    This is my only acquisition of the year, a Mongol bow. It’s laminated with horn glued on one side and sinew on the other I haven’t strung it up yet because it makes scary creaking noises when I start bending it backwards. Worried it’s gonna snap and take my head off!

    I needed something fancy to bring to Mongolian/Tibetan new year, which began yesterday I think. I used to use a nice bone handled Buck 119, but one of my inlaws took a liking to it so I sold it. I wanted something hand made and a little fancy as a replacement so this guy fit the bill

    That's the one! I want something a bit fancier for the sheath. Maybe it's worthy of some pug pants?

    Normally I only like "historical style" pattern welding, but this one spoke to me. Hand made in Hungary. I just need to get a sheath made for it.

    Rain Snow and Sunshine deals for 2/22

    I wonder if that foxy folly would make a good hiking camping knife. I've always liked the klvuk for that but something a little lighter would be nice.

    Road Money for Rajkumar Kami for 11/17

    I have a Rajkumar Bashpati nearly identical to that one. It's a beautifully shaped piece of metal. It almost looks like it was naturally formed rather than forged.

    My Tibetan long sword has a very similar red mark on the hilt, gotta remember to take a picture of it.

    So awesome to have the back story and family connection, and a very handsome knife to boot! Definitely a family heirloom. Scandi edged knives sharpen up super easy but it also doesn't take much to chip them. I probably use my Puuko around the house more than any other knife.

    Here's a joke from another era: how is a teacher like a stamp? A stamp sticks with a lick, a teacher licks with a stick.
