World War (Historic)
A personal favorite of the Gurkhas, the war heroes. This old army kukri model was preferred and used by Gorkha soldiers in World War 2. The documented sources do not really point to the fact that it was issued then but because of its more effective size, shape and weight Gurkhas were individually found widely using the kukri during the war torn days. Particularly it is learnt that Gurkhas used to bring this kukri from their villages when returning back from their official leave. When their official issue got lost, damaged or stolen then it was replaced by this privately purchased (acquired) model.

In contrast, the SiruPate 15inch (Famous), Forestman Pro (YETI), Raw Panawal (workhorse), ChainPure Domestic (new Gurkha Front) have been on the little downside this year but hopefully, they will bounce back next time.
A few others which are very popular and liked by our customers but didn't make into the top 10 list this year but they still rock the top charts now & then...
It's almost a gem amongst the best selling kukris at KHHI since many years, A mini sized knife carried by Gurkha soldiers as their no.2 kukri for training, exercise and as a utility knife for outdoor activities or jungle warfare. The blade size (8 inches) is intentionally reduced so that carrying, using, and working is much easier, swifter and less tiring. The knife comes highly useful in the jungle, trekking, and outdoor activities that involves cutting and surviving hence the name 'Mini Jungle' adequately defines its worthy name. Mostly loved by travelers and trekkers coming to Nepal due to its practical & handy size, it's further modified with additional addons (features) to make it a survival friendly knife.

A common question: Why KHHI products (name, similar products) are so common with other kukri sellers from Nepal? Why ??
The only main reason is they copy everything KHHI DOES and sell them claiming their own design and product. We sell through our TWO official websites ONLY. We do not pay/encourage anyone for fake advertisements to boost our sales. To maintain our product quality, we never needed such scams. We want to spread the GOOD, that we do. We have loyal customers who know and trust us; their words are enough for us.
We have seen many so-called kukri makers/companies, selling in our company name, copying our product name and images. So just be Aware!!
We are happy that KHHI is the source of inspiration to many, but we feel sad when copied exactly and misleading our customers.
Jai Khukuri !!
