Saroj,

I have been traveling for the last couple weeks so I didn't get a chance to email you but I wanted to thank you and your craftsman for my latest knives. I appreciate your help as always. I'm sure I will be in touch soon with another project. Have a great day.

Dear Saroj,
It's a success!  Our KHHI shipment arrived in excellent condition about an hour ago.  We are just about speechless. 

Allie opened the box and unwrapped her Savior first, and then I unwrapped my Chaos and followed by the Kydex scabbard.  Allie says it was like opening her first Christmas present ever.  Now she is wearing it on her belt, intermittently parading around the house and hugging me, saying "I am so happy; I seriously can't stop.  This is the best thing I ever got!"

We both appreciate your service as well as the craftsmanship of Shree Krishna and Bhim Bahadur.  Please thank them for us. 

Both of our handles fit our hands very well. 

So far, I find that the kydex sheath works best when set up for the left hip but worn on the right.  This is because the khukuri can then be unsheathed by drawing it forward through the sheath's side opening so that the blade edge does not scrape against the belt attachment fastening screws.

I can feel what you meant by the forward weight of the Chaos.  Any greater weight in front of the handle would be too much.  I can scarcely detect where the extra metal was removed to rectify the situation.  So, good job!  The traditional sheaths look very nice.  We are quite pleased, and we declare today a day of gratitude and relaxation. 

I will teach Allie a bit about knife fighting, insofar as I am a student of the Filipino arts of stick and knife martial arts. 

Probably at some point I will want to purchase a more traditional khukuri for myself, for everyday use.  Something along the lines of an actual service khukuri, or of the variety used around the house in your country.  

Again, thank you.  And be well.

 Namaste,

Hello KHHI, I just wanted to say thank you for your amazing customer service and quality! I ordered 2 blades from your website while you were celebrating DASHAMI, and on the first Monday that your shop was open (October 9) you confirmed my order and told me that the knives should be in the mail in a week, which was great. However your amazing Kamis got my orders done sooner and I received a package here in Springfield, MO from Nepal on October 13th!!!! Unbelievably fast and very well packaged too. I have forged and sold my own blades in the past, also I have owned Khukuri from several other companies.

Right now I own 10 varying from 16"- 18.5" long and 19-34oz. I use them to split seasoned Oak for the fire place in winter time and building shelters while camping. They are my favorite style of blade because of their practicality. The small EDC blade I gave to my son and he absolutly loves it, the kydex sheath needed a small tweak with a heat gun but now it locks in tight and is easily carried. It is a very, very handy design and now i wish that I had ordered two.

The Barun Tri Angkola pictures on the site really intrigued me, the beautiful chirra and extra wide edge combined with a 13.5" blade and only 21.8 oz....and still a full 3/8" thick spine! I felt like it had to be an amazing chopper, when it slid out of the package it was more that I had hoped for. Fit and finish were fantastic, very sharp edge and the balance just begged to be used....so I went to an Osage Orange grove and started cutting :) Not long ago a piece of seasoned Osage bent up the edge of one of my Khukuri from another (well respected) Nepali company. I understood because this is extremely hard, dense stuff. I took the Barun Tri to the same limb and started chopping, it bit so very deep into the hardwood! After a dozen hard snap cuts the limb was chopped and all my edge had to show was a single, very tiny (as in I had to shine a light on it to see) bend maybe 1/8" long.

Thank you KHHI for this Khukuri, it sings in the hand and I am grateful to own it. You have a customer for life and I will share my review!

Mr Saroj,

Hello and I hope this email finds you in good health. 

I am writing to let you know that today, April 27, 2016, I have received the two knives I ordered from Khukuri House Handicraft Industry
1. 6" Jungle PLUS (Heavy Duty)
2. Jungle EXTRA (Woodlander)

I am completely satisfied with the construction quality of the two knives and the scabbards. I consider the scabbards works of art, they are exquisite. The knives and scabbards are exactly what I was expecting. 
I am also especially pleased with the packaging for shipping.  It was clear by the condition of the box that the parcel was banged around during shipping. However, due to the high level of care taken during packaging they arrived without incident or damage.

My concern with the shipping is this; In this part of Canada (British Columbia), DHL passes the shipping responsibility to Loomis Courier Service and they don't deliver to where I live. Their information says they do (so does virtually every other courier and delivery service around here) but NO ONE except United Parcel Service delivers to where I live. Initially I was told I had to drive to Kelowna, 70 Kms away, in order to pick up my parcel. I insisted they bring the parcel to me and they brought it to the Loomis Courier depot in Vernon, 20 Kms away. Otherwise I had no issues with the shipping.

In the future, when I order something else, is there a shipping option to have DHL pass the shipping responsibility to United Parcel Service once the parcel is in Canada? By the way, United Parcel Service uses the same initials (UPS) as the United States Parcel Service (they use UPS or USPS) so it is easy to get confused.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Dave Meise

I received my order today and I can tell you I will be ordering more. I was surprised at the quality of both the blades and the sheaths. I would like to thank you so much for my order. I will be proud to use these and will gladly tell people where and who made these fine blades. I also work for the U.S. military and will use one of the at work.

Thanks Again, Joe Plocica, USA

Dear Saroj,

My Limbuwan Tribesman khukuri arrived, today. I am not surprised that I am very impressed. It was very good of you to make me a second "copy" of what otherwise would have been a "one-off". I very much appreciate your consideration. Thank you!

This khukuri is everything that you said that it was going to be. It obviously is a big knife but its handling characteristics are excellent. I can begin to see how this design has stood the test of time. This is my first khukuri that was made by Tilak Bahadur Biswakama. Based on the workmanship that he put into this piece, I sincerely hope that it will not be the last.

It was also very good of him to get this piece out with a wedding looming ahead of him. Fathers of daughters can have a tough time under such circumstances.

Thank you, again, for excellent service
Sincerely,
John Schedel, USA

Oh, my.  I am embarrassed.  I include the messages below only to remind you of all you did to hold and reschedule delivery of my order around our November trip.  I received a message advertising a new offering today and immediately realized I had not thanked you after the knives arrived.

The knives arrived two days after we got back from our trip, so your timing was perfect.  We were unpacked and all was put away, so the arrival of the order was a whole new beginning.

Your craftsmen continue to create absolutely stunning knives.

The Bowie is a monster, yet at the same time a beautiful piece of work.  It was originally designed as a serious fighting knife with other utility use secondary and little thought, I believe, to beauty.  Nevertheless, created by the proper hands it is a true pleasure to look at and those to whom I have shown it are usually speechless for a moment, followed by “Wow!”

The two Khukuris are of course your usual standard of functional soul in a body of art.  The Immortal leaves me speechless when I show it to someone!  All I can say is, “Just look at this!”

I hope your craftsmen receive the feedback your customers send – it must be recognized – skill and talent in such things are far beyond me, but I am very happy to possess the results of their work.

Some health issues have delayed my preparation of proper display of all, but I have the materials and the plans, so all that remains is my part of the work.  ?   Oak frames, burgundy red velvet cloth background, and magnetic attachment of each knife so no clips or supports are visible.  That way, the knives may be easily removed and handled.  (Two 35-pound magnets will be used for the Bowie!)  The scabbards are of course to be displayed in the same frame as their knives – a small piece of metal inside the scabbard allows magnetic attachment there, too.

And, a very late thank you to you for working with me to make sure things flowed smoothly.  It is very much appreciated.

Regards,
Bob Fiegel
