OCA Nepal Merchandise

Dear OCs
As you may know, OCA Nepal was officially established few months ago. We are now trying to grow by collecting funds for our association as well as doing something for the school.

imageTherefore, we created a souvenir, which will be for sale during the school fete    [UPDATE: Venue for showcasing, sales and ordering of Khukuri, an OCA Nepal merchandise, has been moved to: Marina Hotel, OCA Dinner, 8:00 p.m., 30 September 2016. If the Khukuris run out, please place your orders through Mr. Ajay Thiara, Secretary, OCA.] this OC Week 2016, that signifies Cottonian-ness as well as Nepali-ness. Please do have a look and spread the word.

It’s a 10” blade, standard British Army size, usable and displayable KHUKURI with BCS and OCA emblems. It comes with a leather sheath and a wooden stand.

Sent only 15 pcs for now as a trial run. It will be available, but may take time, AFTER OC Week 2016 as well.

Priced at INR. 10,000/- only, out of which, INR. 3,000/- will be go to school and the remaining will go to the merchandise’s cost and OCA Nepal fund.
