Dedicated to Everyone in Himalayan >> Don't go into the Great Himalayas without one. 

The story behind the name >>

The kukri is nicknamed after the legendary Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas, YETIAlthough it may be a myth belief or anything, this kukri represents everyone in the wild snow lands. This khukuri is endurance to the people, animals, and nature itself who live so closely in the harshest wilderness; we call it the extreme wilderness. This kukri is dedicated to the wild creature of the Himalayas and Mountains of Nepal who are in the verge of extinct to survival similar to a 'Khukuri'. 


The Designer >>

This blade is designed by outdoorsman and knife enthusiast Daniel Linstromberg. Daniel tried for years, with many different blades, each with their own merits, but each with their own downsides. Instead of bringing a bushcraft knife, hatchet, and saw, he wanted a single working knife he could take with him to the woods. The designer himself nicknamed it YETI. KHHI later expanded and explained the name making it the 'Himalayan khukuri' and released on 29th Mar 2017, at KHHI, Kathmandu, Nepal.

Making & Composition >> (blade, handle & Sheath)

Starting with the Sirupate style blade of the ‘Cheetah' kukri, Daniel decided to improve the handle. The unique shape both protects the hand from sliding forward with a guard at the top, and a swell at the bottom keeps the blade firmly in the hand. Rings have also been carved in the handle to further secure the hand. There is also a lanyard hole at the base, to secure it even more. It’s a full tang; with 5inch rosewood handle

The blade is marginally increased to 10.5 inches, along with the blade thickness to 7 mm to make it better and strong. The final product (blade+handle) weighs 600 grams making it a good weight knife.

For ease of maintenance, and for security, the handle isn't bolted, it's secured with L-key bolts. In a further attempt to reduce weight, the traditional wood and leather scabbard is replaced with western style sheath, made from high-quality leather, sewn and secured with brass rivets making it more flexible to carry on.


The best use, purpose, and effectiveness>>

The combination of the super-comfortable handle, the excellent sheath, and the lightweight makes Yeti a blade you can chop comfortably with, all day. It’s entitled as so, to showcase it as the closest thing to the equally legendary 'one tool option'. 

If you are into the Himalayas or Mountains; this can be a lifesaver kukri knife in any difficult/ weird situations, where the rocks and snow are piled over more often. This knife is more than useful for mountaineering, treks or rock climbing, where low quality and tampered knives fail to give a high-performance result. It's your reliable companion for surviving the solitary of the Great Himalayas.
