THE MAKING OF KHUKURI

KHHI has always led the way and this is yet another outstanding way to show how we do simple but special thing that really matters. KHHI enhances its production system by introducing a new concept of giving a face to a product by introducing its maker. With this new initiative, each khukuri will be shipped along with its maker’s bio-data with his signature and thumb print so that the buyer can know about the maker of the knife which he ordered. He can get an up-close glimpse of the maker and perhaps share a special bond with the knife and its maker in the process. The buyer can admire at his knife and appreciate its maker for all his hard work, skill, time and sweat. Please note that the maker’s initial is either engraved in blade (near peak) or in handle (on rivet).

Benefits of introducing the maker are:
