The blade is 10" and mirri polished. The handle is of traditional style and made from Rosewood with some carving, fittings of Brass is used. The stick handle goes right through and is secured by ace-shaped keeper at the butt section. The wooden handle is carved beautifully to match the scabbard and make the kukri more special and unique. The scabbard is of Rosewood and carved by hand. It also has Brass banding and tip.

This Chainpure Kukri 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 the sheath. The sheath is expertly crafted from Indian rosewood and brass. The rosewood panels are painstakingly engraved with traditional patterns by experienced craftsmen in Chainpure village. These patterns are made with traditional hand tools hence take lot of time in making one scabbard.

Although it is usable, it is made to be a decorative kukri that showcases the masterful skill of the Chainpur villagers. The scabbard is made from of hand-carved wood panels secured with brass accents.

Chainpure kukris are typically a village kukris. The open notch that we see in most of the kukris are discarded and instead made a see-through hole in the shape of a cow’s hoof. The notch whether open or closed resembles the cows hoof, since cow is holy in Nepal so is its hoof. The hole or notch also symbolizes the “Symbol of Fertility” believed by Hindus as the holy sign of Lord Shiva. There is a strong belief that the notch brings fortune and prosperity.
