Apparently it was not the Hyksos - they (& the native Egyptians) got them about 50 years after the start of Hyksos rule in Egypt.

This expensive weapon spread throughout the Middle East and is thought to have reached Egypt with the conquering Hyksos during the Second Intermediate Period. It spread into Asia Minor, Greece and was known in Northern Europe by 1500 BC

There's quite a long and interesting article. This is just a small excerpt.
