The “Chainpure” is named after the hometown of Chainpur village in the Eastern part of Nepal where this knife is exclusively made. The kukris belonging to Chainpur are slimmer and lighter, this is made to work and carry easy. Since the kukri is an everyday household tool for the farmers, this lighter and slimmer kukri is swifter and mobile for them, hence the name, Everyday Domestic khukuri (Chainpure)


Blade: The blade has beautiful patterns along the upper shoulder and has sharp (pointed) peak to match the overall look of the knife.

Handle: The Chainpure also has a different handle. The regular metallic bolster is discarded and replaced by an ace-shaped keeper to secure the tang at the butt section. Fine contours of the handle also provide easy and stronghold.

Sheath: Sheath is kept traditional, made with buffalo leather and holds karda and chakmak.

Notch: The notch of this kukri is made different, like a see-through hole in the shape of a cow’s hoof, which is regarded holy in Nepal.

A nozzle is also forged just in front of the notch to work as a blood dripper. A ChainPure kukri is made for domestic utility use, nevertheless having a blood dripper is no harm when blood really has to be shed.
