KHHI never fails to honor the bravest of the brave, this British Gurkhas Victoria Cross Khukuri is a tribute to the war heroes who gave everything in their line of duty. “VC” stands for “The Victoria Cross”, the highest award of the United Kingdom honours system. It is awarded for gallantry ``in the face of the enemy`` to members of the British armed forces. We will always remain grateful and gratified to these great people for giving us our identity and national pride. They are the true heroes of Nepal. “We salute you all”.


Blade: A famous “World War” version is picked for this noble purpose. This 11 inches blade displays 8 Gurkha VC holders ( 4 on each side) to pay our tribute to these brave war heroes. Each of them has their own valiant tale and unimaginable military sightation during his duty at war.

The names are given as follows;

  1. VC Ram Bahadur Limbu,
  2. VC Lachhiman Gurung,
  3. VC Gaje Ghale,
  4. VC Kulbir Thapa,
  5. VC Tulbahadur Pun,
  6. VC Agansing Rai,
  7. VC Ganju Lama and,
  8. VC Thaman Gurung.

In the hand of these fearless Gurkhas, World War became a formidable and often victorious knife that an opponent had to face against reluctantly. And thus the legend was born which continues to reign even today.


Handle: The focus of this Gurkha VC Kukri is the blade hence the sheath and the handle is kept very simple. The handle is made from the horns of water buffalo, they are well treated before using as handle.

Sheath: Regular black leather is used for the sheath. The scabbard is kept simple with just a brass chape and housing for karda chakmak.

Kukri Stand: The price also includes a wooden display stand along with the kukri. (see photo)


Size of blade: 11 inch
