The famous ChainPure kukri with beautifully CARVED wooden scabbard adorned by brass binding defines the kukri ..

This Chainpure type having a carved wooden scabbard is an improved version of the regular ChainPure Kukri. While the Kukri is the distinctive Chainpure blade type, what makes this blade special is it's scabbard. The scabbard is skillfully crafted from Indian rosewood and fitted by brass bindings on all sides. The rosewood panels are artistically carved with traditional patterns by experienced craftsmen in Chainpure village in the East. These patterns are made by traditional hand tools and hence needless to say it takes a lot of time.

KUKRI as a whole ...
The blade is 10" and mirror polished in ChainPure format. The handle is of traditional style and made from Rosewood. It has some carvings in the center of the handle and fitted by thick brass sheet in the form of bolster. The stick handle goes right through and is secured by brass ace-shaped keeper at the butt section. The carved wooden scabbard and handle go well with each other making the knife very special, unique and attractive. Although the blade is very much usable (same steel and making process as regular ChainPures) it is made like a decorative kukri that showcases the masterful skill of the Chainpurese. This khukuri graces an ambient and also makes great gift to your near and dear ones.


What is a Chainpure kukri ??
ChainPure is a typical village knife. The open notch that we see in most kukris are replaced by closed one with a see-through hole in a rough shape of the letter "U". This is the distinctive feature of the ChainPure khukuris. The notch actually resembles the cow's hoof since cow is holy in Nepal and in Hinduism. The notch also symbolizes the “Symbol of Fertility” believed by Hindus as the holy sign of Lord Shiva, the "OM". There is a strong belief that the notch brings fortune and prosperity. Function-wise it works as a blood dripper. The ChainPure kukri has slightly different type of handle shape at the butt which is more flared and pommel is completely ignored. The blade has sleek, pointed blade profile with more pronounced peak (jooro). ChainPure falls under slim and light family.
