Gurkhe (Bodyguard);  a celebrated kukri knife >>


Historic info / backgrund 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 wrong time at wrong place, a gurkha and his kukri can be your savior. 

Story behind the name >> The remarkable success of the raw black bladed version encouraged and influenced the creation of this unique kukri with even more benefit and feature 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.

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.

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,

Namaste,
