Nepal is the country of thousands of tribes, among them; a clan is called Bishwakarma or Kami who makes khukuri. The Khukuri making is one of the oldest professions of Kamis. Their source of incoming is only crafting these knives. More than 15000 Kamis have been involving in making Khukuris in Nepal. Among them we have selected expertise to make each blade. A different tribe called Saarki makes the sheath of a blade. Therefore combination of these both tribes’ craftsmanship, a single khukuri is complete.

All the Khukuris are specially hand crafted and designed. The making of a single knife keeps four men fully occupied for an entire day; some time even more. All raw materials such as steel, brass rosewood, buffalo horns and hides and other necessary things are first carefully selected and only the best are utilizes. Craftsmen themselves collect the buffalo hides, horns, woods (for handle) and coals from their own villages. The steel (car, buses or trucks spring), brass, white metal, and other essential metals are available at the local markets, and then only the actual process of making the Khukuris started, Most of the craftsmen make the Khukuri in their own home. Help of others family members’ play a vital rule to craft best Khukuri.
