More than 200 Metal smith (kamis ) from bhojpure, salyan, dhankuta and chainpure are employed in the factory. Our craftsmen are so efficient and dedicated that they are able to produce any type of the Kukri in any said design and engrave with artistic patterns on special order. Our khukuris are original, strong and graceful. They are totally made by the professional metal smith by hand from hammering the hot high grade carbon steel to fixing the handle into it (except the shining of the blade is done by buffing machine).
From a young age , Mr. Himal Raj Giri (Managing Director of Ex Gurkha Khukuri House) became interested in khukuris as he is a guy from chetri family and mainly due to stories told to him by his grandfather, who served with the Gurkhas (Nepal Army). Then at the age of 10 years Himal began training in Martial Arts. After receiving black belt 1st Dan in Kyoukosin karate in his early twenties he started instructing the junior players. Along with the martial arts background, Mr. Himal Raj Giri determined to combine his sport “karate” and weapon “the khukuri”. At first he joined one of the khukuri house in Thamel and worked there as a Manager for about 5 years.
