I received my khukuri today. It was just as described. I don't think it could have got it any sooner if I had watched it being made. I am thinking I may buy another.

A cabo de recibir el cuchillo, realmente es una obra de arte. Espero en el futuro poder realizar mas compras con ustedes.

To all the khukuri fans: Dear friends, if you are looking for a place to buy the original khukuries, look no more...the Ex-gurkha khukuri house of Nepal is in my opinion the best place to get them. Excellent customer service, you can even chat with them live on Skype ( not like other sites that announce live chat and they are not available when you try it). I ordered a custom made 11"Bladed Dhankute Horn Special Khukuri (with three deep chirras on the blade) and instead of one I got three knives....( these are one of the most expensives and beautiful knives they produce ). Apparently there was confussion with the order I had placed. The first knife that arrived was extremely beautiful... I am not exagerating...but not exactly what I had ordered, then a second knife as beautiful as the first one but too light for what I needed...and finally a third knife arrived and it was exactly what I had just ordered...They are polished, sharp and awesome !!! I tried to return the first two since they were not what I had ordered, but they let me keep them...WOW !!! I am doing my best to sell them and return their money to them, why?....well it is my way to thank, encourage and give my support to these highly skilled men that with almost no tools make these amazing art pieces; I have a lot of respect for the Gurkhas...go ahead and read about them, learn who they are, their story, their noble hearts and courage. My special thanks and words of encouragement to Mr. Giri, who has for so long being very patient with me.
To all of you knife collectors, listen to this: I have visited and bought knives from several khukuri online stores from all over Nepal, collecting knives is my hobby... you will find many good knives out there...but you will get MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCKS with great quality and beautiful craftmanship with the Ex-Gurkha Khukuri House. I own about 25 knives from all over the world, and most of them I could say are real art works...and to be honest with you these three Dhankute Horn Special khukuries I just received are among the five best knives that I have, no doubts about it. Thank you Ex-Gurkha KH, thank you Mr. Giri.
