Heritage Knives joins The GWT Business Club at Silver level

We are delighted to welcome Heritage Knives as a Silver member of The Gurkha Welfare Trust Business Club.

The Gurkhas are famed for carrying a kukri, a knife often used in Nepal, and we are proud to be working in partnership with Heritage Knives, a semi-custom kukri knife maker in Nepal.

Heritage Knives are a family-owned business with roots in both Nepal and Sweden. All of their kukris and knives are made by blending Himalayan and Western knife-making techniques and traditions, combining traditional arts with modern science.

David Watson, Corporate Partnerships Officer at The Gurkha Welfare Trust, said:

“We are delighted to have the support of Heritage Knives, who are continuing the ancient tradition of manufacturing the kukri in Nepal – the weapon of choice used by the Gurkhas. Heritage Knives are a family-run business and are passionate about supporting Gurkha veterans, their families, and communities in Nepal. I extend our thanks for their constant generosity in supplying kukris to the Trust to use in our annual auctions, which raise vital funds for our work in Nepal.”

Viking Kunor, owner of Heritage Knives, said:

“Heritage Knives Nepal is proud to support The Gurkha Welfare Trust and the amazing work they do for Nepal and the Gurkha community. It is our great honour and privilege to be able provide beautiful hand forged kukris for the GWT, which stands on tradition, military history and research. We are delighted to see the appreciation of the Gurkha’s strongest symbol “Kukri” within the GWT community as a sign of friendship.”
