How To Maintain your Khukuri (kukri) ?
Apply machine/gun oil on the blade of a Khukuri (kukri) at least once a month and every time after use. Make sure not to leave any fingerprint on the blade of a khukuri knife.
Incase rust develops on the blade of a Khukuri (kukri), rub it off with fine sandpaper, clean the dirt using some petrol, wipe it off with a clean cloth and apply oil.
Use shoe polish for the leather case, brasso for the brass fittings and silvo for silver cases.
Both sides of the blunt chakmak can sharpen the blade. However, a sharpening stone is recommended
How to unsheathe your Khukuri (kukri) ?
Do not encircle the scabbard with your fingers while drawing out your Khukuri (kukri). This may cause injury. Hold the upper edge of the scabbard with your palm and fingers and then draw the weapon out slowly. In case the Khukuri (kukri) becomes loose when placed in the scabbard (as the leather may open up a bit with use), push the Khukuri (kukri) forward after tucking in the sheath and pull it back a little when unsheathing
Care should e taken not to expose the Khukuri (kukri) scabbard to the sun for a long period of time as heating may help it to shrink a bit and hence making the blade difficult to insert.
Using the blade of a Khukuri on metllic surface and stone etc. should also be avoid.
