    Second Day Offerings

    The Bowie is enticing. Would make a great Sheff's knife IMHO!

    Much respect and many thanks for Karda, the Kami's, Yangdu and really all in the H.I. company and community.

    Review of Ang Khola (with finger grooves) by Rajkumar, Picture Heavy

    The "Predator" called, he wants his invisible knives back (especially now that Arnie is back in the game) :)

    GANGA RAM and BAS Chopping! (pic heavy)

    Great, so they pass the first test with flying colors! Collecting and using those things is addictive for sure :)

    GANGA RAM and BAS Chopping! (pic heavy)

    Nice pics! How did the edges handle the work? Any rolling or chipping worth talking about other than the usual battle scars to the mirror polish? How large would you say are the hardened sweet spots on each? Thanks! Please keep the reviews coming :)

    Deals for 8/6 -- Pix Lok's Hanshe and Great Buys

    Wow, it's been a while since I last saw a Hanshe! Its weight is perfect for my tastes in a fighter, as was recently discussed on this forum. Congrats to whomever gets it!

    My GANGA RAM!!!

    I hope you post pics or vids when you get them! Those must be sweet, in a very heavy and lethal sort of way :) Did you mean for the the 25" siru to be a two-handed affair with a longish handle? That would make it an axe/sword with impressive bragging rights. Custom orders make H.I. an even...

    My GANGA RAM!!!

    The first step is admitting we have a problem, I don't know what the 11 remaining steps are, but if they include selling my collection, then I am not interested. As for the Sirupate V. Chitlangi dilemma, I would always vote for a Chitlangi. If I have one khukuri that never "spoke" to me, it is...

    My GANGA RAM!!!

    I forget now, but I am pretty sure Owen's GRS was 22" long or longer. Then again, he was also dealing with tougher stock than you will :) By the same token, in the last MHI book, he had a huge, possibly chiruwa, Chitlangi. You will really like those guys, if you haven't tried them yet. More...

    My GANGA RAM!!!

    I think the all caps in the title are well deserved :) That is a the khukuri equivalent of a Barrett .50 BMG. Only you don't ever run out of ammo!

    Khukuri Maintenance video from youtube

    Hoping not to get too off-topic, I just want to address what "sweetcostarica" mentioned both here and earlier as a comment on one of my YT videos. It seems that this thread is already "hijacked" by this topic anyway. I completely agree that unless you are built like Ronnie Coleman, Jay Cutler...

    Khukuri Maintenance video from youtube

    Hi, guys, Just for those who don't know me, I have the YouTube Channel "1nvrknws" and used to post videos among other things hoping to popularize these amazing tools and works of art made by HI (though their popularity only makes it harder to shark knives on this forum, I would gladly pay that...

    Fox Folly - Too pretty to use?

    Thank you, Sir! Yes, it is part of my daily routine to check out the DOTD and the other posts here and on the BF's Exchange. I don't buy anything anymore sadly, but a man can dream and can certainly always learn more. This is a good place to do both with some great forumites :)

    Fox Folly - Too pretty to use?

    Yep, though not lately... life hit me fast and hard, so no time for that now other than as a spectator :)

    Fox Folly - Too pretty to use?

    I say get 2, one user and one to cherish. I got one gorgeous FF for my GF that gets no use obviously, and another one for me. I would never use it for chopping wood (unlikely as a weapon either) as I would rather reach for an AK, Bonecutter, Ganga Ram, etc. for the tough jobs. So they are...

    Opinions on custom order

    I would hazard a guess that anyone with quality and lengthy training in escrima/kali/krabi krabong/etc. would pick up khukuri fighting pretty quickly (in martial-art years) after exercising extreme caution due to the added weight and the forward bend of the blade affecting the POB. After all...
