the 3 Chirra Kukri (BEAUTY and BEAST knife; the BEST seller)
Nicknamed as 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 latest and strongest additions of KHHI into its amazing product line, this kukri is a pure work of art at its best. The knife is the hardest to craft done only by a very skilled craftsman as he has to work on the three fuller/layers in the blade-panel that serves as the strength provider, shock absorber and is also designed to take out the unnecessary weight of the blade as in the I-BEAMS concept. The crescent like forging in this kukri unlike any others makes this knife so special as it adds beauty and beast like character to this knife.
The ‘Beast and Beautiful‘, 3 Chirra for hardcore kukri fanatics and users.
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 flat surface as it absorbs the direct impact felt by the edge of the blade. 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 that might be lost during the finishing/polishing process and also to make 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 perfectly executed to meet the demand of the heavy blade. The flat tang of the blade which can also be seen on the sides of the handle goes all the way through the handle and is fitted to the butt cap. The tang is further riveted to the handle to enhance the fixture. It has a 5 inch long handle to support the blade.
3Chirra (Beast) comes with a normal leather scabbard but the tip is ignored so that it does not hurt a user when is carried in the waist. A lanyard hole is also fixed at the tip of the scabbard so that a string can be wrapped round thigh area for easier carriage.
Karda (small knife) and Chakmak (sharpener) are discarded to lessen over all weight of the khukuri.
