Zoomorphic metal cutters with a more elaborate style are attribuited to the Newari people Katmandu area.

See for an example the 'coupe-lègumes en fer'

 n. inventaire 71.1968.19.27 Musee du Quai Branly (Corneille Jest mission).

It's not difficult to think that this kind of metal items are present in all the nepalese areas with different styles still today never reportered.
