Khukuri of the Month
- Khukuri Gallery
Small museum & showroom about Khukuri, Gurkha, and Nepal
Started on 18th Sept 2019
The gallery is a part of KHHI nepal’s unit 2 which is also a conservation campaign like the Primitive Making. The objective here is to provide in-depth information about the Khukuri to the general public. We aim to educate and aware people about the significance, development, history, conditions, and various information related to khukuri. This conservation move was important to create interest, curiosity amongst the people and to raise a special feeling of respect and admiration towards the knife.
Khukuri is more than just a knife...it is our national pride, an icon and more importantly our identity hence a substantial action to preserve was necessary which is well addressed by the opening of our gallery. Worse, khukuri has been a victim of modernization, negligence, bad attitude, social stigma, and various business issues due to which of late the maker numbers have significantly dwelled affecting the production and in the future may vanish completely. Thus a project like 'Khukuri Gallery' was important to sustain khukuri and its legacy to the public and for the new upcoming generations.
Donors Segment >> your generosity will be honored forever in our gallery...
Anybody who is willing to help us financially is heartily welcome! We need support in this endeavor as the gallery is a lifetime project. There is a piggy bank for petty donations which are well registered in a donor's book. Similarly for donors donating USD 100 (Nepalese Rs 10000) or more we have designated a special place that is highly visible in our Special Room and his/her name will be written in golden color forever.
Likewise, people wanting to donate their historic khukuris are most welcome. The khukuri would be displayed with respect on a stand with a brass display plate mounted on the stand showcasing the donor’s name and country in our Special Room. Our utmost gratitude and special appreciation will always remain for all the donors.
Here we would like to clarify that NO amount will be misused. The amount will be personally handled by Mr. Saroj Lama Tamang (SLT) who is the founder and MD of KHHI Nepal and under whose initiation Unit 2 is established. Mr. Lama will regularly email the donor on the update and status of the donated amount clarifying where and how the donation was used.
