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.

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.

full tang and a bit longer.....

Speachless.... this is a impressive blade which will have a special place among my blades. It will also come to use when needed. I got the full tang version and the blade is well balanced because of it. (intricat but simplistic) Truely a weapon and tool to enjoy.

At first I was skeptical due the lightness of the khukuri. (I had the feeling the newer models or, all the models of khukuri at least which I purchased, are very light and may be unable to meet hard work demands. I thought this would be like trying to use a feather as a machete). However, I was wrong. In the tradition of the khukuri it chops very well to clear a patch and can actually skin very well due to it’s sharpness. This Kukri is light and not so wide, but it is potent nevertheless. I am extremely happy with it because it’s ability to swing fast, built up kinetic ergy to it’s drop bound, no rebound itno the handle is what makes it an outstanding tool. Well done to the makers of this khukuri.
