about the Gurkhas- 14" Blade 5 Chirra (5 Fuller) Rose Wooden handle Kukri
Probably the mother of all kukri knives on this heavenly earth “Shree 5 Chirra” is the ultimate version of all the existing Chirrawal (with fullers) khukris. The success story of Chirra khukuris, especially the 3 Chirra (Beast) goes far and beyond and reached to a height where KHHI was challenged to introduce yet another superior version of this type to better the better and better the best. Thus Shree 5 Chirra was born to be added as another exclusive and extra ordinary knife to the “Chirra (fuller)” category, to deliver the ultimate power of strength, speed, security and satisfaction. The aristocrat name “Shree 5 (five)” has been chosen to denote the royal class and stature of this amazing knife. SHREE in Nepalese, to honor the khukuri and 5, the royal status and also to represent the 5 x fullers/layers that the knife embraces. The five Chirras in a single body (as seen in the photos); the hardest to forge and craft – display of true craftsmanship - to support the blade in fatal impact by easing the tension created, and the heavy blade backed up by 5 x riveted full tang handle make the kukri a wonder whose beauty and beast like character can only be expressed and explained by the owner and the user himself. - 5 x Chirras/Fullers for beauty and strength - Traditional look and style of an original kukri - Heavy blade yet well balanced by its chirras - 5 x rivets, thick full flat tang wooden handle for strength and durability - Heavy duty bolster and butt cap fitted handle with a lanyard hole - Black normal leather sheath with metallic chape - Since belt loop frog for carriage - Total unpolished finishing for simple yet elegant look and for effective cutting objective. Shree 5 Chirra (General) is truly the commanding Army General of all kukri brigades.
