Hello & Namaste Folks,

I stumbled across this post while looking for expert advice on purchasing an original finely crafted useable khukri from Nepal. I am here for couple of days and could really use some clarity from the experts here.

-Is it advisable to sign up for one of those ‘ Make your own Khukri’ lessons here in KTM? Is it too touristy or the real deal?

-Which place would you advise to pick up a nice, strong, useable, long lasting, Original Khukri( not a showpiece)? Is Khukri House the best bet ?

- Is it a problem taking Khukri in unaccompanied baggage?
-Do I declare at Nepal Customs and India Customs?
-What is the legal limit of blade size( length) allowed on the Khukri? For me who is in love with blades Bigger and stronger is always better but don’t want to be on the wrong side of law in India.


Little about my myself:
I have been collecting swords and knives since I was a kid and have a natural affinity to them, it’s like Everyone of these has a Soul which I connect to and it’s very reassuring to have them. It’s like I literally fall in Love with my metals( this May sound funny to some).I am also into farming and a very outdoorsy person & put these to regular use in very tough and hard conditions.

Would really appreciate any advice on my queries!!

Thank you all 🙏🏽

Desiwarrior,

Back to forum after long, just saw your post, there are some very good smiths in Nepal, you can reach VK at Heritage, KHHI, Purna Darnal, Kailash Blades, Barun Bairali, Neem Tenji. All top notch. Stay away from Tourist Traps in Thamel for Kukri's.

Since I posted the original article, I have delved much deeper into the Kukri makers and the above it the top crop as far as I am concerned.

I know this answer is a few months late, but better late than never.

Do let us know what you bought Desiwarrior! cheers

Regards,
-P
