Welcome to Heritage Knives,
We are a small family owned business in the foothills of the majestic Himalayan mountains of Nepal
and dedicated to making high quality knives, especially Kukri knives.
If you are looking for high quality handcrafted Kukri knives then, you are at the right place!
Some of the World´s leading Kukri researchers & scholars, antique Kukri Collectors and Martial Arts masters have recommended Heritage Knives. Do have a look at our testimonials, a list which is growing steadily with well known users/professionals praising Heritage Knives around the world.
The world of Kukri knives can be very confusing, yes, we know, everyone claiming to be the best, one House over another, ina almost Game of Thrones fashion fighting over a cause that has little to do with what a Kukri should be like.
For us at Heritage Knives it´s about facts based on research and the real deal, we base our pieces on genuine antiques when we reproduce and on years of experience as makers and users when we create modern Kukri´s & knives.
We tried our fair share of what was available over the last 20 years and failing to find something we liked, we decided to produce our own Kukri knives. Blades from Heritage Knives are FUNCTIONAL & QUALITY focused, the way they should be as used over the last centuries, as used by our forefathers in civilian and military life.
If we are the best or not, only You can decide by using our various Blades.
We work closely with an international team of specialists to create, reproduce and forge blades using a blend of western and eastern traditions. Our quality standard is far beyond the Himalayas and at par with International Standards, handcrafted and forged for use in the outdoors, battle and any place you decide to take Heritage Knives with you!
Heritage Knives key words in what we do and make are:
Respect - Heritage - Innovation - Functionality - Quality.
Some use the spelling Khukuri others Khukri and we follow the British Army standard term KUKRI and make our blades for use. Never myths, always honest.
We remain original and true to the craft, to the art and to the science of forging a functional blade for you.
Copy us if you wish,
we will never copy you,
simple, it’s about Respect
Through our work we want to redefine the art & science of making Kukri knives in the Himalayas, the way our forefathers intended it to be and it was until modern times, Kukri knives men could TRUST on and live by.

Jai Mahakali Ayo Gurkhali Jai Kukri
Our techniques and methods use a blend of the West and East to create perhaps the finest blades made around the Himalayas.

It never was and never will be about mass production for us at Heritage Knives. For us it is about the Honour and Respect of hand crafting a blade for you.
At Heritage Knives we test our knifes in all stages of production and carry out perhaps some of the most rigorous testing any manufacturer within a 1000 km or longer does.
Once our blade is done, we test on various materials like buffalo horn, bone, ropes, various wood, bamboo, bricks, nails of different quality and metal.
Each Kukri/knife model has a purpose behind it and
we want to be sure you get the best we can make.
Kukris and other knifes we make are firstly tools, secondly weapons, and made for utilitarian use including military and various professionals
throughout the World.
Heritage Knives respects our heritage, hand made knives forged in fire by skill and logic where form follows function using knowledge from West and East. Trust is earned by proof.
Heritage Knives makes blades for a purpose, with a purpose.
Heritage Knives believes in honesty and transparency.
Heritage Knives stands for
Respect - Heritage - Innovation - Functionality - Quality.
