ChainPure (Domestic) Khukuri ... highly preferred by new Gurkha Soldiers for battle fronts

“ChainPure” named after their home village “ChainPur”, these domestic kukris are slimmer and lighter version rather than the heavy types since using and carrying works better and easier with it. Since a khukuri in the life of a rural farmer remains with him in most of his life and his livelihood a lighter, swifter, and more mobile khukuri would make his life and job much easier. Moreover, he is always overwhelmed with loads so a light and handy khukuri would not cause any problem to carry along. This is the main theme and benefit of this "ChainPure".


ChainPure kukri NOTCHThis kukri has a modified NOTCH instead of a typical kukri notch. It has a see-thru hole that is in the shape of a cow's hoof. Cow is holy in Nepal and there is a belief that cow's hoof brings good luck and fortune. It also signifies the “Symbol of Fertility”, the famous Hindu "OM" sign of lord Shiva, when the blade is held upright. There is a nozzle just in front of the notch to work as a blood dripper. Though a Chainpure is mainly a domestic kukri purposed for field and woods works its also a survival (defend-attack) knife at the same time. The blade has beautiful patterns along the upper shoulder and has a sharp (pointed) peak to match the overall slender look of the knife. Light yet effective and efficient - less stressful, easier and faster handling - very mobile widely used for all kinds of domestic and household job/task that needs cutting, slicing, hacking, peeling, etc.

The HANDLE of ChainPure is another strong aspect of the kukri. It is crafted bit different than a typical khukuri handle one knows. It's made simple yet elegant. The bottom section is more flared up in both sides. This assist in providing stronger grip. Also the regular butt cap is replaced by an ace-shaped keeper to fix the tang at the butt section. This gives a distinctive look to the Chainpure kukri. The regular curves and contours are crafted in the handle for easy grip and elegant look.


chainpur during 1970A very little is known about the Chainpure kukri's HISTORY. There are no documentations, images  or even old photos showing the khukuri. It's obvious that the kukri was either not popular or was yet to come into existence in those old days or perhaps was used in a very limited scale in limited places with very little human access. The knife probably originated around the 1950s but nothing stern to confirm this. The kukri went popular and got the attention that it deserved only after the 1990s after the standardization of the kukri market and accessibility of various Medias. Moreover, the appearance of the kukri in the hands of military personnel and in various actions in recent years skyrocketed the popularity of the knife in no time.

Size of blade: 10 inch approx.
Materials: Water buffalo leather scabbard, Indian rosewood handle, 2 x small knives 
Origin: Chainpur, far Eastern Nepal

 

ChainPure as new Gurkha Knife...

Of late ChainPure khukuri has become increasingly famous amongst the new Gurkha soldiers. Thus this knife is frequently seen used in exercises, training, and even in combat zone as an option knife. It is probably due to its sharp shape and comfortable handle it is highly preferred by the soldiers as their secondary knife. The chainpure also facilitates stabbing which makes it more suitable for combative purpose.

Gurkhas prefer the Chainpure khukuri in various sizes and the same is offered here in BLADE and HANDLE variants. Please feel free to select your preferred size. Also to provide more variants along with the various ADD-ONs there are options of "Panawal version" and "Guard in Handle" which are very useful features for the knife. PANAWAL makes the handle strong, durable and gives good counter balance to the blade whereas GUARD makes the knife very safe to use and gives a fine look. 
 

Here are some of the pictures showing Gurkhas posing and enjoying their moments with the Chainpure Kukri.

In one famous incident in 2010 in West Bengal, Bishnu Shrestha from the 8th Gorkha Rifles of Indian Army welding a ChainPure kukri in his hand neutralized several dacoits killing 3 on the spot. He also managed to save a victim from being raped by the gang.

A beautiful work of deadly art I love it!

I just wanted to say thank you very much to you and your team of amazingly talented people your blacksmiths are true artisans. My new addition the ChainPure Domestic is honestly breathtaking I absolutely love it the quality is spectacular with all the charm that only a handmade product made with pride can give. This is my third Khukuri my last two being a service no1 and a custom year of the dragon Khukuri that I had ordered back in 2012 the service No1 particularly served me well during my service as a rifleman in the Australian Army. I've had many knives in my past 9 years of service. but none ever impressed me as much as my Khukuri did especially in the jungles of Tully North Qld. The Khukuri is pound for pound the most hardworking knife I've ever seen and handled for that matter. Mine was definitely put to good use from chopping wood to splitting bamboo and even at times used as a machete to clear paths in the jungle when I didn't have a Cain knife handy. The Khukuri just smiled and almost beckoned me to swing it harder and harder every time blissfully chopping away at whatever was its target. Just before I discharged from the Army, I decided to Gift my service no1 to a good friend of mine and while I felt good about giving such a gift to a great friend, I never realized that one day I would miss having such a dependable weapon. And thus, I remembered Khukuri House and immediately started my search for yet another super dependable Kukuri. I then stumbled upon the story of Bishnu Shrestha and his amazing fight against the 40-man gang on a train and his words specifically "Fighting the enemy in battle is my duty as a soldier. Taking on the thugs on the train was my duty as a human being." is what led me to find and select the ChainPure as my new Khukuri of choice. I will finish by saying this again I love my new khukuri this one will never leave my possession and I hope to pass it on to my daughter one day for her to one day pass on to her children. Thank you all very much.

KUKRI ART WITH PERFORMANCE

THIS IS MY SECOND KHHI KUKRI. THIS KNIFE LOOKS SO GOOD,I WAS GOING TO MOUNT IT ON THE WALL. HOWEVER , I ENJOY USING IT ,EVENTHOUGH I HAVE TWO OTHER MAIN USER KUKRIS. FOR SOMEONE WHO ONLY GETS ONE KUKRI, THE CHAIN PURE WOULD BE AN EXCELLENT CHOICE. LIKE MY OTHER TWO KUKRIS, I CONTINUE TO BE IMPRESSED WITH HOW STRONG AND WELL MADE THEY ARE. I AM VERY HAPPY TO OWN THIS KNIFE. SINCERELY TOM LABASH
