Hello my friends - You asked me to write something about the Khukri that I won recently, so here is my attempt.
My name is Travis. I am 32 and live in San Diego, CA - USA. I've been collecting khukri's for about 15 years now, so I think I know what is good quality and what is junk. There is a lot of junk out there, but Khukri House of Nepal is certainly not one of those!All I can say about these magnificent knives is WOW. The extremely thick blades are high carbon that will take and keep a razor edge. The brass fittings and water buffalo grips give it a warm, sure grip that almost seems to mold to your hand. When it comes to chopping power and general utility, the Khukri cannot be beat in my opinion.
I am also part of a large group known as the SCA (Society for Creative Anachronism Inc.) This group is dedicated to preserving the true nature of medieval times and living. We dress up of course in "period" attire, we prepare food and entertainment, and even stage "fighting" in the same form that was practiced hundreds of years ago. These events are usually camping trips for most of us 4 to 6 times a year in the US. My personae is that of a gypsy (1400 Romanian). There is strong evidence that the gypsy culture originated the east toward Burma and Nepal. This is further supported do to the fact that the Khukri is still the primary shape for the knives used by the gypsies that later settled in Romania and other Slavic parts of the world.Hence, why I carry 2 on my own person when I am at events. I carry a Service Issue #1 khukri for basic camp chores and a custom war kukri for live steel demonstrations of fighting techniques used by gypsies.In closing let me just say that I plan to do more business with Khukri House of NEpal. I am extremely satisfied with their quality of workmanship and their customer service. From start to finish of my first order, they were generous, courteous, efficient, and very pleasant to talk with. If you truly want a fine, durable, practical working or show kukri, get it here. I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
Sincere Regards - Travis C. Masters, USA
Today I have recieved the kukri's thank you very much. They are beautifully handcrafted and really honour the ghurka's and nepalese traditions. In due time I 'll test the kukri's in the field on a survival trip. I am fully confident that they perform well and are very capable and magnificent field gear.When I am back I will contact some of my friends in the army and geological survey to make them enthousiatic. I have also some contacts with outdoor vendors whom might be interested to add them to their knive collections in their retail shops. I will let them contact you directly.
My best regards Drs. Martin R.H.E. Peersmann, Res, Cpt. 101 MID cie 1st DIV NL

I have just received my khukuris today and i have to say that i couldnt be more hapier with the product. This is probably the best item that i have purchased to add on to my field gear to use in future deployments. Even though i have only just received it i know that this work of art will stay with me for a very long time throughout my career in the proffesion of arms,and i have to admitt that i have already learnt to appreciatte it for i know that my and like every other ones that you have made is unique and individually hand crafted by skilled craftsmen. In writing this i would just like to say thank you for your speedy, professional and excellent service it has been a pleasure and i would definetely recommend my fellow soldiers to purchase a khukuri through khukuri house for i know that they will not be dissapointed by the product or the craftsmen ship, once again thank you and please update me with any new products if u can.

I just received the two knives (Rancher and Brown Bond). I purchased the Bond for my son and he could not be more pelased. The Rancher is better than I expected. We are now trying to decide on our next choices, I know one will have custom work for my son. Thank you for your attention to detail and fine workmanship.
