The maiden visit of VCs (Agan Singh Rai, Lacchiman Gurung and Ram Bahadur Limbu) to Khukuri House Handicraft Industry in May 1997 was a big boost to the company. The visit was one of the major events in a decade of business. Khukuris were thoroughly inspected and admired by the war heroes and further recommended to be of the best quality. KHHI also sponsored a lunch program to honor the VCs. They were presented khukuris as a token of gifts from the owner. The event was a big success and KHHI will always remain grateful to the war heroes for their visit and priceless contribution to fame the Gurkhas, Nepalese and Nepal as a whole.
