It is one of the new products introduced by KHHI under this category. It is actually the copied version of a famous knife made on demand by some loyal cum regular customers of KHHI. It has also been made to exhibit the skill and standard of the company as one of the best knives makers, and also to enhance its product variety range. The usefulness of this knife goes from tactical to jungle warfare to safari to domestic.
“Chuppi” is a local word in Nepalese that means a sharp pointed knife (head portion) mainly used for stabbing, offending etc. It literally means the harsh/strong version of the knife that is used against the enemy to assault. The front portion of the blade is made similar to that of a “Chukuri” with its back curve area equally sharp like belly intended for lethal application. The 5 inch hi-carbon blade has about 5 inch long full flat tang that goes all the way through the horn handle. The tang is further riveted to strengthen the whole fixture. The exclusive designated curves and contours of the knife give a perfect sturdy and easy grip to the handle. A lanyard hole facility is also in place; for a leather thong to go through it and round the using hand’s wrist.
“Chuppi” comes with plain black “Codura” fabric scabbard with belt loop at the back. A small loop is also made to go around the handle to hold it firmly once the knife is tucked in. The traditional wooden frame is tucked inside the fabric to firmly and safely hold the knife.

We have come across too many companies claming themselves to be genuine manufacturers of kukris which is in fact all untrue and we condemn such activities. We would therefore appeal all our visitors/buyers to be aware of such scamps and be extra cautions when buying online. After all, we want you to get the real things from the real people.
