Chainpure Wooden (Simple)
The Chainpur village in the Eastern part of Nepal where this knife is made has their own exclusive khukuri called the “ChainPure” named after their home village “ChainPure”. Similarly “ChainPure Wooden” is an enhancement of the regular ChainPure to make the knife even more special and exclusive by crafting a simple yet stunning scabbard out of Indian rosewood expertly. Chainpurians use conventional hand tools to craft the wooden scabbard to beautify the whole look of the khukuri. The word “Wooden” is used for the name is denote the wooden scabbard of the kukri knife.
SCABBARD >> Although it is usable (fully functional blade), it is basically a decorative khukuri that represents the true craftsmanship of Chainpur, that is especially made to décor a place. The scabbard is skillfully crafted out of wood and brass fittings are wrapped around to give a handsome look. The general look of the kukri is plain but has a style of its own that appeals an eye for at least a glance.
its unique NOTCH (kaudi) >> This typical village khukuri knife has a distinct notch unlike others. The open notch in most of the knives is discarded and instead made a see-through hole in the shape of a cow’s hoof, which is holy in Nepal. The hole or notch also symbolizes the “Symbol of Fertility” sign (the OM), when the blade is held upright, believed to be holy as it signifies the great lord “the Shiva. Since all ChainPures are “Hindus” the unique and religious notch is believed to bring good luck, fortune, prosperity and salvation. A nozzle is also forged just in front of the notch, to work as a blood dripper. A ChainPure khukuri basically is a domestic utility knife for the ChinPures but having a blood dripper is no harm when blood really has to be shed.
HANDLE >> Chainpure also has a differently made handle which distinguishes the kukri from others. The regular metallic bolster is discarded and replaced by an ace-shaped keeper to secure the tang at the butt section. Fine contours of the handle also provide easy and strong hold. Here the handle is crafted simple to match the simply yet attractive looking scabbard.

In old days and remote places, Kamis (blade maker) even had to make sheath to fit a khukuri whenever sheath maker (Sarki or Dabbe) was not available. In such cases he would make a simple wooden sheath out of waste wood and whatever local materials he could find. He would prepare an ordinary (makeshift) sheath to house the knife so that its easy and safe to carry and keep (leave). This gave birth to this type of khukuri.

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.
