    The main HI website appears to be down. I hope all is well with the company.

    Chiruwa Ang Khola

    I have 3 of Vim's blades (18" Sirupati and two M-43s). All are very well done. In my experience, most HI Khukuris don't come very sharp, but they're great once you sharpen them up.

    Online Store Down?

    The online store link from the main HI site doesn't seem to be working. I know I can email Yangdu directly, but somebody should probably check it out.

    15' angkhola handle questions

    My CAK has a hot spot, but that's because the scales are horn and have shrunk slightly. Other than that, I've never felt a need to tinker with the handles.

    Okay, seriously? This is how I spend my free time and still keep a girlfriend?

    Sher makes them tough. I have a 16.5" WW2, CAK, 21" Chitlangi, and a Kumar Karda by Sher, and each one is excellent.

    Need help to identify the Kami

    Sher is one of the best! I have four of his knives, and all are fantastic. He was having some medical problems a few weeks ago; I hope he's doing better.

    Vim's work is great. I have one of his M-43s that is simply amazing.

    Prettiest khuk?

    As far as looks go, I've yet to see anything that beats a nice chitlangi.

    A Khukuri in the kitchen?

    Wow. I cooked professionally for six years, and I wouldn't have thought a khukuri would be suited for any of that ... blade too thick ... but that was awesome. Must be a helluva edge on that thing to do that work so well.

    somebody posted this link here a good while back. It's how I figured out how to sharpen. http://home.nycap.rr.com/sosak/convex.htm

    Differences between Kamis thread

    Sorry to hear Sher is no longer with the shop. He made some really remarkable knives -- probably my favorite kami.

    Sometimes I wonder

    Buying HI khukris is the most guilt-free buying I do. Do I need another? Of course not, and my wife hates them. But not only are you helping Yangdu make a living, you're directly supporting -- putting meat on the table -- probably a couple or few dozen people in one of the poorest countries...
