This 12 inch Tri Chandra khukuri is an old army khukuri used by Gurkha warriors during the war with East India Company. Keeping up the traditional legacy of the blade, GGK has reproduced it in modern aesthetics.
Historically then Rana Prime Minister Chandra Shumsher carried this khukuri.
The razor sharp blade of this khukuri is very ferocious for rough and wild use retaining its property for long term durability. Though a little heavy, it is very agile providing more thrust and remarkable force for the acts of cutting and chopping. It is a wild chopper.
The lanyard wooden handle with grooves and ridges provide non slippery and sturdy grip with comfortable handling providing less tensile upon the hand.
The blade is very flexible & provides more power for hacking and stabbing. So this khukuri has been the choice of many army personnel. Also it works as your survival weapon with fierce looks to keep your enemies away from you. The lanyard hole allows a leather chord/thong to go thru that can be tied trough your wrists or belt saving you from losing your survival tool even if it gets slipped from your fist.
This khukuri is used by the Nepalese army till date. It is a real functional weapon for domestic as well as jungle chores.
This balanced khukuri comes in traditional brown scabbard with potholes for two small knives namely Karda & Chakmak. Karda is a small sharp knife which can be used to cut small woods, dig holes, skinning out animals. Similarly, we have Chakmak that can be used for honing the blade and produce sparks .
Karda and Chakmak produced by GGK are of very high quality as they are too made from leaf spring blade compared to others serving the very purpose.
If you want to be a winner then Tri Chandra forged by GGK is no doubt your first choice.
