  • A great shop to pick up a Gurkha knife. Staff are helpful. They have a vast selection of knives of all sizes  more »
  • I visited Kathmandu, Nepal last October. One of the highlights of my 7 day trip was being able to visit Ex Ghurka House. I checked out their website prior to the trip, because of my intent to purchase...  more »
  • As a reminder of Nepal I wanted to buy a genuine Gurkha knife. I expressed a desire to help nepalese who accompanied us and this took me into the shop in question actually stocked with knives are very different from those displayed on stalls. Happy, I bought one from 25 cm, for a hundred euros. Then I took a flight aagereo which took me to China and I saw myself sequester knife I had stowed in hold baggage you despite the plane. Regarding guidance I objected to the travel agency because the Guide hired by them did not bother to let me know that introdeurre is not allowed in China edged weapons; knowing that my trip would be continued in that direction. However, the seller should have warned me about this additional issue of the Chinese.

  • Here you will find the real thing. But you need to specifically ask for the real one. So not all the fancy decorated over-sized models that you will see displayed at most of the Tourist shops. The steel is not so great for the decorated knifes. But if you want to purchase an original knife with a bend blade. The one they call a Khukkuri" is an outdoors tool what is used by the Gurkha guards. and the store owner used to be one Gurkha.
  • I love these guys. Blade arrived in 5 days and was very cheap. Yeah it's not perfect but that makes it all the more personal and unique. You think blades back in the day were fought with perfect, factory shaped weapons? They were blades like this! Authentic, imperfect and awesome. I will treasure it for years to come.
  • Best place for buy token of love and other handicrafts equipment specially khukuri .
  • Just received my second khukuri from them, and it is fantastic! Support is always very responsive and accommodating. I'd buy from them, again.
  • Fantastic service, ordered Friday night and turned up the following Thursday. Buffalo horn is flawless and the blade is brilliant though does have marks (it wouldn't be a Khukuri if it didn't in my opinion). Tracking number was listed as not in the system when conformation was sent HOWEVER this updated as soon as DHL had logged the package into their system. Fantastic service and product.
