What is Lahure?

Gurkha Army Soldier back home in Nepal are locally called 'Lahure' or 'Laure' rather than calling them 'Army' or 'Soldier',  likewise called 'veteran ' or 'serviceman' in the west. But the history of the word lies more backdated connected to Lahore city, where people used to go for better earnings.

 

How 'Lahure' Khukuri evovlved?

After completing the 9-10 months of training in Catterick, UK, depending on their skill, performance, education, and other personal qualities, the Commander selects them for a particular unit of 1RGR and 2RGR. Furthermore, they are chosen to undergo jungle training in the dense forest of Brunei. Before departing for this oppressive environment training in Borneo Jungle, boys come back home. During this period they visit KHHI to buy a stronger and better khukuri for this jungle training. They know well that the official issue is not strong enough to withstand the harsh wild jungle conditions, also they don't want to damage and lose the official version, hence they opt for new khukuri for rough use. This is where the 'Lahure' khukuri comes into existence.     

Each year when Gurkha boys visit us, everyone has their custom requirements mostly on the size, finishing, and sheath. Mostly they want raw and strong blade, and undamageable sheath, matching the jungle look. Understanding their requirement we at Khukuri House decided to make and release this new model. We believe that this khukuri will solve the problem of finding the right one and will be an easy pick, keeping the Gurkhas' spirit alive.  

 

Blade & Sheath explained

The blade is made similar to the 'Singapore Jungle' version with Chitlange blade profile, raw black finishing but maintaining the standard shape and size of the official issue.
Green micarta is used as a handle material, to match the jungle conditions and keep it undamaged in any weather conditions, where horn and wood cannot provide this flexibility.
Again, the sheath is made from an unbreakable and durable Green Kydex sheet to survive rough jungle conditions. The sheath is further wrapped with 2mtrs of paracord to add both beauty and functionality to the overall khukuri and its purpose.

 

Where it is used?

During infantry training in the jungle of Brunei where you can hardly move 100mtr in 30 mins, guess how tough you and your weapon need to be..this is where 'Lahure' Khukuri comes into action to hack the way of the Gurkhas and safely complete their mission. 

We also would like to wish you all the best and safe training. WE SALUTE YOU ALL !!

 

P.S. Don't forget to ask for a 10% patriotic discount for everyone in Uniform, exclusive at KHHI.
