Background
The greatness of KHHI that makes it stand out from the crowd and ahead of its competitors is the superior quality and services it provides and also the effort it puts to always come up with wide range of varieties from the very modern ones to the very traditional that would suit every walk of life. KHHI in the process of growing and specializing into the field has modernized its production activities yet continues the primitive way of making that has become a legend and recognition of a kukri. In the same manner, "All-by-Hand BhaktaPure" khukuri(as the name goes) is yet another exceptional knife added to KHHI's huge selection of khukuris where 100% bare hand is put to use to making this one of a kind kukri. The forging, cutting, hammering, pounding, shaping, sizing, filing and finishing etc, everything is entirely done by hand. Unlike other kukris of KHHI where final finishing is done by a bench grinder, this BhaktaPure khukuri sees nothing but a pair of expert hands, artistic head, dedicated heart, full sweat, and hard labor. This particular laborious and time consuming way of making a khukuri now only exists in the very remote villagers where facilities are short and thus makers are reluctant. However KHHI with a view and intention of having an all out all-by-hand khukuri for those who seek for Man over Machine (anti machines) khukuri started its production in this method to continue the legacy of the authentic Nepalese khukuri. For this KHH has put up a small work place in the northern part of Kathmandu in a place called BhaktaPure where this khukuri is made, and thus the name.

Khukuri
A typical village version; fatter blade with rat tail tang, carried by farmers, porters, hunters, villagers, travelers in the far hilly regions of Nepal. Its shape goes board at the mid section and goes narrow as it finishes towards the tip and handle section. It has a wooden handle strongly secured by two metal fixtures at the two ends; Bolster (Kanzo) and Butt Cap (Chapri). The blade is carbon steel and is well tempered by judging the color of the heated steel in the right time by the skilled craftsman. The whole knife is unpolished/raw and even the hammering marks are visible. The final finishing is as what it comes out from the various flat and round files the maker uses it to get the job done. Even the final check-up (quality test) by KHHI staffs before shipping is achieved by files (so NO machine at all - right from the start till the very end). The kukri is made to use so everything is done as per it to ensure that no users is left disappointed.


The Maker Himself
The man behind the BhaktaPure is Mr. Chakra Bahadur BK who has been making khukuri since the tender age of 8. He was born in Bhojpur VDC in lower class family where making khukuri has been there lively wood since generations. He has a wife, three kids and a mother back home in his village. Now employed by KHHI and settled in BhaktaPur, he delivers his magical skill in the form of the BhaktaPure khukuri that he was born to make.

We appeal all our visitors and buyers to buy his creation and thus in the process support him financially so that he could make a decent living and look after this family well.

Lastly, this all-by-hand BhaktaPure khukuri made by the very skilled craftsman will without a doubt please all kinds of users.
