This “Old Nepali display Khukuri ” is an enhancement of the regular ChainPure Khukuri with a simple yet stunning scabbard, expertly made out of Indian rosewood. Chainpurians use conventional hand tools to craft the wooden scabbard to beautify the overall look of the khukuri. The word “Wooden Sheath” used for the name denotes the wooden scabbard that comes with this kukri knife. While it lacks the detailed patterns of the “Chainpure carved wooden scabbard Kukri ”, this Khukuri still has a beautifully made scabbard that epitomized the concept of understated beauty.

This kukri has few very distinctive features, its notch is closed unlike other kukris and represents the hoof of a cow which is holy in Nepal. The cow is worshipped as God Laxmi (goddess of wealth) and the presence of hoof is believed to bring good fortune and prosperity

The brass pommel in the handle is discarded but replaced it by wood to give even look and secure the tang of the handle. A small diamond shaped brass plate is peened at the end of the tang. The handle is carved with light design for better grip. 

This kukri is one of the oldest kukris found in the village of Nepal. The villagers used the beautiful wooden sheaths to display their khukuri as a matter of wealth and pride.
