Hello. I just uploaded a video about my knife and thought I'd send you a link. Thanks again. I'll be ordering another knife in December or January.

Hi, 

I read your article on 'Kamismith in danger' and wanted to share my thoughts on your knives. I have owned your Panawal Special (McCoy) for over 10 years and it continues to be my most prized possession. I still remember the day that I took it out of the packaging and marveled at its handcrafted beauty and the savage utility of such a blade. In those 10 years it has been my companion on many hiking trips from Alberta, Canada to Utah.

I have hand sharpened it as a double bit with the blade near the handle razor sharp and an more shallow axe blade on the rest of the knife. With this, I can cut a log, split it by batoning method and make shavings for a fire with a single tool. I can say with confidence that with my Kuhkri, a box of matches and a small pot I can comfortably survive in the woods.

I remember a few years ago, I worked with a co-worker who was a die hard knife enthusiast and outdoorsman. I told him about my Khukri and he was intrigued but was not aware of the true magnificence of it. Finally I brought it in to show him and he was literally speechless in the presence of this knife. The rest of the day, every time he walked by my desk he would just look at me and shake his head.

I wanted to share my story of my knife in hopes that it may be shared or used to promote the craftsmen that build these amazing tools. I have since bought a smaller Jungle Mini and convinced a friend to buy another model and also bought one for my Father in Law to use while hunting.I was disappointed in reading this article that these men are treated with low regard in Nepal society. In the US, craftsmen of this level would be lauded by the outdoor community in the same way that the other local custom knife makers, boot crafters etc are.

When I ordered my Knife I had Khukuri House engrave my name in the blade and I take pride in the fact it will be my companion for as long as I live and even after my final days it will always be known that it was I who wielded such a blade. 

Sincerely,

I Love It. I wanted this to be able to use when I work and camp and it has done an excellent job. I have hacked away at some Oak trees that grow native in Oklahoma and I have not even noticed a slight ding in the blade edge. I bet this could cut a railroad track!  

The only thing I wasn’t impressed with is the saw back on the spine I asked for not wasn’t what I was expecting but now that I see it I wish I had just not asked because it was not needed. 

I also spent some time on your website after I received my knife and I was disappointed that I did not educate myself on some of the features you do provide. Much like the cross hatching for a non-slip surface where your thumb rests and getting an upgraded frog so that I can wear it on my belt at different angles.

Hello,
I’ve been reading about kukris in general and watching video reviews. As you know, I own many of your products; and I want to say that each one is special.

There seem to be two classes of people buying kukris – those who are traditional and those who are not. I am not traditional; but I do spend a lot of time deciding on what type of blade will best suit my needs based on design and usability. The only blade I have ordered from you that may be somewhat outlandish is the heavy bowie; and I bought two of them. I will admit that many designs are not what I personally would find useful. But that is simply my preference. Everyone is different.

On the other hand, some folks have given your company a bad name. They say you cater to the western tourist mentality. While some of your designs may do that, it is up to the buyer to decide what appeals to him.

There are thousands of knife makers in the world today; and most of the designs being produced seem to be expensive works of art that are not suitable for everyday use or else they are worthless junk. I have knives from all parts of the world. Some are expensive and some are not. But each knife is something that is well designed and useful and well-made regardless of how much it cost.

Every knife I’ve gotten from you is a treasure; and I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate them.

A letter opener, 4" knife, a pair of 10 inchers, and a really massive 16 incher. I should have checked the weight better on the big one, lol. Its a bit much, but all are sharp and beautiful. Hopefully i can chop some things this weekend, that'll be fun. Thanks to all the fine craftsmen at khhi for this beautiful bundle of happiness. Really pleased and happy.

Blessings and Namaste to you Saroj.

I just received the knives in the mail (sooner than expected!) and first want to thank you and your craftsman Rajkumar for creating two beautiful pieces. Overall I am incredibly happy with the service, and the quality of craftsmanship is remarkable. THANK YOU!!

I do have a question and also need to bring your attention to a couple (very small) inconsistencies from what I ordered.

My question is about the chiseling on the 3 Chirra: It appears that only half of the tip was chiseled. Is this common practice or was this a mistake? 

Second, the Biltong 5160 was supposed to have a chiseled tip and zimping on the spine, which it did not come with.

Third, I had ordered the stand in black but it came in a natural color.

As I mentioned these are all rather minor issues, but do differ from my order, so I felt obligated to reach out to you about them. Overall I am incredibly happy, and honored to have these beautiful pieces from your artisan and company.

Thank you Saroj!

Namaste,
Theo Badashi

Hello from Southeast Texas,

I received my knife today and just wanted to email you guys and tell you what a fantastic job Ajay did on the knife. I absolutely love it, the Kydex is a little tight getting the knife out, but I’m sure it’ll break in with use. Thank you guys so much for your patience, your guys do fantastic work, and I will be ordering from you and Ajay In the future.

Thank you again so much!
