Mohammed Asad (23) of Bentley Street was sentenced to eight years 3 months for unlawful wounding against both victims, affray, possession of a bladed article and possession with intent to supply Class A drugs.
Conor Lyons (27) of Brook Street, was sentenced to two years and eight months for affray and unlawful wounding against one victim.
Kamil Wlasiuk (21) of Browing Road was sentenced to 18 months for affray and a single offence of unlawful wounding.
The three men all pleaded guilty to the offences,
Detective Inspector Oliver Coates of Kirklees CID, said: “We welcome the sentencing of these three men for what was a disgraceful display of violence in Huddersfield town centre.
“One of the two victims continued to be attacked even as he lay on the floor and it is extremely fortunate he was not even more seriously injured given the ferocity of the attack on him.
“The three defendants were identified and swiftly arrested following the incident and I hope their conviction brings some comfort to the victims in this case.”
