Gurkhe (Bodyguard);  a celebrated kukri knife >>

Historic info / background / name of this Kukri
A sort of tribute to the legendary Gurkhas and their famous kukri knife. A Gurkha is well known for his loyalty, courage, and ferocity and so is his kukri he owns and uses as the most feared and trusted weapon and a tool.

This “Gurkhe” Kukri comes as a celebration of these two iconic bodies and represents the duo in the best way possible. A dedicated Gurkha standing as a bodyguard with his kukri knife hanging from his waist is the best scene one can imagine when you are a victim of an offence (terrorism). When you are in the wrong time at the wrong place, a Gurkha and his Kukri can be your savior. 

The remarkable success of the raw black bladed version encouraged and influenced the creation of this unique kukri with even more benefits and features added. Gurkhe is a desire to handcraft an outstanding and exceptional executioner to meet a user’s tall order and to safeguard him at the same time.

The name “Gurkhe” is given to denote a typical Gurkha who would die to defend and to guard his honor, duty, and territories, and hence the title “Bodyguard”. It’s a worthy name chosen to denote and refer this knife to the legendary Gurkhas, their caliber, and their amazing persona.


Features/ attraction of this Gurkha knife

The Blade

  • 8 inch raw black blade = to camouflage rusting (should there come) and for extra hardness (strength)
  • Large elongated bevel = to inflect deep cut and lethal blow;
  • 8" blade= handy, mobile, easy to use yet enough coverage to undertake decent tasks;
  • World war version blade = effective and balanced shape with easy operation (in and out)

Handle of Gurkhe


  • Extra thick Brass fixtures = durability, lasting, and matching; also easy to maintain (rust-free)
  • Full flat tang with twin rivets = heavy duty work, resilience, power, strength, long lasting
  • Horn ridged handle = strength, good look, sturdy and firm grip, dry (not slippery) handle, easy and effective handling 

Scabbard/ Sheath/ Dap

  • Belt loop = Dual carriage, belt-cum-thigh; waist (hip) level in belt or thigh level in thigh
  • ​Lanyard facility = to tie around thigh/knee portion to grab and prevent from wobbling
  • Cut throat = extra distinctive look
  • “G” farus (frog) = to represent Gurkhe, its name
  • Belt strap = to hold the handle (blade) tightly. Ties the kukri strongly to the scabbard making it very easy to carry even in speed motion

Use/purpose>> This 8” Gurkhe synonyms the great Gurkhas with its excellent qualities and advances is an awesome kukri knife to carry and hold, to swing, to be with at all times, be it dark or light – to save, protect and defy an enemy’s attack and nature’s fury. It's both; a knife to cut and a tool to perform.

Awesome kit

Just received my kukri today. Out of the box it is shaving sharp and in great condition. Thank you Ajay Magar you did a fine job! I tested my bodyguard kukri on chopping thick bamboo as well. It sliced through it cleanly. It is balanced well and comfortable to use! Another fine knife!

Thank you for reaching out, I've been meaning to contact you.

Your customer service is outstanding, and I could be happier with my Gurkhe(Bodyguard) Kukri, Craftsman Ajay Magar (Laure) did a fantastic job!

Thank you very much.

P.S. I was pleased with the shipping time also.

Respectfully, Joseph "Clint" Strickland

It's not basic artisanal handicraft for tourists, your items are real stuff!

Dear Saroj,

Today I received the package from you with the 2 kukri knives and 1 stand. What can I say? They are EXTREMELY WELL MADE and LOOK ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!!!  You said I would like them and it is true! They actually look much better than I thought. The stand is also nice and elegant. My Gurkhe is exactly what I requested and even more than I hoped for.

The Jungle Panawal for my cousin (the Afghanistan veteran) is also great! He will certainly like it very much. I can't wait to give him this gift for his birthday.

I have already two other kukri knives from you that I ordered back in 2014, one for me and the other was a present to my son. They are also very good items.

Saroj, you at the Khukuri House are doing a very good and serious business. From the quality of your products, customers can see and feel that you work hard for these products. It's not basic artisanal handicraft for tourists, your items are real stuff!

Saroj, when you have the time (but there is no hurry), we can start thinking about the Military Budhume project that we discussed about earlier.

Best regards,

Radu Ciumara
