GURKHAS PERSONAL SERIES (Optional)
Gurkha Army has been using the Personal (optional) Khukuri since the war days and is being more popular among modern Gurkha soldiers today. This category is a collection of these types of Khukuris that are widely used and liked by the Gurkhas. Although not the Official Issue, these khukuris are among the personal choice as they are easy to use because of their blade shape, size, and features. The original issue is mostly kept safe for special functions and a piece of pride for their whole life; here is where the optional khukuri comes into the action. We have seen the Gurkhas using their secondary knife for combat training and field use. These second-choice khukuris are made to perform better than actual ones and are used mostly used for rough tasks.
We also have to say that the official issue blades are not made up to the quality as they are purchased at low prices from the bidding system; hence the boys seek a stronger and more durable khukuri. They often customize their khukuri to fit their physique. Khukuri House has been the first choice seller among the Gurkha Brigade for buying these optional blades for both quality and customization.
