ChainPure (Domestic) Khukuri ... highly preferred by new Gurkha Soldiers for battle fronts
“ChainPure” named after their home village “ChainPur” this 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 a 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 life and job easier. Moreover he is always overwhelmed with load so a light khukuri would not be a problem to carry along, this is the main theme of the ChainPurs’ ChainPure khukuri.
This kukri has a modified notch, instead of a typical village kukri notch this one has a hole that has the shape of the cow hoof. Cow us holy in Nepal and there is a belief the hoof of a cow brings good luck and fortune. It also signifies the “Symbol of Fertility” when the blade is held upright. There is a nozzle just in front of the notch to work as a blood dripper. Though this is a domestic kukri but also can be used as utility knife in field and in jungle hence the blood dripper becomes essential. The blade has beautiful patterns along the upper shoulder and has sharp (pointed) peak to match the overall slender look of the knife. Light yet effective and efficient - less stressful, easier and faster handling - widely used for domestic and household purpose.
The handle of Chainpure domestic is made simple yet elegant. The butt cap is now replaced by an ace-shaped keeper to protect the tang at the butt section. The fine lines are carved on the handle for easy grip and elegant look.
Size of blade: 10 inch
Materials: Water buffalo leather scabbard, Indian rosewood handle, 2 x small knives
Origin: Chainpur, far Eastern Nepal

Hand crafted by an artisan through KHHI
Less than one month delivery. Took it out for a test drive today after honing it a bit out of the box. Didn't need much to get it to where I wanted it. Did some hacking, some chopping, some limb cutting and some small sapling cutting. All the wood is frozen here. This is a great bush knife and cam in perfect condition, including sheath, Karda and chakmak. Also did some draw-knifing. Excellent results. Read the website description of the knife and the village, Chainpur in north east Nepal, where this design originates. Thank you, Suraj BK for this flawless creation.
