What makes Khukuri House (KHHI) so special ?
We at KHHI belive that our factory, raw materials, kamis, making process, quality control, business ethics and mostly the passion in khukuri makes us special. We are specially known for hand forged kukri knives from Nepal.
Khukuri House with the change in the name for growth and dedication, now particularly known as KHUKURI HOUSE HANDICRAFT INDUSTRY is set up in the capital city (Kathmandu) to substantially increase production, upgrade quality and to monitor a number of small factories KHHI has in east Nepal. Besides this, the main objective is to standardize the khukuri industry that has been running locally in grassroots level and also to provide kamis the better opportunities and facilities. The main speciality of KHHI is to have its own manufacturing industry in the heart of capital city, fully registered under the Nepalese Governments Terms and Conditions.
We would like to bring to your notice that KHHI is the only company (first) in Nepal that runs its own factory and is directly involve in both manufacturing and retailing sectors (directly selling to customers).
Khukuri House Handicraft Industry vows personally to bring worldwide recognition and respect to the historic khukuri knife and its commitment to uplifting the status of Kamis financially and socially. KH now known as KHHI was established with an objective to improve the quality of khukuri, save the name of khukuri and give worldwide recognition to this most feared and legendary knife so we at KHHI put in our every effort to produce the very best quality and give excellent services to achieve this objective.
The Quality/ making process (handmade/ hand forged)
Everyone from laborers to staff to owners (ex – Gurkhas) work hard round the clock tirelessly to produce quality khukuris that would not only serve a buyer effectively but would also earn respect and admiration from the user. A marvelous piece of craftsmanship that would live up to the legacy and fame of the khukuri that it carries and appeals to the world. We use the finest and strongest raw materials that are locally available and are also imported from India when necessary. Raw materials are checked, re-checked and selected before they are finally put to use. Kamis then do what they do the best; expertise within that has been passed down to them from generations; they turn a raw material into a real masterpiece. We make sure that our khukuri are made in a very traditional ways (hand forged, hand made ) by using only basic tools so that we can keep the tradition alive and that the khukuri remains as pure and distinctive work of art that is completely hand crafted. Top quality and maintaining traditional methods despite of all the emerging modern technology have always been our prime focus. The finished products are also checked and tested several times over before they are finally approved for selling and exporting. All the making process undertaken by KHHI is very traditional, the same old method that has been handed over from generation to generation within the kamis. See KHHI Quality process in detail.
Blade-smith and khukuri forging is religion, tradition, livelihood, everyday life and above all passion and expression at KHHI. Making quality khukuri is a very laborious and time consuming that requires a great skill, hard work and endurance. Craftsmen at KHHI despite all these hurdles undertake their job skillfully and sincerely. A single khukuri demands 3 kamis to work for 3 long days to have it achieved into what we call at KHHI a PERFECT khukuri that claims the hallmark of the authentic khukuri. The making process goes through painstaking step by step process from weighing to heating to forging to chising to tempering to filing to sharpening etc each step executed brilliantly and systematically. It is a pure team work, done by the professionals who have earned the fame and honor as the "Born khukuri makers".

The two things that distinct KHHI with others are the price and quality it offers; price is low yet the quality is high!
KHHI is able to reasonably lower its prices because of the bulk purchase of raw materials, huge production and effective management.

Similarly bulk purchase in a regular manner sustains massive production even at the critical shortage period in the market. KHHI has the ability to produce more than 500 high quality khukuri per month and its excellent handcrafted khukuris start from US$ 9 onwards.

CNC @ KHHI
CNC @ KHHI is used for custom-design of modern kukri/knives
KHHI has come a long way and seen a tremendous growth since its first establishment as KH (Khukuri House) in 1991. Initially as a retailer and wholesaler and later as a mass manufacturer of high quality Khukuris and Knives, it has gathered a great deal of knowledge, expertise and has experienced a dramatic growth and has been able to successfully distinguish itself as a world class maker of original Nepalese khukuris and international knives. KHHI in the process of working as a manufacturer has also realized the importance of having minor and major machineries along with skilled and highly qualified manpower (craftsmen) to develop and to deliver our services professionally on both fronts; Quality and Quantity. Thus over the years KHHI’s vigorous research, knowledge and competence has successfully implemented CNC machines to aid in its production and further improve its capability and reputation as a branded company. The usage of advanced machines has vastly helped the custom-design department and modern kukris/knives that require high accuracy, precision and demand. Likewise, we are very proud to announce that we are the ONLY company in Nepal and probably in the world to use cnc machines to execute the making effectively and expertly. Here we would like to clarify two things:
- We ONLY do the profiling of the khukuris and knives with CNC machines and rest of the work of art is all done by hand by our skilled Kamis
- We use this process ONLY for customize orders and modern khukuris that need to be very specific and precise
Lastly, we would like to announce to all our visitors, buyers and stakeholders that we undertake both process of making; the Traditional (forging) and the Technology (profiling) hand in hand with 75% of our knives being manufactured in primitive method handed down from generation to another. Machineries have been introduced to aid production, quality and accuracy ONLY BUT not to replace the primitive handmade method. As a company, we are growing and adapting with the ever changing time and technique since we or any other company for that matter cannot always rely on its manpower and his resources YET we continue our legacy that we are recognized and renowned for. This is actually an example of a company that rises and flows with the time yet keeps its feet on the ground.
We use this process only for mass manufacture, customize orders and modern khukuris that require high accuracy, precision and demand. We only do the profiling of the khukuris and knives with CNC machines and rest of the work of art is all done by hand by our skilled Kamis.Share
