    Dude! I was ready to snag that one at that price! Grats Sir! Them first two are real beauties tho! I already have them except that YCS has a really cool looking Sword of Shiva! Great selections today for sure!
    cul..dont you have a 25" Siru? I know you dont have a 25" Kobra cause I stole that one from ya less you got another:rolleyes:? I think that 25" Siru was the third blade I ever bought from HI and I still use it more than anything else in my collection (uh..maybe my Reti excluding). It shows it too.

    Its 5.2mm from the widest point just behind the knee. Oh..Merican dog. Thats well under a quarter inch 0.2045".

    That is a beauty, ndog. Thanks for the info. I'll be on the lookout. Your table looks like my work bench. Where's Waldo? Like the Burmuda Triangle for tools.

    I was wondering if the KLVUK listed above is still available. I used to be a regular here a long time ago when Uncle Bill was still with us. I haven't bought an HI blade for a long time. Thinking it might be time.

    Send an email to Yangdu [email protected]. She is the only one that knows for sure.
    If this ones gone, she most likely has another to fix you up.

    Welcome back.

    I'm afraid this is going to end up being the start of a collection.
