Churi (The Knife)
It is one of the new items introduced by Khukuri House Handicraft Industry under this category. It is actually a copied version of a famous knife made on demand by some regular customers. It has also been made by KHHI to exhibit the skill and standard of the company as one of the best knives makers. The usefulness of this knife goes from domestic to jungle warfare to safari to tactical.
'Churi' in Nepalese means 'Knife'. It literally means a domestic or household cutting too. Nonetheless, it also comes very handy for trekking and traveling. The 5 inch high carbon blade has about 5 inch long full flat tang that goes all the way through the wooden handle. The tang is further riveted to strengthen the handle. 'Churi' comes with a special embossed buffalo leather scabbard with belt loop at the back to prevent scratches etc while drawing in and out. A small leather loop is also made to go around the handle to hold it firmly once the knife is tucked in.
'Churi' knife is a complete and compact mini utility tool at its very best. A metallic chape is fitted to prevent the naked scabbard’s tip from penetrating flesh and also to protect the scabbard. It also gives a fine look to the knife.

I would like to thank the KAMI Ajay who made my Churi, I know it will serve me well. The overall quality is very high, thick spine, well balanced, sharpens well, holds an edge and is heavy. It chops and slices vegetables and meat very well. It also cuts through small tree branches, vines, rope and everything else I have needed to cut easily. The rosewood handle is comfortable in the hand and the sheath is beautiful. It was so pretty that I was afraid to use it because I didn't want to scratch the blade. It is truly a work of art and Ajay is an excellent craftsman. If anyone is looking for a great handmade camping or bushcraft knife this is what you want. I will surely be telling all my friends about your knives and will be ordering another one soon. Thanks again and have a nice day.
