History, the beginning.

Every industry has its own history, we have ours too.

The story of Khukuri house started with the motivation of making quality kukris to be supplied to British Gurkhas. Ex-10GR Mr. Til Bahadur Bishwakarma after retirement from Gurkha Army joined Gurkha Reserve Unit, Brunei. In his 10 years of service he was disappointed with the quality of khukuri that was supplied to recruits. Officials wanted Mr. TB BK to supply them with better khukuris after finishing his terms in Brunei as they knew he had the ability to do so. With the support from officials Mr BK was determined to save the name of the khukuri that was almost in the verge of extinction. He joined hands with Mr Lalit Kumar Lama Ex - 10GR who was asked to supply some khukuris to the recruits in British Gurkhas Nepal (BGN) who was as well embarrassed to supply low quality kukri from the local smith. The joining of two hands led to establishment of KHUKURI HOUSE (KH). Their venture was successfully executed and later in 1991 they realized the need to establish the factory and a showroom so that khukuris can also be promoted to the local market. Thus Khukuri House was formed in March of 1991 and encrypted itself in the history as the first genuine khukuri company in Nepal.


After the great success in more than 18 years Khukuri House was handed over to the younger generation of the founders. Though the founders Ex -10GRs Mr. Lalit Lama and TB BK continue to supervise, support and assist the ongoing business, the major roles has been taken over by younger generation.
Mr. Saroj Lama Tamang , younger son of Mr Lama successfully operated the “Khukuri House” however he is someone looking towards height, he started  four online e-commerce sites for over 4 years and now established “Khukuri House Handicraft Industry” (KHHI) in the heart of the Industrial Estate of Patan. Mr Saroj Lama is the sole proprietor of KHHI and operates KHHI with his technical and production team. This industry is established to reinforce better quality, committed customer service and larger production. He aspires to take Khukuri to different parts of the world and bring its story of history and glory to the world.

KHHI Trademark
Technology has made our life easier however it has made it difficult too for some. Our images from our website has been misused by many competitors copying the picture and claiming that the kukri is originally their product. Unfortunately, we do not have strict cyber laws for online vendors. Hence, all our kukris are now stamped with our logo (official trademark) to distinguish ourselves from the rest. We hold responsible for only those kukris that are stamped. Please ensure that you buy genuine kukris from a genuine seller.
