Service Kukri (Current Issue BSI)
As the name suggests this is the Current Service Kukri of the British Gurkhas of the year 2022. 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.

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.

Mini Jungle Khukuri
Mini Jungle has bounced back in this list becoming one of the best sellers in 2022. A mini-sized kukri for household purposes, and outdoor/jungle activities and also used by Gurkhas due to its practical size. This is an all-time best-seller at Khukuri House, and also the most-sold kukri from Nepal. It can be your first choice if you are looking for a budget price and searching for a functional kukri.

6inch Jungle (Sweet)
Yet another contender enters the top list. A small domestic utility tool, highly recommended for camping and trekking. HANDY n FUNCTIONAL.. Short blade and light weight means handier to swing, to cut compared to its larger counterparts. Although small it carries enough weight needed for cutting, chopping, clearing etc; a perfect piece of practical proceedings.. :)
It is the best selling blade in Mini version.

AITIHASIK (Gorkhali Sainik)
Very Popular both in the history and the present due to lightweight, and practical shape with a good 13 inch blade and can be used as a solid jungle utility knife like a machete. This is the replica version of the original issued in 18th century. This khukuri resembles the history and glory of Nepal; the many wars that the brave Gorkha people fought for the unification of Nepal and beyond. The glory of Gorkha, Gorkhas, and Khukuri started from this era…

Panawal Dotted (Supreme)
The first and foremost choice and recommendation when it comes to useful, handy, strong khukuri its the Panawal Dotted. There is no second choice or opinion. It's the Supremo of Khukuri House and the best seller as always.
“Panawal Dotted” was the first PANAWAL kukri done by Khukuri House in 1989-90. It is actually the source of all sorts of Panawal kukris found these days. The revival of this khukuri in modern world has its own story and has bounced back strongly.

KHHI Bowie (with PWR HMR)
The popularity of this Bowie forced us into making the newer version. Its awlays the best seller since its release in 2014. The power hammer is the major attraction of this bowie and it is the most reviewed product at Khukuri House.
a MUST if you are planning a trip away from home; CUTTING n HAMMERING go together...

All-by-Hand BhaktaPure (Chakra BK)
Commonly known as 'Bhaktapure', this khukuri is the real and purest form of the khukuri made in the ancient days when modern machinery wasn't available. This authenticity is the USP of this khukuri and is loved by the real khukuri users. Chakra BK the man himself became an identity and brand from khukuri. Back in the best selling list is doing well where the machine is killing the skill and art of the craftsmen.
where 100% bare hand is put to use - forging, cutting, hammering, pounding, shaping, sizing, filing and finishing etc; FORGED in FIRE..

Regimental Army Kothimora (Honor)
Costly fancy and decoratives khukuri are not much sold as they rarely come into use. But at KHHI it contradicts the market due to the quality and originality in this product. The blade is fully functional not just a showpeice and the sliver sheath is made from pure silver not white metal which is commonly found is market at cheaper prices.
Here KHHI quality stands out to bring this khukuri in top selling list.

Chainpure Domestic and Sirupate Slender were in the competition for the list but they missed out on a narrow margin, these khukuri are popular among the new Gurkha Soldiers as they want to take a different field knife during the combat training.
2022 was a year of mixed bag when it came to most sold khukuris as we saw many changes in the list. We assume it was due the effect of posts on different the social media. Thanks for everyone sharing our blades and leaving a review, recommending to your friends and families.
Next year we will come back again with the updated list till then..Keep Khukuring' .. Keep knifing'...
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 !!
