make.  This site has basic only, survival information, hence the name Survival Primer, or beginning teaching book.  Most of the information has been gleaned from the internet.  The entire site, Survival and Christian, is saved to a single CD disk  that you can own.   The Christian teaching is from my church, and is original to it.  God has changed my life through the ministry of my church. God will change yours, through Jesus Christ, if you let Him.  My prayer is that God lead you into all truth, and that the abiding love that is expressed through His Son, Jesus Christ, come to rule and abide and infill your life, perfectly. Paul.
