What is a village khukuri?  These are khukuris made for local use in Nepal for chopping, digging, hammering and the many other uses required for rural living.  They are roughly finished but incredibly tough.  They are made by village kamis who recycle leaf springs, pieces of railroad rail, and other steel that will forge into an incredibly strong blade.  They will vary greatly in style and size as can be seen in the pictures of typical examples below.  

Thes early 'villager' models sold by Himalayan Imports were not made by BirGorkha, and had a guarantee on blades, but not handles . Many of more recent 'villagers' are made by BirGorkha kamis in the style of khukuris used locally.
