the 3 Chirra Kukri (BEAUTY and BEAST knife; the BEST seller)

for hardcore kukri fanatics and users; for peace or at war.. domestic or deadly usages

Nicknamed 'the BEAST', it truly is a deadly looking kukri, a beast like character that would mercilessly torn its prey into pieces in matter of seconds. One of the late comers and strongest additions of KHHI into its amazing product line, this kukri is a pure work of art at its best. 

 

Blade; the major Strength & Attraction

3 Chirra BEAST KukriThe crescent like forging in the blade that must be well executed to make this kukri special and unique as it adds beauty and beast like character to the knife. The blade is the hardest to craft done by very skilled craftsmen due to its exclusive fuller (chirra in kukri terms) feature. The maker has to work on the three fullers/layers in the panel of blade that serves as the strength provider and shock absorber. It is also designed to take out the unnecessary weight of the blade as in the I-BEAMS concept.

The 3 x fullers combination gives heavy durability and endurance to the blade that is needed while performing heavy duty work and for using for a longer period of time. It also gives the needed support to the edge as it absorbs the direct impact (tension) felt by the edge when cutting. The shock wave is minimized as it travels from edge to panel to spine. This cushioning to the edge by the chirra (fuller) supports the tension created in impact. It is also a display of true craftsmanship as it is the hardest to craft.

The blade is further only unpolished to better its cutting ability by retaining maximum hardness. The long polishing (shiny) machinery process may take away the original hardness so it is avoided. It's basic finishing also makes it look traditional and attractive. The blade is 12 inches long (not too long or too short) for better coverage and better balance; an ideal size to maximize the output.

The handle of this kukri is another strong point that is perfectly crafted to meet the demand of a heavy blade. The thick flat tang of the blade goes all the way through the handle and is fitted to the butt cap. It can also be clearly seen from outside. The tang is further riveted to the wooden scales to secure the fixture. The tang also gives good counter weight to the blade for easier handling. It has a 5 inch long Indian rosewood handle.

3 Chirra (The Beast) comes with a normal leather scabbard but the tip is ignored. This is done so so that it does not hurt a user while carrying (prick). Instead, a lanyard hole is fixed in order to tie a string around the thigh area for secured carriage. A belt loop (frog) is attached to carry the kukri vertically from waist. 
Karda (small knife) and Chakmak (sharpener) are discarded to lessen the overall weight of the khukuri.


Materials /Features: Water buffalo leather scabbard, 3 x riveted FULL FLAT tang Indian rosewood handle, three fullers/layers

OUR APPEAL >>
the '3 Chirra (The BEAST)' is a prized collection and one of the most amazing kukri 'The Khukuri House (KHHI Nepal)' has ever carried. We are the 1st to create and introduce to the Khukuri Market. Needlessly to say it was/is well accepted by the people and in no time many copies were found all over the market. On one hand, it does feel nice to see people following you but on the other hand, it simply destroys the market and worse people get the inferior quality which gives a bad impression of the knife. Hence we appeal all to be very cautious when buying online and save yourself from fake kukris and disgraced sellers.

MAGNIFICENT !!

I have received my 3 Chirra Khukuri on 5/27/2023. It is truly MAGNIFICENT. I have ONLY PRAISE for this Khukuri. I have been involved with handcrafting numerous items for many years. This has given me a great appreciation for the work of another hand crafter. The Steel Smith that made my blade is Mr. Mangaldhan Biswakarna. Sir, you are not only a Master Bladesnith / Craftsman but an Artist in steel. THANK YOU for your wonderful work. I would like to THANK Mr.Lalit Lama ( 10th Gurkha Rifles ret.) for his involvment in such a fine company , KHHI, and for his Military Service to the free world. I would like to THANK Mr. Saroj Lama Tamang (SLT) for running such a fine, reliable company and for finding such fine craftsmen. Finally, last but not least I wish to THANK Mr. John McCurdy of the U.S.A. Depot for getting my Khurkuri, to me, in 3 days. It was so well packaged that I believe that it could have been delivered airborne without the use of a parachute and still arrived undamaged. I highly recomend this Company. I am sure that you will be COMPLETELY PLEASED no matter which knife you choose !! Respectfully Submitted -- Ernie Tschanz

Over a decade of use

I ordered my 3 Chirra in Feb. of 2012. When i received it I was very very happy with what I saw. A sturdy, well made Knife that felt great in the hand. For over a decade it has been with me on many camping trips, hunting trips and been a trusted tool that has always excelled at its job. My son is now old enough to receive this trusted blade from me as a gift to accompany him on his adventures. I look forward to my next purchase to aquire its replacement. Thank you for over ten years of hard use.
