That WWII is about as perfect as they get. Always loved the elegant girl-next-door comeliness of that:)

Awesome hoping I win this one. Will be the heaviest khuk I own, is yours around this weight? Does it feel very forward heavy?

Ems sent for the 18 inch 28 ounce Dui Chirra by Thamar

Got the DD - this CAK handle version should pair nicely with my 18 inch 25 ounce Thamar Dui Chirra. Just the right pair to replace my Baby kobras and 15 inch Purna Sirupatis when needing more firepower!

I bought the shorter for portability, but as posted elsewhere, most mass seems concentrated at elbow of blade closer to hand until fully committed to the strike/chop/hack/blow/whatever....i deployed several times with a shorter Ang Khola and the WWII seems a more lively yet heavy chopper and not so massive....and i just plain like the basic no-frill khukuriness of the thing......as also posted elsewhere, if i were again recalled and thrown out of a perfectly good airplane, despite owning some pretty pricey handforged USA knives, the WII is the one i would take...photos are on the "knife for the end of the world" or whatever bizarre thing i came up with on this page still, i think, if you wish to see closer ups....
Blade heavy? Of course....it is a khukuri....would say on mine the heft is as of a hatchet the length to the elbow of blade....but with greatly improved reach....

Email sent three different ways on the M-43. :)
Looks like I'm probably too late on this one, too.

I was hoping for a big old pile of Durba and Bura made blades, but there are a couple of real beauties being offered.

I may be hooked on HI Khuks. Beautiful blades. My first one should be arriving this week. I will take it to the field soon.

lol...me too, I bet there's a few of us that were thinking that exact same thing.

Bawanna might have just inched a little closer to falling off the edge of his motorchair in anticipation...

Dobe,
I missed your notice of EMS while I was typing my own emails.
If you beat me, you beat me. :)

I really had not intended to throw more money West for several weeks anyway, but the 43 just keeps coming up. :)

And I can't think of anybody I'd rather see have it than you.
(If I can't. :) )
