Scabbard is made of yak-leather  which got two pocket  for two small knife ”karda”  Sharp one is for small type of work like skinning the animals, cutting paper etc and “Chakmak” blunt one is for sharpening the blade. This kukri can be used to cut meat, wood, firewood, bone, clearing bushes etc. The notch (kaura or kaudi) in the blade near the hilt of most khukuris serves as conduit for the blood on the blade to drip out, thus preventing it from soiling the hilt, as well as a device for catching and neutralizing and enemy blade.
