16 Inch Nepalese Chhuri Knife - Handmade Gurkha Kukri Machete
This 16 Inch Nepalese Chhuri Knife is one of the new items introduced by Ex Gurkha Khukuri House. It is actually a copied version of a famous knife made on demand by some regular customers. It has also been made by EGKH to exhibit the skill and standard of the company as one of the best knife makers. The usefulness of this knife goes from domestic to jungle warfare to safari to tactical.
“Chhuri” in Nepalese means “Knife”. It literally means a domestic or household cutting too. Nonetheless, it also comes very handy for trekking and traveling. The 14 inch hi-carbon blade has about 6 inch long full flat tang that goes all the way through the wooden handle. The tang is further riveted to strengthen the handle. “Churi” comes with a special embossed buffalo leather scabbard with belt loop at the back to prevent scratches. “Churi” is a complete and compact mini utility tool at its very best.
