** Joint collaboration between KHHI Nepal and Mike King, UK **

I am deeply honoured to have been given the opportunity by the Owner and Managing Director of KHHI, Mr. Saroj Tamang Lama, to help design and name his exciting new release, the "MK-Patriot General Service Issue" Khukuri. For all KHHI already have an extensive range and styles of Khukuris and are well known for their superior quality blades, I decided to design the MK-Patriot for practical use in remote or hostile environments and aimed at Military personnel and other such organisations or individuals who spend their time working within the Survival / Bushcraft field of operations. My past experience as a former member of British Army Special Forces has led me to believe that a good solid well built knife is a must when working or training within these remote / hostile situations but because of the numerous and differing amounts of tasks that can be undertaken when working in these environments, I also believe that there is no one knife that can perform every task without compromising weight and space! With this in mind, I have designed the MK-Patriot to be as near as possible to the perfect all round general purpose utility bushcraft tool whilst at the same time retaining the traditional shape and features of the Nepalese khukuri!I chose the name for this new release, MK as these are my initials and PATRIOT because this represents for me my own strong personal feelings of patriotism for My Queen and Country, but also to represent the brave and loyal Gurkha Soldier for whom the Khukuri is both a national symbol of their Country and The famous Brigade of Gurkhas whom they have served with distinction for over 200 years.


BLADE: The MK Patriot has a 12" blade that is constructed from well polished 5160 high carbon steel. It is skilfully hollow grind with a deep fuller to give the blade strength combined with balance which feels good in the hand whilst at the same time reducing the overall weight. The thickness of the blade is only 7mm at the ricasso and it has a distal tapered gently curved spine. It is 64mm at the widest point of the blade giving it enough weight to be used as a serious chopping implement . It is finished off with a unique shaped cho / kaudi.

HANDLE: The handle is constructed and carved from unpolished Indian Rosewood (for a better grip ) and is fitted onto the blade with a stick tang for strength and durability and secured at either end with a Brass bolster and end cap. The handle itself is slightly curved in the traditional way which helps reduce wrist strain when in use and it is complemented by a nice decorative brass binding round the centre of the handle

COMPANION KNIFE:  I have included a very practical  6 3/4" long companion / back up knife with this khukuri made from the same materials as the Mother knife with the blade being 4mm thickness for strength and durability. This smaller knife can be used for the many smaller bushcraft tasks such as skinning, gutting, carving, whittling, and slicing. It sits firmly in a housing pouch in  the lower front section of the scabbard for ease of access

SCABBARD:  The scabbard is very nicely made from wood covered in quality brown Buffalo embossed leather hide in the traditional Nepalese shape. It also has a handle retaining strap for better holding security of the main Khukuri

All in all, I fully endorse the whole concept of the MK Patriot and in my opinion, it is large enough to carry out most bushcraft duties, chopping, slashing, battoning, and most other tasks, but at the same time small enough to either stash away inside your back pack or Bergen or even attach to the outside for easier access or attach to your waist belt without being too much of a weight issue, A must for anyone who ventures into the Great Outdoors.

Exelent Knives!

Today I finally got your item! It is a pity that he arrived late and did not become a gift to the old soldier on Father's Day, but, given all this worldwide sabotage, I do not want to blame you. After I took these wonderful knives in my hands, I forgiving you EVERYTHING! lol Given the conditions in which you work and the price, I evaluate the quality of workmanship in a solid five stars! It is hard to believe that the knives are made without the use of metal cutting tools, the treated surfaces look so perfect! I especially thank Master Arjun Baraili for the excellent work! Namaste and best wishes for a long and happy lifes! P.S. (So ​​far, the only thing I don’t like is the cheaply made scabbard. Not only is it not genuine leather and is constantly smeared with paint, the scabbard does not inspire confidence in their safety. I keep all my knives perfectly sharp and have already been cut once when the blade cuts through scabbard! I consider this an unforgivable negligence in the design of these scabbard - it must be SAFE!). But to knife manufacturers still five stars!

Truly a masterpiece

I received two blades today this being one of them. This is one of seven Nepalese kukris in my collection; and I'm not done by a long shot. I've already given two to family and friend; and my grandson will receive two more. The quality of construction is superb both the knife and sheath. I collect many knives; but my favorites are all from Nepal. The craftsmen are among the best in the world and more so considering the conditions under which the blades are made. This is not the first nor the last kukri I will purchase. Thank you.

I love this knife

To everyone at the Khukuri House, you are real craftsmen I am so proud of my knife. If I had the money and the space in my house I would buy eveything you make. You are the real deal and you all deserve credit and recognition. The beauty that your knives give money can't buy, but luckily for us we can buy them, long after we have left this planet your knives will be passed down from generation generation, you have made history. Thank you.

This is mine, purchased from the first batch, showing it's practical effectiveness in use. I love this knife. The configuration of the scabbard is also unique and can be easily slipped on and off without unfastening your belt. I have tested this blade in numerous woodcraft and bushcraft applications and am totally satisfied. The very excellent companion Karda is nicely positioned on the outside of the scabbard instead of the traditional position between handle and your body.
