This is 10.5" Chainpure Special (Carved) Khukuri. The name of the kukri comes from a village in the Eastern part of Nepal. Chainpure village is famous for the kukri it makes and hence the name Chainpure Khukuri. The name special or wooden is given as per the sheath made for these kukris. “ChainPure Special” is a special Khukuri that has decorative wooden scabbard which is artistically carved with patterns within. These patterns are made with traditional hand tools hence take lot of time in making one scabbard. The word “Special” is also because of such work done in the handle as well. 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. A nozzle is made just in front of the notch, to work as a blood dripper. The Chainpure also has a different handle. The stick handle goes right through and is secured by ace-shaped keeper at the butt section. Some carvings identical to the scabbard is done to give overall matching look. With the carving on the handle and scabbard this kukri is marked as a decorative piece however there is no question in its ability to be used as domestic utility knife or a companion in the field or in the jungle.
