3 Chirra SPL (Guardian Angel)
The ever increasing popularity and demand of the “3 Chirra” version ( 3 x fullers forged in blade) encouraged KHHI into making a similar type but enhanced by modern useful features so a complete and dashing utility knife is achieved, hence the “3 Chirra Special (Guardian Angel)” was born. The kukri knife embraces all that is required to serve and deliver the ultimate satisfaction to any user giving a complete value of money, time and effort. Its an absolute work of art, showmanship of craftsmanship, a piece of machine, a peace of mind and a star of decors. 3 Chirra Special would indeed be the 1st and only choice for buyers who seek for an decisive kukri knife that cuts mercilessly, ensures safety, looks fearsome, is simply functional and most importantly delivers durability and guarantees.
3 Chirra Blade
10.5 inches blade with 3 x fullers makes the knife the ultimate chopper. Good length coverage that can take down a reasonable sized object. Fullers give good support to the blade and to the bevel/edge easing out the tension generated in the edge while striking against hard surface. The fullers also work as an “I Beam” to cut down some unnecessary weight of the blade making the knife easy to use and light to carry. It is also very hard to forge and to make in the wavy format that needs to be done by very skilled craftsman only. The shape of the blade is forged broad for weight within so that it does not shudder while striking.
A complete new protective cum comfortable handle is fitted in “3 Chirra Special (Guardian Angel)”. The handle is not only strong and durable but also provides much needed protection and firm grip (easy handling) needed for safe use. Its composition is full flat tang secured by epoxy and reinforced by multiple rivets from both sides. Unlike other kukri’s guard, here a “L” shaped guard is used which comes as an extra precautionary measure to ensure that the using hand always stays where it should. This different looking guard also adds uniqueness and lethal look to the kukri. The end portion/style of the handle is also an added feature of the knife where even a larger hand can get very comfortable and painless hold since poking problem like in the traditional handle is completely avoided. The lanyard cord can also be fixed through the see-through hole at the tail of the tang to tie the kukri around the user’s hand.
Black buffalo hide sheath is made for the kukri knife having a brown leather frog for carriage to suit the wooden handle of the 3 Chirra Special. A shoe lace is also tied at the top of the loop of the frog to tie the handle in order to prevent from wobbling and for easy carriage. White metal rounded tip is fitted in the tip of the sheath for an appealing look.
Why Guardian Angel??
In Nepal kukri knife is more than just a mere knife. It has significant religious, cultural and historic values and carries the country’s pride. It is regarded as a protector of the possessor physically and spiritually. There is a belief in Nepal that a kukri knife would scare away demons, evil spirits, enemies and adversaries and always safe guards its owner. With these myths and beliefs going strong as ever it may not be a bad idea for the “3 Chirra Special” to be entitled as “Guardian Angel” for the very reason mentioned above to possibly play a role in encouraging and stabilizing the mind and mission of the carrier at all times.
