I've just received my Jungle Khukuri, and I would like to express my extreme statisfaction... I'm not an expert but quality is awesome, the knife seems indestructible and well balanced. It's the first knife in my blades collection, but I already know that it won't be my last Khukuri... I'll spread the word around to bring you new customers as I'm sure that they'll be as satisfied as I am. A. Assad FRANCE
Khukuris were received in a timely manner. Quality was as good as hoped for. It was pleasant to receive a well made handcrafted item in this age of computerized robotic construction.
There will be several more in my future.
It is not a wood or brush chopper but has the feel, heft, balance, and speed of......... Of the N.K.H. Kukris I have examined, the Cheetlange is the one that I would want to have in my hand in a defensive situation. It has the length 18-1/2 inches total to give one excellent standoff distance. In my opinion, it is not a wood or brush chopper but has the feel, heft, balance, and speed of a nearly perfect combat blade. Mine came with an immaculate horn handle with an extra large bell at the butt with 6 inches from the start of the bolster to the end of the tang. For the smaller individual the Chainpure is nearly identical to the Cheetlange but is only 15-1/5 inches overall length and is much lighter. One of the attractions of the Cheetlange is that of many years I used cane knives to harvest cane and have a kinetic muscular preconditioning to these size knives.
6-19-07 Today I received the Ganjawal Special and I must say..the picture does no justice to the knife. Wonderful craftsmanship, superb quality. Extremely pleasing to the eye. Attention to detail was not left out. From the colors on the sheath to the carving on the blade, to the dramatic design of the handle. This is a well balanced knife. The fulcrum is roughly 2 3/4 inches in. With a neck 7/16 inches wide that tapers to 1/16 of an inch at the tip. Because of the calibration, the total weight adds to the power of this Khukuri. Very impressed. To add, the transaction with the Napalese Khukuri House has been excellent. This being my first time with them. I place my order on the evening of 6-15-07. Immediately, I was sent an e-mail confirming the order and witching 24 hours, I received am e-mail from the administration with details on the status of the order. Included a tracking number for UPS. I was able to actually travel with the package as UPS posted the where about of the package and status of transit. Four days after placing the order, I received the Khukuri. Amazing team work between countries and staff. I give this transaction an A+. As we say in America, Napalese Khukuri House "walks the talk". Thank you fellows, looking forward to my next knife:) Sincerely, DAN Jowers, New York, United States of America
I recently decided to purchase Gurkha Knives as gifts for the Groomsmen in my wedding. With very short notice, NKH was able to put together and ship my order. It took less than a week for the beautifully engraved and monogrammed pieces to arrive in the middle of the U.S. The service, from start to finish, was truly exemplary! The quality of the knives was excellent, and I would give my highest recommendation. Although possibly an odd statement from an urban dwelling American, I will purchase more and all of my future Gurkha knives from this fine company. You simply won't find any better service than you will find here.
