the slug of metal that is a finger guard is also weight at the center? also is this raj kumar or kumar kumar?

Is this an answer to the "Balance" question? If yes I'm referring to these:

Yeah I clearly see where you get that idea. I just can't own them all at the same time. :)

I have a feeling that the "Balance" will be back as opposed to the Super CAK which looks like a beautiful oddity beast.

I got the done deal email this morning for the balance. I have never been more eager to send money to someone I've never met :D

Thanks for the vouch.

I would love it if that were the case. I came in too late for that one, but it was the ideal target, exactly what I'm looking for in my first. Another long bladed Chiruwa pops up like that fish model and I'm all over it.

They are called balance knives because the balance point is in the very center, and the knife will balance/sit level on a tree branch, etc.

A mystery shark got the first one here and I snatched the other one Auntie had in stock. I can't wait to feel it in hands.

Cool, love those pictures! Glad to see one of your finest craftsman come home.

That 25" Siru looks like a nice piece...............gah I don't need a third one of those though, that's for sure. I need to stop looking at it.

Good to see two of our much missed kamis returning to the family!
These guys are awesome craftsmen and outstanding producers.
Maybe things will be looking better this year on the business end. The last couple of years have been trying, to say the least, and I'm sure I don't know the 1/2 of it.

As someone who has only been around these parts for about two years it does seem like there has been a lot going on. Political upheaval in Nepal, switching to a new location, lots of kamis coming and going, etc.

I hope sales have still been strong at least, would hate to see all of this come to an end.

AFAIK, sales have been so strong that it's hard to keep stock on hand, but stock shipments have been less.
IIRC, not too long ago Auntie ended up selling the cupboards almost bare trying to keep up with sales, now it's fighting to get the stock built up again. That's why some models may be unavailable at the time ordered. Hopefully, Auntie is getting stocked up and with these two fine producers shortages won't be a problem.
