2019-20 BSI Service Kukri (Current Issue)
As the name suggests this is the Current service Kukri of the British Gurkhas of the year 2019-20. These are made better and more strongly made by KHHI Nepal for public procurement. Both the kukris are pretty much the same as the last year’s having almost the same dimensions. After the official system of issuing 2 kukris for one soldier started in early 2000, all the models have been very identical except for little minor detail in shape, size, and weight. Free gift items are included with this kukri to make your purchase more meaningful.

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.

A contemporary innovative model having very broad chest and upper sharp edge for thrust and impact unlike other hacking knives. The shape is a beauty + beasty combination of a kukri and Bowie. The major strength of the Scourge is its ergonomically carved handle made to perfectly fit a human hand. The fingers and palm in hold position perfectly blends with the contours and corners of the handle as if like wearing a glove. The handle is well suited for large and med-large size hand.

We will keep you updating.
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 !!
