    Dhar wood information for HI new and longtime clients

    The tree produces this red colored wood grows in southern Nepal, a flatland that resembles Louisiana. It is warm humid and full of mosquitos. The wood is so strong that it is used to make Theki, which is a bell with a direct connection to the Nepalese occult. It is used to make a homemade brew, Jadnh , by ensuring fermentation. The wood has several uses, including making wagon wheels for Gada, a wagon pulled by oxen or water buffaloes. If this beautiful wood is strong to be made into wagon wheels, it should be more than strong enough for wooden handles.
    This unusual reddish wood makes the Knives I have special and rare. It will hold a special place in your collections.

    18"
    29 ounce.

    I have an m43 that size.

    Granted, the straight handle makes it more front heavy. These shorter, curved handles are more balanced feeling.
